- Idaho STEM Action Center’s Idaho Maker’s Unite – Full of resources on making PPE, resources for makers, and ways to support local organizations
- Boise State community poised to 3D print vital medical equipment – After much trial and error, the group has chosen two face shield models. One uses 3D-printed clips that attach a plastic face shield to any hat with a brim. Information for anyone who wants to get involved or donate to this grassroots effort.
- GetUsPPE – Healthcare workers are front line fighters against COVID-19, but they face critical shortages of Personal Protective Equipment nationwide. PPE enhances their safety so they can keep caring for our loved ones. Request, give, or make PPE.
- NIH 3D Print Exchange collection on 3D design for PPE for healthcare workers during COVID-19: The page is being updated daily with clinical recommendations/approval, and has design and print instructions/recommendations.
