need help with covid-19 fase shields

Gabor from Bayview

Hi All,

I am currently 3d printing face shields for hospital/healthcare workers. I was able to source all materials and using my own filament to make the frames but I couldn't find elastics. Ideally I'd need buttonhole elastics for easy application (but any would do really) and removal and each shield requires 30-33cm of elastic to be adjustable and go over other PPE.

If you know where I can purchase several meters of the thing (width doesn't matter at this point) please let me know as it's out of stock in the stores or the stores don't operate, or you have some and willing to donate I'd be truly grateful. Unfortunately ordering it from overseas is not an option at the moment.

more info on the shields: www.prusaprinters.org...

Thanks in advance,
