One of SoMd Loves You's first products is a line of 3D printed face masks. Across the state, group members printed, sanitized, and collected masks for distribution. The face mask frame originated from an open source design. The group further optimized the design for comfort based on feedback from local medical professionals.
It conforms well to faces and can be made in a variety of sizes
It is available locally, is cost effective, immediate and efficient for production using 3D printing
It allows switching out the material used to filter air making the mask reusable. This also allows us to iterate and improve on the mask without having to reprint the frames. Filters can be easily removed and inserted into the frame.
