IEEE Entrepreneurship Stars Judge Charlotte Craff | Rises to the Challenge of COVID-19
Charlotte Craff, IEEE Entrepreneurship Stars Judge and Community Liaison at re:3D®, is assisting the fight against COVID-19. Craff is leading two significant efforts!
re:3D® is currently working on a personal protective equipment (PPE) campaign – PPE for the People. This effort seeks to provide 3D printed PPE to essential workers from under-served populations in the Houston area as they continue to carry out food, transportation, social and municipal services for our community. Fiscally sponsored by Impact Hub Houston, the campaign will provide 3D printed face shields, ear savers, and other PPE to help protect restaurant and fast food workers, bus and delivery drivers, as well as small businesses that seek to reopen safely, like barbershops and nail salons.

Craff is also recognizing re:3D® customer’s around the world, who are doing their part via producing PPE production.
“As we all face our new normal and adjust to the realities of life during a pandemic, our 3D printing friends and colleagues around the world have stepped up to provide much needed personal protective equipment, filling the supply gap for everyone on the front lines. This isn’t just for doctors and nurses, it’s also for the police, EMTs, grocers, gas station attendants, and every other essential worker who suit up to keep our societies’ services going during this crisis.
More close to home, we couldn’t be more honored to count many of these selfless volunteers as our customers. re:3D®’s social mission to democratize manufacturing and 3D print with purpose tend to attract like-minded individuals and businesses whose first instincts are to be the problem-solvers for their communities. Featured below are our friends’ efforts in their own words.”
