Pot Mates Cannabis Delivery 3D Prints Its Masks
We’re 3D printing masks and face shields for our staff in the fight against Covid-19!
Our CTO Jason Hinson has amazing skills and technology that help make Pot Mates what it is today. Using his Sindoh 3DWOX DP200 3D printer, we’ve been experimenting with a design called the Montana Mask, to make a safe, reusable mask that can be sterilized between uses and custom-fitted to the wearer’s face. For additional protection, we’re also making Prusa face shields. Working with a local non-profit in Portland called PDX Hackerspace, we print the headbands to be fitted with laser, (emphasis on laser,) cut polycarbonate shields (provided by other helpful individuals with a hands-on can-do spirit), which could then be distributed to local clinics.
They’re perfect for us to keep our employees, our products, and—most importantly—our customers safe from Covid-19. The face shields are approved for medical use since they fit right over respirators. Originally, our plan was to donate these to medicinal professionals in need—that was before PPE production really ramped up. Now that we have some extras, is there anybody else who needs one? Let us know!
We’re all in this together, and every bit helps in this fight against COVID-19! Pot Mates is also working on protein-folding to helping fight the pandemic with Folding@Home. Join our team!
We take the threat of Covid-19 very seriously and want all of our partners and customers to know that we exercise every precaution we can to keep you and our employees safe.
