3-D Printing PPE & the Rise of the Makers

May 26, 2020 | Podcast, Season 3

​How are small businesses responding to COVID-19? In this episode, we interview Billy Davis, owner of the FabLab, a maker space providing 3D printing services and classes. When COVID-19 hit, the FabLab pivoted by creating nearly 4,000 face shields and 600 face masks for medical workers. These 3-D printed masks enable N95 masks to be reused 6 times. We discuss the maker mindset and what churches can learn from maker space culture.

Listen in to hear the story of Billy’s entrepreneurial journey and how faith and technology can make a difference in times like these.
