In Stéphane Galtayries' pavilion, the 3D printer is now running at full speed. This technology teacher, domiciled in Epône (Yvelines) and teacher at the Jules-Richard private high school in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, launches his personal machine in the morning and “prints” plastic visors all day.

At the same time, Lucien Delmer, Alexandre Quenouille and Pablo Ferrari, the three other techno teachers of the Parisian establishment, are also running 3D printers in their respective homes ... to always get more visors. This equipment to protect against the spread of covid19 - also called “face shields” - is then given free of charge to caregivers or professionals obliged to be in contact with the public.

And to create essential equipment in the fight against the pandemic. "These visors, similar to welding masks but translucent, allow in particular to limit the reflex gestures of touching the face," insists the director.

Home workshops

However, there is no question of using the 30 3D printers and laser cutting machines in the school premises… completely closed to the public since March 13. "The teachers all took a few machines from the trunk and transferred their workshop to their homes," said the director of the school. “They have already produced a hundred visors… while continuing to provide their courses at a distance.

“We don't let go of our students,” corrects Stéphane Galtayries, who teaches in BTS class… and who has planned to provide an online course this Thursday and Friday for students deprived of practical work, perhaps up to at the end of the year. "But during the lessons, the 3D printer will continue to run," says the teacher, emphasizing the somewhat artisanal nature of the production chain that he has set up with his colleagues.

Handcrafted

“I have a personal 3D printer. My colleagues use those from high school. But for the raw material (headband, elastics and plastic rollers) we manage. I bought it on Amazon and I had it delivered to my home, ”smiles the“ maker ”(3D printer), specifying that the distribution channel for made-up visors is less artisanal.

The techno teacher gave some to his neighbor, a nurse in a clinic in Yvelines. Others are recovered by a professor of his acquaintance who works at Mantes hospital. Others are “collected” by the 3D4care network (translate “3D for care”), a consortium of students, doctors, technicians, engineers, researchers, the universities of Paris and Sorbonne-Paris Nord with which the Jules-Richard technical high school is associated.

Wearing a mask will be even more strongly encouraged, while joggers will no longer be allowed to go out during the day, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

This organization, whose website ( 3d4care.com ) offers manufacturing plans and health instructions for creating these products for medical use, has set itself the goal of federating "makers" who wish to contribute to the fight against the pandemic. This networking thus makes it possible to compensate for the modesty of individual productions.

"With a 3D printer, it takes 2 to 3 hours to take out a visor," recalls the techno teacher "maker". “On an industrial plastics production chain, it takes… 2 to 3 seconds! ", He adds immediately.

The Pierre-Gilles-de-Gennes high school (13th century) will produce hydroalcoholic gel

The technology teachers at the Jules-Richard high school are not the only ones to engage in the fight against the spread of the pandemic. Some of their colleagues from the national school of physical chemistry and biology in Paris - Pierre-Gilles-de-Gennes high school (13th century) will find their way back to the classrooms to make ... liters of hydroalcoholic solution.

Production will be carried out by attached laboratory teachers and voluntary technicians from the public high school. The disinfectant (at least 500 liters to begin with) will be given to Pitié-Salpêtrière as well as to municipal officials in the 13th arrondissement.
