A PHS teacher is using 3D printers to support NHS workers

A Prestatyn High School teacher is using 3D printers to make personal protection equipment visors in support of our frontline NHS workers.

Dan Nuttall, Subject Leader of Product Design at Prestatyn High School, has used the school's 3D printers at work to make specialist visors for NHS staff.

Mr Nuttall used industry standard design specifications to develop the visors.


Mr Nuttall said: “It is great to be in a position to support the NHS and help their fight against Covid-19.
The NHS is very close to my heart as my wife works as a district nurse in the community, It  was just nice to help, even in a small way”.


Using a small team of volunteers and donations from community business partners the PHS team have now made over 650 units.


Headmaster Neil Foley said: “Amazing work! A special thanks to Dan Nuttall, the technology department and all the volunteers for designing and producing the visors that are out in healthcare settings.”


The school and Mr Nuttall would like to thank all of the teaching and support staff that volunteered throughout the process.

Thank you to Gwasg Helygain for the kind donation of the acetate stock. http://www.gwasg.com/
