Face Shield Visor for Small Bed #3DPrinting #PPE #CoVid19
Over the weekend I designed a face shield visor that can fit on a printer with a build volume of 150mm x 150mm. Most popular face shield designs such as the 3DVerkstan or the Prusa RC3 require a build volume of at least 160mm x 185mm and 191mm x 144mm.
Taking design considerations from several open source designs, the visor is thin and flexible so it fits across the wearers forehead. It supports an 8.5in by 11in 3-hole punch sheet, which can be either PETG or transparency film. Because the frame of the visor is only 1.5mm thin, the majority of the geometry is solid perimeters and doesn’t require much infill. This allow the visor to print in just under an hour, 50 minutes, but could be even quicker with optimized slice settings.
Sophy Wong’s Add-on is used to cover up the gap in the top of the visor. This excellent design attaches to the existing pegs on the visor and features foldable tabs that nicely cover up the gap. I was able to cut the design out using a vinyl cutter.
With proper coverage, the visor has enough clearance for hefty sized safety goggles and a surgical mask.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
