Annoying... our local hospital is asking if someone could help printing 100 of these faceshields and my MINI still hasn't shipped <_<

If you're in the US, I urge you to join the Masks for Docs (MFD) slack group. There is a wealth of information there, including sub-groups set up for each regional area. Even if you can't currently print, there may be some way to help out. If nothing else, connect your local hospital to resources that may be able to help them out.

RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

My mini is finally here 😍 

Can't wait to open the box...

 

Everything seems to be in order so far...

 

Great, nothing is missing!

 

The tiny steel sheet is so cute ❤️ 

 

Of course here are the gummi bears!

 

Ready for the assembly with my trusty thinkpad...

 

Buddy board!

 

Minda probe height adjustment: done!

 

Hot end fix: done! Also, I changed the grub screws with some sturdier ones I had on hand

 

In its new home...

 

Printing a benchy right now, looking good...

Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. The assembly could have been easier though - I mean, it wasn't too difficult but those three screws holding the x/z axis to the y part are a bit of a pain to get aligned. Also, my x arm seems to be a little higher up on the left side, we'll see whether or not it will affect the prints.

Edit: expect me back when the benchy is done 😉

Still lots of smaller parts that can be printed on a Mini. On the local Masks for Docs group, someone noted that the small "ear saver" prints are much appreciated by medical staff suffering from abrasions behind their ears from prolonged mask use. One hospital directly asked for 50. I'd urge anybody with printing capacity to get on one of the local groups and just ask what you can print at smaller sizes. We've also had a few of the bottom clips fit too snugly. Having spares of those available would might be useful for some of the assembly teams.

As they have a specific sterilization procedure in the hospital, they only want a specific model printed out of ABS. Othervise they are not allowed to use it...

Edit: Also I just received a shipping notice. I'll update the spreadsheet

RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

Here's what I'd be printing if I had a Mini...

Ear savers to relieve pressure on the back of the ears from mask straps that can cause chafing and bleeding when masks must be worn for 12 hour shifts:

Shield bottom supports that can be difficult to fit when printed with a larger nozzle. Extras are useful to those assembling PPE shields. Bonus ear saver thrown in.

There is a network for makers and hospitals in germany, too. Currently there is no high demand for any items in my region, though.

The local hospital was too specific, too. For example the headshields requested had to be printed in a specific ABS from a specific manufacturer which has been quality tested.

It's varied here in the US. Some hospitals -- or at least hospital administrators -- have apparently thrown away contributed printed equipment. Others are begging for anything they can get. I suspect more rigid standards and better preparedness has allowed German hospitals to be more particular. Or somebody's nephew owns a filament company.

Our local group is refusing ABS as there are complaints about skin irritation. The beauty of standards: There are so many of them!

Fun fact: shop.prusa3d.com uses that weird date format in the order page where "01/11/2020" means 11th of January, not October 1st (I already forgot when I ordered it).

Thanks guys for adding order numbers to the spreadsheet! Now I know I shouldn't expect the printer in the observable future 🙁
