On the MAKERS page, you will find everything you need to apply and get started (in a responsible way)!
We work with a step-by-step plan that is as simple as possible, explaining what you can make and how. After registration you will have access to an (anonymised) regional overview, showing you which requests have come in, in your area. You can then choose which one you want to take on.
Do you also want to contribute ideas, design, research other personal protective equipment, help coordinate supply and demand in your region, share knowledge of 3D-Printing, get help or just be part of a wonderful community? Then please tell us in the registration form. You will then be invited to the MAKERS4ALL Community Discord (a communication platform).
