3D printers to the rescue

Kevin Mardirossian has used his 3D printers to make a lot of things …. The mechanical engineering student at UC Irvine spent his spring break printing dozens of frames for face shields then teamed up with a Ventura man who produced the shields’ visors from clear plastic sheets. This month, the Conejo Valley native and his partner donated 70 face shields to the Ventura County Department of Public Health …. Because he’s lucky enough to own his own 3D printers, he felt obligated to use them for good, Mardirossian said. “I have the means to help people,” he said. “I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.”
