Students, faculty, and staff from School of Industrial Design and School of Jewelry & Metal Arts who have 3D printers at home have been invited to join this initiative. The face shields produced by the team have been collected at Industrial Design Shop for sterilization and assembly.
"I'm proud to see our entire university come together to produce potentially life-saving equipment," said Niehaus. "Students, faculty, and technicians from the Schools of Industrial Design, Jewelry, Architecture, and Sculpture have worked tirelessly to see this through. The online 3D-printing community's open source ethos allowed us to get started, and we look forward to sharing our work with other institutions."
In response to COVID-19 and updated state and federal health guidance, Academy of Art University has moved all classes online.
