Covid-19 3D printing help offer

With the Covid-19 crisis sweeping the world, we are more than happy to help New Zealand by printing anything needed that will help to cope with the crisis.

We have designed a simple attachment for your door handle that will allow you to open your door handle with your arm instead of your hand. We will print and send you one of these to suit your particular door handle. We just need a few basic measurements to customize the handle to suit your particular door handle. The details we need are as follows:

Handle type 1

L = Length of straight part of handle

D = Diameter of straight part of handle

H = Distance from back edge of handle to door

Handle type 2

L = Length of straight part of handle

W1 = Depth of rectangular part of handle

W1 = Height of rectangular part of handle

H = Distance from back edge of handle to door

Other handle types

 

Email us a picture of the handle with as many of the basic dimensions shown above as possible and we will design something that works.

 

 

 

Email whatever details you can about your door handle, including a picture if it is of an unusual shape, together with your mailing address, to olaf.diegel@auckland.ac.nz and we will design and print your door handle and send it to you.

And, if you know of anything else that we can help with in the fight against Covid-19, don't hesitate to let us know. We have a great design team and industrial production grade 3D printers and other high-tech manufacturing equipment that we will use to help in whatever way we can.
