Good design: Fighting COVID-19 with distributed manufacturing

Author(s): Jordan Elevons

COVID-19 has caused a flurry of innovation in the medical 3D printing space, with hobbyists and experts from around the world chipping in with designs for masks, surgical mask tie-backs, swabs and more. This session will focus on the qualities that make one 3D printed design better than another, the importance of making designs modular and open to editing and perhaps most importantly, how to factor in supply chain disruptions and navigate around them to get finished objects to where they need to go.
