Montana Mask

Description

The BE Mask v1.3.3 (Buffalo e-NABLE Mask) is a derivative of the original Montana Mask. This derivative work focused on design changes to improve fit for a variety of individuals and to improve sealing of the mask and face (i.e. minimize leakage).

Update 4/9/2020: Adjusted scaling to allow for 2 pieces of filter material, as recommended based on preliminary testing results.

Update 5/12/2020: Updated to v1.3.0, including a number of changes:

  • All models have been recreated from scratch as solid-body models (v1.0 was based on modified mesh files)
  • Consolidated to three sizes (small, medium and large)
  • Thicker protective grid on front of mask
  • Added fillets to protective grid for improved printing
  • Redesigned strap connectors for cleaner printing
  • Made mask walls slightly thinner for improved flexibility
  • Version number included on mask body interior
  • Sizing indicator (“S”, “M”, “L”) included on both mask body and filter frame insert

Update 5/15/2020: Updated to v1.3.1, including the following changes:
* Minor adjustments to sizing based upon latest facial analysis results from Buffalo / e-NABLE team

Update 5/18/2020: Updated to v1.3.2, including the following changes:
* Sizing adjustments to sizing based upon user feedback

Update 5/28/2020: Updated to v1.3.3, including the following changes:
* Adjusted the position of the strap connectors so the elastic doesn’t end up so close to the eyes when wearing the mask
* Enlarged the filter housing in the mask slightly so the filter frame isn’t quite as tight
