This App Can Generate A Perfectly Fit Seal For Face Masks

When wearing face masks to prevent the Coronavirus from spreading, you need something that fits you, not just a piece of cloth to cover your face

Most face masks on the market belong to the one-size-fit-all category and sometimes they cannot provide a perfect seal to protect you from droplets.

If most masks are too big for you, the Bellus3D FaceApp can help. This iOS app scans your face and generates a plastic frame perfectly contour your features.

The main reason why Bellus3D FaceApp is on iOS only is that it relies on recent Apple’s smartphones’ TrueDepth sensor to scan users’ faces. This makes iPad Pro, iPhone X, and iPhone 11 the only legible devices for the app.

The app was originally designed for 3D facial scans for games and some other purposes. However, when the need for face masks with perfect seals skyrockets as a result of COVID-19, the app’s developers added Mask Fitter function to make it more relevant to the current situation.

What the app does is to generate a plastic frame fitted to your face’s unique features. The function has been reviewed and approved by the National Institute of Health to be used in medical settings.

When wearing face masks to prevent the Coronavirus from spreading, you need something that fits you, not just a piece of cloth to cover your face. Of all the types of masks available right now, N95 provides the best fit but they are reserved for medical staff who need them the most right now.

Using Bellus3D FaceApp to make a plastic frame contoured to your face’s dimension offers you something pretty similar to wearing an N95.

The app can only generate the design so the next step for you is to print it out using a 3D printer. If you don’t have one, there are services for the job. All you need to do is to send them the design and have it printed out with a small amount of fee.

The frame design comes with hooks so you can attach a string or a chain to it to hold it on your face.
