    With the current state of events there is a huge shortage in medical supplies and users all over the world are coming together to help supply much needed items. As 3D printers have become a tool in many homes, users are 3D printing masks and face shield to supply their local hospital.

    I love 3D printing but is not the tool for every type of situation, specially when time is of the essence. So i went ahead and downloaded the face shield design from 3DVerkstan and printed it on my CNC made 3D printer and it took 50 minutes to finish. Yes probably super fast printers could reduce this time much less.

    Then I took the profile and made the necessary changes to it so I could use my CNC router to make it. Hold and behold, it took less than a minute to make this version using 3mm Polycarbotane. This is much stronger and those allow for flex.

    Bellow you will find the file to make this one and a version for anyone to try it with a proper material on a laser.

      I don't see a way to do that ( all saving options are the same ), I think you will need to start from the DXF and just apply a 2D profile cut. Unless you know a different way

      Contact your local maker group and medical facilities to see if they need help with this, that would be a great way to start

    Your design files have errors - one of the ends of the earpiece is not closed and the two tags on the front cut off.

      Thanks for the heads up.

    Do you have a face shield design file? The one I downloaded doesn't match your headband.
    1. Ariel Yahni
      If you have a corrected version send it to me to post it here for others

    Can you use this file in Rhino only or can it be modified to be used in other software?
    1. Ariel Yahni
      DXF can be opened in Rhino
