    That's top notch. I saw that 3D printing was used to urgently churn out ventilator valves in Italy when the main supplier couldn't meet demand. They are more expensive to produce so won't replace traditional manufacturing (yet) but met demands when speed was of the essence.

    Wow. Just wow.

    That has really cheered me up this evening.

    It is quite awesome to think that so much of our technology is now being turned to fighting this pandemic.

    I read the other day that all the UK based Formula 1 Teams, (which is most of them and who have advanced rapid design and manufacturing systems) are turning over to making ventilators.
    So clever my foot fell off.
