Production of the pro-shield has continued all week. With limited time and resources, the PRO guys have done an incredible job making something out of nothing but a few kilos of PLA. The raw material has yielded multiple finished products, and with the 3D printer running all weekend, the first batch of emergency face shields will be delivered to Michael Garron Hospital on Easter Monday.
Daniel, Darryl and Curtis from Professional Racing Ontario were never going to fill the shortage themselves. The goal of the campaign was to challenge the racing community to join the fight against the virus. Many race shops have 3D printers, and if the message could get out to enough people, others would do their part.
The response on social media has been incredible, with thousands of people reached, and most importantly, the story being shared over 100 times. That kind of networking will quickly spread the word!
