COVID-19 crisis has demonstrated the creativity and innovation of our community in using OPEN technologies for distributed design, local manufacture, and real time connection. Web3D Consortium member, NIH is providing helpful resources in this crisis. Check out the creative ways that NIH 3D Print Exchange 3D model sharing platform is helping alleviate our healthcare system and improve treatments: From clinically-reviewed masks, face-shields, and ventilator parts to equipment lab equipment to door openers. The Web3D platform (and Extensible 3D (X3D) specifically) is helping distribute the knowledge and means for better global preparedness and response.

Power in numbers requires Community: each of us bringing our diverse points of view and skills to a common problem. More than ever we are looking to technologies to help us medically, psychologically, and socially.
