LATI robotics faculty using 3D printers to produce protective face shields, face masks

March 30, 2020

WATERTOWN, S.D.–The Lake Area Tech Robotics program faculty is assisting local healthcare providers and first responders by using the program’s 3D printers to produce protective face shields and face masks.

Because it takes approximately 13 hours to print just one of these much-needed pieces, we are asking community members who have a 3D printer to please consider sharing it with us in our efforts to mass produce these items.

If you do, please contact our Robotics Department Supervisor, Brooks Jacobsen at [email protected] or call 605.880.6879.
