RESPIRATOR MASK DISCLAIMER:
This prototype model is pending NIH assessment for community use. The results of this process may result in modification.
~Prior version of respirator has NIH Approval.~
The Maker Mask Respirator has been approved by the NIH for all general community applications: This approval applies for use outside of the direct healthcare setting and benefits critical front-line essential service providers including: Police/Law Enforcement, Fire and Rescue and other Emergency Response service providers. The Maker Mask is also a great option for essential service resources providing our communities with food and other needed supplies: Grocery, Delivery, Transportation and other supporting services.
We’re Building a Community of 3D Printing Enthusiasts to Fight the COVID-19 Global Crisis
Our goal is to enable people to meet the community needs for respirator-quality masks and other critical medical supplies through 3D printing around the world.
Humanitarians, People with 3D printers, hobbyists, civic groups, Maker Spaces, universities, schools churches and available willing/government units. Donations to this effort can be made through our Maker Mask/RPrime Donation Center. Donation Center.
Enabling communities to create necessary goods locally and quickly will lessen the spread of disease, protect more people, reduce burdens on medical facilities/DoD/governments, and give Americans something they can do to be part of the solution to this pandemic, while building and training capability for the future.
The Maker Mask is a respirator style mask created by Rory Larson at the request of several local hospitals in Seattle.
We are mindful of costs and have tried to limit barriers to participating. Not including electricity or cost of printers and labor - which is all volunteer and donated here in Seattle - the costs of the inputs are low we estimate that the cost of each finished mask to be roughly between $2 and $3 dollars.
“Good news! Seattle Children’s Hospital has a team that has tested and medically endorsed the Respirator mask."
The World Needs Maker Mask
1. Medical community reviewed and endorsed Open Source 3D printable mask.
2. Re-usable. Flexibility on filters than can be used and replaced.
3. Buildable with readily available items found at most local hardware stores.
4. Maker Mask can be custom-fit to your face through a simple heating and shaping process – if needed.
5. Patent Pending design by Rory Larson. He is contributing it free of charge and delivering it open source.
6. Funding for the initiative provided by RPrime, a Washington State 501 (c)(3) non-profit.
SEATTLE CROWD-SOURCING “FRANCHISE” PILOT
Seattle is all about scale and entrepreneurship. In Seattle, a team consisting of Rory and Garr Larson, and Jonathan Roberts are starting a Maker Mask community-based production run. Our vision is to scale this production by creating “Small Batch Production Franchises.”
As of March 29, 2020 we have accumulated 40 3D printers and supplies to create up to 20K masks. We believe that we could be running 24 hours a day and produce 300 masks per day with this effort. Through Small Batch Production, we can create all the back-up materials and support infrastructure necessary for your group or organization to create your own Small Batch Production facility.
We intend to share their best practices and hopefully start a movement in the humanitarian, hobbyist, civic communities. We can show you how.
