DIY protective mask with activated carbon filter against COVID-19: this is a prototype printed in very soft TPU 80A by Recreus (Spain) without supports, it can hold an interchangeable filter with activated carbon but above all it can be printed in Copper3D - MD Flex by Formfutura Holland, a surgical filament with the addition of nanoparticles capable of DESTROYING up to 99.99% of viruses, bacteria and microorganisms that come into contact with the material (other than the simple cotton masks) ... Nobody produces masks with this material obviously, but since we are Makers at least let's think about it.
The combination of a highly antibacterial material (used for prostheses) and an activated carbon filter makes this nice object an interesting scientific experiment ... Obviously is Open Source: we publish all the files on Thingiverse, if anyone wants to develop it, they are welcome, anyone with a printer can do it at home.
ITALYmaker born in 2013 from a free blog online, creating the first 3D printing Open Source Laboratory in Milan, Italy. The target is the creation of a Lab partner network in Italy, based on Open Source technologies and sharing economy, to diffuse and increase the Italian products, both machines FDM and filaments, to share coworking and productions and develop our online community.
