Presented by Tristan Hallum at the 92nd Annual Mosquito and Vector Control Association of California (MVCAC) Conference in Monterey, CA.
A 3D printing program enables organizations to fabricate parts and produce custom tools out of affordable materials, re-defining problem solving from finding a tool to fit a goal to examining the goal and developing a tool around those objectives. At the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District a 3D printer program was established in January of 2023 following a predesignated structure to ensure its success. In that process, required resources were identified to establish the program and additional needs were planned for to secure its development. While the program is still in development, preliminary prints are already in use around the district with future projects being designed. It is the District’s goal to house a fully functional 3D printer program that benefits the vector control community and reinforces our district mission.
