31 using clothcloth from cotten cloth, woven fabric, T-shirtsThere are 2 prototypes of the Co-MASK, featuring a kiss and a smile. The masks come in 3 sizes (also for kids), using 3 layers of fabric available at home: kitchen cotton cloth, non-woven fabric, and an old T-Shirt. They are washable, have a nose clip, and a possibility to insert a replaceable filter. The mask cannot fully prevent the infection, but it can filter a significant amount of viruses+bacteria, so better than nothing. The idea is to make them available for free, through an online ordering system and a no-contact pick up. In addition, DIY instructions for replication would be made available for everyone with a sewing machine willing to multiply the effort.

Face Shield

Can be made into a mask by using bottom shoelace
Absolutely minimal 5-minute face shield mask

- quality: DIY
- easy to disinfect (eg. isopropyl alcohol)
- protects eyes
- soft
- protects face sides
- cheap
- easy to make
- easy breathing
- accommodates glasses
- no 3D printing, no tools except scissors
Clear plastic (bag or sheet), fabric (shoelaces)A DIY alternative if nothing else is available. The principle can easily be built upon. Eg. by using a slightly thicker plastic that is still easy to bend.


- Clear plastic sheet
 (must be transparent, translucent is not enough)
- Shoelaces

- Scissors

- Tape (to make holes in the plastic more durable)

58 specs for a face mask for "non-clinical use" being circulated to factories and designers in Los Angeles by L.A. Protects, an intiative coordinated designer fashion brand Kaiser Permante
- Specs specifically state to avoid use of latex
- any non-latex fabric- comments on design could have a wide impact, as already has been published by a garment manufacturer and is being disseminated through the fashion industry in the US
- concerned that the design specifications do not give consideration of material other avoiding latex, and hence pore size may be too large
- Mask should be sterilized before use, but no indication given of how to sterilize (e.g. whether to use alcohol/U.V./steam/other)
Added by Artur Donaldson,, design by L.A. Protects probably led by
This design is intended to: 1) Use transparency sheets or rigid sheets depending on what's
available. 2) Not need any precise holes made in the sheets 3) BE
STACKABLE, so that someone with 1 printer can get 4 or 5 shields done
overnight without having to wake up. (Separate the stack using a knife
or wire cutters) 4) Print reasonably well even on an old printer (Solidoodle 2012).
PLA, Office Depot transparent sheet covers or similarThis is useful for where only a few printers are available. Queue up a stack to print overnight, and GET SOME REST! Robots Everywhere LLC

quick to make disposable mask from vacuum cleaner bag

- Paper is easy and fast to work with (5 minute build)
- Low-cost tools, no professional machines needed
- The template is easy to print on paper or acrylic
- The design fits onto a single A4 size sheet of paper
- Close skin to paper seal/vacuum (video demo's in link)
- DIY Alternative for surgical masks shortage
- It’s foldable, easy and compact to stack, carry, send
Paper / Coated paper /Acrylic sheets/non wovensAn alternative for surgical masks. This concept is designed to be disposable for short usage. Because this face mask is based on paper as a base material, it's not wearable for a longer period (30 minutes max?) because breath will weaken the paper over time. Acrylic/plastic alternatives are possible. Jean-Paul Leconte
64 Facepiece

- This Filtering Facepiece has three components. The outer cover can be fixed separately and can be detached when there's a requirement of changing the filter.

- The filter we have decided as cotton fabric which is being used in manufacturing Vests and there can be an additional layer of Activated Charcoal. It is basically 3D printed with PLA but for large scale production we can mould and produce as per the demand.
PLATo prepare one mask using 3D print can take 1hr. But for bulk requirement, it can be moulded and we can produce 10 pcs per minuteRanajay Kar
65« Spiralize outer contour  » type of mask
Liscence CC0 - Colaborative Project - Groupe Entraide Maker - COVID19

Easy to make, Biocompatible, Breathable
Soft printing due to Cura’s Spiralize outer contour mode which enables production of thin layers that are fast to print.
All parts can be printed in 2H30 on a U20* printer.
Considering this length of time, it is possible to make a single-use mask (otherwise it is possible to reuse after dismantlement)
Expected filter performance above 94% of 0,6µ particles (FFP2) (Filtration E12 or H13, so 99,5 or 99,7% at 0,3 µ)
Breathable (expected respiratory resistance below 0,7mbar at 30L per mn ; 2,4mbar at
95L/Min and 3,6 mbar at 160L/Min)
Considering the great size ofthe filter, it is possible to use less breathable materials vs on a simple fabric mask ; if this one is for a general public use.
Organic materials compatible (PLA in contact with skin ; TPU and mastic classed A+ without skin contact)
Reusable partially (filter must not be reused)
General use materials (Veficle Cabin air filtre E12 or H13), PLA,TPU
l parts can be dismantled, very practical and easy for cleaning and disinfection process

Exterior shell design can be custom fit for a secure air cavity, even air flow distribution, breathability, and comfortability. Features include adjustable metal nose piece, two cotton ties and a dual suspension (grey) elastic band with adjustable options to secure a tight facial air cavity and headpiece. Metal brackets for dual suspension allows for elastic to be easily adjusted and replaced after wear or breakdown. Optional: non latex band. Sterilzied / reusable. 2.) Interior disposable filter includes: 2 layers of interface exterior and 9 layers polypropylene exterior (1% UV additive). Each layer has been treated with an iodized salt process based on academic study.
Overall, the masks large sealed air cavity reduces air pressure of fine particle intake (volume=force). Product pending efficacy testing via certified lab. In home high performance testing was evaluated eg. blow, taste, smell and breathability during the design phases of the exterior and interior products. *Glasses do not fog.
