Educators, Students Join the 3DEXPERIENCE Open COVID19 Community

The COVID19 virus may have disrupted your classroom education.  But now researchers, educators and students can be part of a global community of designers,  engineers, and volunteers that join together to fight the virus.

The Open COVID19 community is a free, open and online community that brings together ideas from around the world all in one place.  This community uses on the Dassault Systemes 3DEXPERIENCE platform to disseminate information, share ideas, comment, and collaborate.

For example, there are face shield designs being 3D Printed and assembled in the Czech Republic, Spain, United States and more.  Who needs a face shield?  How do the design parameters affect the health care professional? What materials can be sterilized? How can 3D Printing or Laser cutting improve speed in delivery of 1000’s of face shields?  These questions and many more can be found in the Open COVID19 community.

If you are a student, review the posts on the Open COVID19 communit.  You can add a comment or like an idea.  Educators and researchers we need your ideas and comments too.  Through the 3DEXPERIENCE collective intelligence technology, we can fight the virus together.
