COVID-19 PPE

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Ctrl-Z has provided face shields to essential workers in need. Ctrl-Z and its members have used personal equipment to 3D print and CNC route face shields. Partnering with UIUC, we have provided a total of 374 face shields to over 20 organizations/businesses. We are able to print 3 different face shield designs, whose links are listed below. If you or a group you know are in need of face shields, please contact Ctrl-Z - contact@team4096.org
