PPE Print Hours

To date I have spent over 1000 hours of just fab time printing PPE for essential workers in our area provided at material cost

My story

My name is Ahleia Brown and I was born and raised in South Lake Tahoe, CA. I’ve spent my entire life living in the Sierra Nevada’s and I love this area. 

Dreaming In Print started with the COVID19 Pandemic in April 2020 where I used my Prusa to make Face Shields, N95 Respirators and Ear Savers for the essential workers outside the healthcare industry who couldn’t get ready access at a reasonable price to PPE.

It was then when my love for Additive Manufacturing was born and I want to provide those capabilities to our local business, industries and community.

My Shop Supervisor

Meet Darwin, she is a year old Norwegian Forest Cat and loves to supervise the work being done in the stop (when I’m not doing Resin work). She personally inspects most prints, maybe yours. Don’t worry though, all prints are wiped down and cleaned before shipping or delivery.
