Hey folks, thought I’d post an update on what we’re working on. We were asked to 3D print protective face shields on Saturday, March 21 2020.
We were inspired by the
protective face shield design from Prusa Research. We redesigned the parts using Autodesk Fusion 360 and made them parametric so we can easily adjust thickness, height, etc. VIDEO
Check out our
Layer by Layer tutorial to see how we designed it.
The RC1 design takes about 2hr 14min. RC2 takes about 2hr 52min and the bottom holder takes 59min.
We redesigned the bottom holder so it’s longer and able to grab onto the sheet more effectively.
We didn’t have any sheets of clear PETG plastic so we used transparency film. We used our CriCut vinyl cutter to cut out the shield using
the PDF template from Prusa Research.
We’re taking the proper precautions to sanitize the parts before shipping them out.
