COVID-19 PPE
We offer Low cost* FDM 3D Printing of PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) such as face shields, face mask frames, ventilator valves for Hospitals and Health Care professionals across Canada. Tell us which design you need printed and we will drop it off at your Ottawa location or ship it to a hospital in Canada. All items will be rinsed with >75% IPA for several minutes unless you have other requirements.
*no charge for labour, cleaning, or setup, only pay for material costs & shipping.


We price match a competing quote & 10% OFF (same 3D print type).

Compared to other large scale 3D printing companies we offer cheaper overall solution tailored to your needs with a faster turn-around. With personal consultation and fast iteration of Design & 3D-print cycle you will be able to achieve better results quicker and cheaper.  Before we can quote we typically review the design files and consult clients regarding appropriate materials or the type of printers that are best suited for client’s application.

We have done many different 3D prints, such as: enclosures, cases, mounts, rings, figurines, architectural pieces, functional engineering parts. Typical order build time is 2-4 business days. Multiple models can be printed in parallel on up to 18 FDM and 2 SLA resin printers. FDM materials: ABS, PLA, Nylon, PC, Carbon Fiber reinforced filaments. SLA Resins: regular, castable, tough, flexible resins. Many different colours available (FDM, SLA).
