Planit Canada creates plans for COVID box.

Planit Canada is doing its part to answer the call to help protect health care workers as they fight to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
As manufacturers are answering the call for help by dedicating their machines and manufacturing facilities to construct personal protective equipment that will help stop the spread of the coronavirus, many are navigating unchartered waters.
Doing its part, Planit Canada has created plans for the COVID box, or intubation box, which is designed, built, tested and distributed to Canadian hospitals by a Toronto-based team of volunteer physicians and engineers.
The CAD drawings and parts list is available on their website: www.covidbox.org
Planit Canada Senior Software Specialist, Christopher Manclière, created the box in Cabinet Vision and is giving them to any manufacturer interested in making it.
If you have a CNC Router and can get a ¼ tool to cut acrylic (polycarbonate), then you can start building these flat-packed boxes.
However, Planit Canada also cautioned manufacturers against getting stuck with product they can't move.
“Please ensure you've gone through the correct channels before producing any personal protective equipment for medical workers. If you aren’t sure where to turn, our industry associations are hard at work collecting and sharing relevant and up-to-the-minute information and can help direct you to provincial and federal resources.”
Planit’s senior software specialist also wrote a blog, 9 tips for cutting acrylic using CABINET VISION.
