Ear Savers Delivered
What We Make
Face Shield - 3DVerkstan
A lightweight and comfortable face shield that is fastened by glasses-style arms. This shield can be fastened even more securely by adding a rubber band at the back. It was designed by 3DVerkstan, a 3D printing company from Sweden. The shield is reusable by a single user. The transparent visor can be replaced as needed.
Face Shield - Budmen Industries
A sturdy face shield fastened with an elastic band around the back of the head. This shield design has plenty of room for glasses and large masks. It was designed by Budmen Industries, a 3D printing company from Syracuse, New York. The shield is reusable by a single user. The transparent visor can be replaced as needed.
These 3D printed straps wrap around the back of the head and prevent elastic mask bands from chafing the ears. They can sit directly between the ears or higher up on the head. We produce several ear saver designs and may fulfill orders with any designs available.
Who We Are
SOMA's 3D Printer Alliance
SOMA NJ 3D Printers Alliance is a volunteer group created to provide face shields free of charge to frontline medical workers, first responders, long term care facilities, and shelters in our communities. The members of the Alliance include around 30 volunteers who 3D print face shields as well as over 100 families who help with assembly and delivery. The group started in the towns of South Orange and Maplewood (known locally as SOMA) and has grown to include members from across New Jersey. The work of the group is funded through donations.
