Design: Henneman v1 3D Printed Face Shield (no need for holes/clips/bands)

 

Glasses Style

Pros:

  • No need for elastic band; less parts
  • Extremely lightweight;
  • Easy to assemble/dissasemble; parts can be thrown into a bucket of bleach after each use

Cons:

  • Weight imbalance is far more noticeable when you quickly lean forward quickly; this is ampified by the thickness you use (but you can offset this by shortenin the arms and increasing the curve to the back if your head is a strange shape I suppose)

 

 

VERSION 2:

 

This version will use a slide in function for the mylar; so you do not need to punch any holes; just slide it in and it will "pinch" along the sides. 

Pros:

  • no punching holes; slides in and slides out!
  • by far the easies to produce and wear

In this image I used 4 mil 12x12" mylar -- with holes punched (1/4" hole) at 1.5 inch vertical spacing and as far inwards as a hole punch allows (about 1.5"). Obviously you can punch holes where-ever you please to shape to your face.

I will repost with 6mil (which is probably the minimum thickness I would recommend); I will also repost with 0.04" polycarbonate which is far thicker/heavier

Also; there is no science to this bit; I thought it was amazing that it fit my dog.
