3D Printed Anti-Pollution Mask Optimized With Help From Sinterit And Autodesk

3D Printed Anti-Pollution Mask Optimized With Help From Sinterit And Autodesk

3D designer Bartłomiej Gaczorek has produced a mask that filters out polluted air on a Sinterit Lisa SLS 3D printer. Gaczorek, who has previously 3D printed an exoskeleton for children suffering from SMA (Spinal  Muscular Atrophy), designed the “brifo” mask, also aimed at younger users, on Autodesk Netfabb, before SLS 3D printing it with multiple materials. The bare necessities of
