Abstract
The recent pandemic COVID 19 is taking many nations into its grasp. The medical workers are working as the frontline force in tackling this global epidemic.

The ventilators are also not in abundant numbers to accommodate thousands of patients which is very vital for the survival of the infected. The infected countries are facing this crisis and are adopting means of mass production with less labor involved. Therefore, here an attempt is being made to produce 3D printed medical equipment’s as per requirement. This paper aims at contributing to the production of PPEs, Face masks. Ventilators and ventilator splitters by the use of 3D printing techniques.

Key words: 3D printing, PPE, virus, COVID 19, pandemic
