PPE Production Support Instructions

Firstly, thanks for helping us continue to make more PPE for the NHS, carers and front-line workers during these unprecedented times.

Monetary donations

Any donations of funds should be directed to Southampton Makerspace:

Sort Code: 20-79-29

Account: 3353 4065

Payment reference: PPE4NHS

Alternatively we have a paypal: [email protected]

Materials donations

We are mostly running out of filament to feed our hungry 3D printers. We need:

2.85 mm or 3.0 mm PLA (PolyLactic Acid) on 1 Kg reels [PREFERRED!]

This should be any plain colour (e.g. black, fluorescent green) and not ‘thermoreactive’ or containing weird materials, as these take us too much time to dial-in the machines and impact output.

1.75 mm PLA on 1 Kg reels.

Current suppliers (in order of preference):

If in doubt about an order, get in touch with me [email protected]


Currently Southampton Makerspace is closed, so deliveries are not reliable. We are currently using my home to collate deliveries, and I will deliver to the Makerspace when they need more materials.

Thanks for your support 🙂
