Why 3D Printing Is Effective for Disaster Response
“Why is 3D printing effective for disaster response?”
When a disaster strikes, supplies can often come up short. However, if a 3D printer is around, objects can be made on the spot. For example, during the 2019-2020 Coronavirus pandemic, an engineering student was able to 3D print facemasks for care workers when supplies came short.
