A little Back Story

At the onset of lockdown due to coronavirus, we considered donating few face shields to frontline workers, we realized that making of 3D printed shields does not scale well, each print takes an hour or two, 100 shields would take us between 5 to 10 days. We said to ourselves, there has to be another way. In a span of 30 days our team iterated over a hundred designs and constructed prototypes to develop this workable model.

Why Cardboard

Corrugated paper board is a versatile material, it can be bent and broken to accommodate many shapes, it is cost effective, it is scalable and sustainable. It came up as our natural choice.
