Abstract3D Printers are playing a huge role in helping to fight against COVID-19.3D Printing also known as additive manufacturing, refers to processes used to create a three-dimensional object in which layers of material are formed under computer control to create an object. With 3D printing innovation these days, we can easily transform any design into a 3D model. The utilization of 3D Printers in medical fields are growing quickly and are required to reform human services. The corona virus infection-19 has spread all over the world and stances diverse challenges to healthcare offerings. Health care staff rely on Personal Protective Equipment to protect themselves and their patients from infection. Hospitals around the globe are running out of PPE for treating COVID Patients. The constrained accessibility of PPE has impacted many countries ability to react to the emergency. The 3D printing network is ready to overcome this international scarcity. The target of the current work is to examine the 3D printing innovation with regards to a Covid-19 pandemic and to analyze which kind of PPE can be printed utilizing 3D Printers. The beneficial 3D prints for Covid-19 are Face shield mask, Safety goggles, nasal swabs, Ventilators, Oxygen Venturi valves, hands-free door openers, Tweezers, Handy tool for buttons, Respirator mask, 3D Printing pill dispenser, medical devices and surgical tools and so on.
