MTU 3D Prints Personal Protection Equipment for Our Community

Michigan Technological University’s library is empty but not quiet. A fleet of 3D printers hums along, producing thousands of face shields for local health care workers, emergency responders, law enforcement, and other essential employees who need PPE.
