Middle School student Canyon Rauch is 3D printing face shields for frontline workers. Rauch prints the personal protective equipment on his own printer and makes roughly five shields daily. Each shield takes over two hours to make. He has made 250 shields so far.
“I was inspired to do this because of the global pandemic occurring and I thought it was something I could do to help out. I have donated around 50 masks already and I am getting ready to donate a lot more to doctors' offices around the state,” said Rauch.
Rauch said the cost to make the masks is minimal, they are lightweight, and users can wear glasses and a facemask along with the shield.
Middle School science teacher Matt Oster applauded Rauch's efforts, saying he is one of the most talented 3D engineers and designers in the Benjamin community.
