As Hawaii confronts a global pandemic, Oahu dentist Dr. Eric Muraoka is spending every moment he can spare in his 3-D printing lab designing and printing personal protective equipment. Muraoka is focused on using his four printers to produce hundreds of clear plastic face shields that can clip on to plastic visors that are FDA-compliant. He produced 300 face shields Thursday and sent them on their way — free of charge.  [photo courtesy: Eric Muraoka via Civil Beat]
