The world is currently battling a severe and dangerous virus, and this has prompted brands and accessory makers to rise to the occasion and does their bit to help users take a step towards protecting themselves from the transmission.
One of the UAEs leading 3D printing companies has developed an anti-viral and anti-bacterial smartphone case known as CliniCase. Coming just 2 weeks after Major Dr. Rashid Al Ghafri of Dubai police, called smartphones potentially the “Trojan horse” of the global pandemic. The 3D printed smartphone cases are printed with a Nano-copper material that is FDA, ISO, and EU Commission approved.
“We have been working with this material for some time and wanted to see how we could get this to the masses in a time of need,” said Co-founder Dominic Wright.
This project is a real milestone for the 3D printing and manufacturing industry in the UAE with everything being designed and manufactured in Generation 3D’s Dubai HQ. This is one of the first true consumer products that are 3D printed globally. The cases are made to order in the Generation 3Ds print farm in Dubai and delivered within 3 days. Generation 3D will be working globally through localized manufacturing hubs and also have a facility and print farm in the UK that will be dedicated to delivering CliniCase to the EU market.
“We have been completely overwhelmed by the consumer reaction as well as the amount of interest from the retail market. We will be on shelves very shortly and the online orders have been fantastic” Co-Founder Dominic Wright remarked.
CliniCase is available on Amazon and at www.generation3d.ae and will be available at all major retailers shortly.
