However, with the limited capacity in the production due to machine capacity as there are only three 3D printers available which could produce just about 12 pieces of face shields per day, the team of Nalitan and the school solicited for understanding from the different agencies, groups, and individuals requesting for PPEs.

      

“To all my friends out there who keep on contacting me, please understand that we prioritize the front liners especially those who interact with patients infected, suspected, or under monitoring for covid-19. We serve the hospitals first, then health workers, soldiers, police officers, and all others who are the most at risk,” Engr. Nalitan explained via his Facebook account.

The engineer made it clear that the PPEs they are fabricating are not for sale and that their whole effort is part of Philippine Science High School systemwide outreach activity called “Pisayuda: Syensya Para sa Bayan” under the leadership of Executive Director Lilia Habacon.    

So far, the first ship out and delivery of 15 face shield sets was done last March 29, 2019 to Malagos Quarantine Facility in Calinan District, Davao City and more were set to be distributed in the next few days.

“We extend our thanks to all the donors (parents, alumni, students, personnel, concerned individuals) for providing us with the raw materials and for our food and daily sustenance. We thank also the janitors of the campus and the PSHS-SMC faculty and staff for their support and for PSHS System Executive Director Lilia Habacon and Campus Director Delia Legaspino for constantly checking on us and addressing our concerns,” the SMC PPE production team leader expressed.

 Engineer Nalitan emphasized to his team and to everyone that they only just began. He is calling for more donations particularly for the following:

  1. PVC acetate sheets
  2. Filament 3mm, ABS, for Lulzbot Taz 6 3D printer
  3. Filament 1.7mm, ABS for anycubic i3 Mega 3D
    printer
  4. 888 adhesive w/ fine tip nozzle

For anyone interested to support this outreach project, you may deposit to Sterling Bank of Asia, 580-6-000178-05 Philippine Science High School – SMC Alumni Association but the Pisay-SMC PPE Fabrication Team specifically requested and preferred for donation of actual materials as was mentioned above.
