Coronavirus Lodève: two college students manufacture protective visors with their 3D printers for the gendarmes

Arthur Leclerc asked for a 3D printer as a gift at Christmas last year.

Since then, it has been used to make small objects, “Skulls, stuff”, as he explains from the age of 12.
He regularly goes to a specialized site which provides free manufacturing programs, 3D maker, to pick up ideas.

It was there that he found a process for making the headbands that hold the protective visors.

I had heard on television that the visors were missing, so I started.

Arthur produced twenty and with his parents he first distributed to traders in his neighborhood.

Almost child’s play

His friend Killian Thérou had their 3D printer as a birthday present just a month ago. And he started making little figurines.

It was by watching a video on you tube explaining how to make a protective visor that he wanted to get started too.

I remembered that my friend Arthur had sent me a photo of a visor he had just made and I asked him how it was made.

Arthur sent him the model and he too started making these protections.

“It’s a long and laborious job at first, Explain his mother Géraldine, constable. “But when he succeeded, I had the idea of ​​showing the visors to my hierarchy. The head of the Lodève company gave his agreement, to equip the gendarmes in addition to what we already use. “

The visors are easy to clean, around twenty were distributed this Thursday, April 9 in the morning to the gendarmes of Lodève.

The gendarmes of Hérault thanked and congratulated the two boys on social networks, for their “act of solidarity.”

“The manufacturing process is relatively long”, said the gendarmerie, “the two children decided to join forces to double their production capacity.”

Well done and thank you both !! #AllMobilises

The Montpellier Metropolis also produces visors

The City and the Metropolis of Montpellier announced in a press release this Thursday, April 9, the creation of“a local visor manufacturing unit in partnership with Rupture Tech Consulting“.

This local production unit will be able to manufacture up to 1,500 to 2,000 protective visors each week.

Ten 3D printers were purchased and a 120 m2 room was made available free of charge by the Montpellier Mediterranean Metropolis in Cournonsec.

“These personal protective equipment are intended for City officials, as well as officials from the municipalities of the Metropolis, the CCAS and nursing homes, specifies the official press release, “who are in daily contact with the public. Depending on the production capacity and the needs expressed, this allocation could be extended to external structures.”

Throughout Occitania, companies have converted to manufacture protective and disinfecting elements for carers and the public.
