Local News

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — Tri-Staters are using their 3-D printers to make face shields for those who need them the most, and one man says he’s already made over 400.

EVSC employee Michael Stauth reached out to organizations offering to help and through a program at Ivy Tech, he and other have printed face shields that will go to medical workers, food workers and police officers.

“We find out that someone needs say 70 masks, so either 10 people or 5 people get together, they make those 70 masks, we have a distribution network already where it goes to one person, that person gets it and get it to the person that requests it and we just move on,” Stauth said.

Stauth says he’s now working on a prototype to 3D print face masks.
