Current Happenings

In light of the coronavirus, the Sonic Squirrels are supporting a local volunteer group in 3D printing parts for NIH-approved personal protective equipment (PPE) for fire, hospitals, airlift companies, and more. The printed parts can be sterilized and reused. The organizers of the group have the clear sheets already and they sterilize the PPE parts that you donate. Anyone in the local area can join their printing campaign by joining their Facebook group.

If you are a Squirrel Family and wish to join this effort, please contact Susan Dole at She will help keep track of your filament use for reimbursement and coordinate pickup of what you print.


Facebook Group Name is “North Seattle/South Snohomish COVID-19 PPE builders group”. Collection and distribution of printed items and medical equipment is local.

The Verkstan 3D Print that the FB Group is using – NIH approved for medical use.

The Sonic Squirrels are also aware that many families are making non-medical masks for personal use or for donation to organizations of all types (grocery, childcare, medical care, front line and essential workers.)
