With the coronavirus spreading throughout Oregon, health care workers have expressed the urgent need for protective gear for first responders in various industries. Many in Lane County have been searching for ways to do their part during this time. One Springfield man said he understands how critical protective gear is and started a project over the weekend to create a face shield using a 3D printer. “Supplies these days are very low,” Robert Asumendi said. “The 3D printing community came together over the last few days and figured out that we can produce these all over the world with the printers we have. We can assemble these face shields and at least provide some relief.”
