Become A Volunteer

The 3D Crowd community is open to anyone who is interested in 3D printing at all levels and helping others, not just the 8,000+ volunteers who made 200,000 face shields.

Ask For Our Help

Do you have a project large or small that would require a team of 3D printers to make items that would help to change lives?  Please get in touch with our projects team. 

Our Current Projects

We support projects in various ways. These can supported by our own fund raising, directly by the makers or paid for by the charity/organisation. 

Why work with Us?

Our mission is to help to make a real difference both locally in the UK and globally.

Many care homes are struggling financially as a result of the pandemic. Many are struggling to balance PPE needs with costs

Project Babel - Disaster Relief

We are in the early days of building an online library of tested 3D printable designs to assist makers in or near areas of crisis to react faster.

3D Crowd is built on three core pillars

3D PRINTING – COMMUNITY – EDUCTION.

3D Printing

Our volunteers come from all walks of life and a variety of skill levels. Each project is run by an experienced project lead to manage our distributed manufacturing process.

Community

Our community is what defines us and motivates us to do more and do it better. Without our community, we never would have been able to distribute 200,000 face shields.

Education

We look to provide devolved education for community members by our members but also provide video and face to face education for STEM and BAME causes across the UK.

OUR ACTIONS
