LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT RIST3D DOES
RIST3D is a group of 3D printing enthusiasts that first joined together during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our original goal was to 3D print, assemble, and donate medical visors and any other necessary PPE of which the United States had a grave shortage. Based on a successful grassroots campaign to provide healthcare facilities and the workers within them this essential PPE, RIST3D will remain dedicated to humanitarian work and continue to push forward, using technology to help those in need at whatever capacity we are able.
We are currently committed to donating 100% of the medical visors we produce. All of your donations go directly to cost of materials, distribution, and equipment maintenance.
