Beaumont and Henry Ford Hospitals in Detroit each received 100 3D printed parts in an effort to repeat the success of a Northwell NY hospital to adapt BiPAP/CPAP machines to work more like ventilators for COVID-19 patients. The Detroit hospitals will conduct independent evaluations of the parts and determine if any design changes are needed.
Novastar Solutions of Livonia MI printed the 3D thermo-plastic parts on their HP 4200 3D printer. The parts are air-tight and can be sanitized. HP contacted Novastar requesting their assistance and provided the computer file used to print the parts.
Novastar Solutions is an HP Inc. partner selling and servicing HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printers. Novastar’s Livonia, MI demonstration center houses three HP 3D Printers. Other Novastar efforts to join in the COVID-19 fight included 3D printing face shield frames (PPE) and medical mask adjusters using open source design files available on HP’s 3D printer website.
April 29 Novastar shipped 150 face shields to Pomeroy Living to distribute to healthcare workers at four assisted living facilities in Southeast Michigan.
MAGNET – a northern Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partner – contacted Novastar and requested 3D printing of a set of 12 prototype parts for a ventilator being developed by the University of Illinois. The ventilator is needed by hospitals in the Cleveland area.
An internist in the Ascension and Beaumont health systems in the Detroit area requested Novastar 3D print an adapter that allows one to connect a filter to a full-face snorkel mask for protection from corona virus.
Novastar donated time on the 3D printers, materials and their engineering and operation teams to meet the requests. Novastar’s CEO David Baumgarten says “I can’t hold my guys back at our 3D printing center – they get any requests for anything like this, they’re printing parts. We’re all excited to help and maybe save some lives.”
Hospitals are looking for ways to get the most out of the ventilators they do have on hand.
NovaStar Solutions, located on Plymouth Road in Livonia, sells 3D printers and converted its demonstration lab into a place to make ventilator parts. [Read more…] about ‘We’re all excited to help’ — Livonia tech company building parts for Metro Detroit hospitals

Presentation on Expanded Materials for HP3D | November 21st, 2019 | 10:00am

LIVONIA, MI NOVEMBER 4
Join Novastar for our final Open House of 2019 featuring a special presentation by Extol about 3D printing with Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) and Polypropylene (PP). Extol will also feature fastening processes utilized to make assemblies from parts 3D printed in these new materials.
TPU is the latest material to be released for HP 3D printers. The soft and flexible nature of TPU opens a new world of possibilities for energy absorption, bellows, ducts, seals, wearable components, and much more. Polypropylene is in development for additive manufacturing in HP 3D printers. It is a durable, low-cost material with chemical resistance. The HP MJF fusion process also ensures the parts are water-tight like their nylon counterparts.
The event will begin at 10:00am with coffee & snacks. Lunch will be served at noon during the special presentation. There will be ample opportunity to spend one-on-one time with additive manufacturing specialists, see parts being printed in real-time, and examine hundreds of demonstration parts and special applications. You are welcome to invite guests but please have them register independently so we have an accurate head count for lunch.
