Got really helpful FDA guidance yesterday for the covid project I've been working on. I think they'll greenlight it by week's end with a little luck.

Some friends of mine have also been speaking fairly highly of the FDA lately. Mostly with regards to 3D printing materials (face-shields, replacement parts, etc) being allowed into medical settings. They've been saying that in normal circumstances, some of these processes could've taken months or years. There is something to be said for safety and process, but I'm glad the maker-community mindset of rapid prototyping is playing nicely with the FDA for a change (and in such trying times nonetheless)!
