The Best 3D Printed Face Shield

Short Print Time. Simple. No cutting holes, no fancy parts.

Tourniquet controls tension in the back. Mylar slides into the top groove securely, and can slide out to be cleaned.  I'm an ER doctor & mechanical engineer and I tried over 40 designs put out there; this was the best of all the greatest features.
