(Archive) V 2.0 Design
Version 2 uses extruded features on the headband as the attachment point for the transparent shield. This feature provides a secure fit while also being removable. Instructions on how to make this design are given below, and can also be found at:
3 Part Design
3D Printed Headband
Flexible Top Insert
V 2.0 Headband
PLA or PETG Filament (any color)
Download the STL File
Load your STL into your slicing application. We recommend using Cura.
Configure your 3D printer settings. We recommend the following settings:
Layer Height: 0.3 mm
Layer Speed: 80 mm/sec
Wall Thickness: 1.5 mm
Z-seam alignment: sharpest corner IMPORTANT
Infill: 0% (Change this based on your printer needs)
Print your face shield! If you are using a standard 0.4 mm nozzle, the print should take approximately 2 hours. However, if you update the nozzle to a 0.8 mm nozzle the print will only take about 1 hour.
V 2.0 - Top Insert
any 0.01 inch thickness material (preferably not transparent -- save that for the shields)
If you have a CNC Machine, or another kind of cutting machine, download the SVG of the top insert below
Alternative Step 1
You can also 3D print or cut out the template for the top insert, and cut the inserts by hand using the template.
V 2.0 - Transparent Shield
9x11 inch, 0.01 inch thickness, transparent flexible material (preferably PET)
If you have access to a 2D or higher CNC machine, waterjet machine, or laser cutter, download the batch file for cutting. The designs for a single transparent shield is also available in the ZIP folder.
If you don't have access to a laser cutter, you could also cut the shields by hand, or you can donate the material to us and we can machine cut the shields.
