Doors may be closed but staff may be on site.  We have almost 400 3D  printers in Ontario’s libraries . . .


“We’re making an urgent call to all 3D printer owners in Waterloo Region to help us produce PPE face shields to combat COVID-19. We are currently working on creating a laser cuttable file to increase production but any help 3D printing headbands in the meantime will make an impact.

If you or someone you know has a 3D printer we would greatly appreciate any help printing these files. We will take care of assembly and providing the clear face shield and elastic head strap. We just need help producing the 3D printed parts.

Below you can find the CAD model file created by Prusa3D with the recommended print settings for slicing.

All 3D printed PPE headbands can be dropped off at our office at 44 Gaukel Street in Kitchener. Please text Jessica (519-616-9955)  or email to arrange a drop-off time.

Please note, InkSmith is working with a team of doctors to ensure all the necessary protocols are taken in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We have set up a touchless drop-off system for those wanting to contribute 3D prints. After they’re received our team will be sanitizing all items with an ozone generator. From there, the hospitals will execute their own practices for disinfecting the masks prior to use. 

If you have any questions or are available to assist with assembly/production in any way please contact
