As I posted a few days ago, games companies and businesses are stepping up to the mark and doing their part to join the fight against Covid-19 by turning over their 3D printing facilities to manufacturing PPE for those on the front lines in the fight against this terrible virus.
Shortly after I posted about Army Painter and Pendraken Miniatures doing their part, I received news that our very good friends over at On Table Top (formally Beasts of War) were printing out PPE for local healthcare in Northern Ireland where they are based.
From the Announcement
A lot of businesses are working to try and do their bit for those who need additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). As we’ve got quite the bank of 3D Printers in our studio we have decided to try and work on some PPE Face Mask Add-Ons which make things a little easier on users.
You can see above that this is just a little extension for elastic masks which takes the pressure off the ears. It’s just a little thing but it seems like it’s helping a fair few people!

We’re currently working to print out dozens of these each day FOR FREE and we’ve already supplied a few packs to folks in the Coleraine area of Northern Ireland. However, we’re also working to get these shipped to people in England
Some additional words from Warren on this and for those wanting to help us out with supplies…
“Some folk have asked if they can help us with the costs of 3D printing of bits for the amazing Health workers out there. We are not charging for these and there is absolutely no obligation to help us out – we will find a way!
But we normally pick up our spare parts and materials from amazon, so really the easiest option right now is to chuck us a gift card to firstname.lastname@example.org We can then use that to help us keep the machines repaired and running and topped up with filament etc.
Again I stress, these are tough times for every single one of us, DO NOT feel you have to help, you and yours come first and we will find a way!”
If you know anyone who would benefit from these then just let us know and we’ll do our best to get them out to folks…
I wish to thank Warren, Llyod, Justin, John, and everyone at On Table Top for their upstanding effort during these difficult times and wish you all the very best of luck, stay safe and take care,
