Fayetteville locals use 3D printer to make face shields 

FAYETTEVILLE, WV (WOAY) – A local Fayetteville man and other members of the community are putting their 3D printers to good use by making face shields.

Geoff Tiny Elliott said in less than a week several healthcare facilities across Southern West Virginia have requested over hundreds of face shields. Elliot and a group of locals who own 3D printers have set a goal for $5,000 which would allow them to print over 5,000 face shields.

“The need is so great for medical supplies when I first contacted the health department I didn’t even get to finish my sentence before they said 160 and that was 10 days ago,” Elliott said.
