This es an easy to build prototype of a face shield. You need:
- 3D (fdm) Printer
- A4 plastic sheet (e.g. 0.2mm pet foil)
Just print the file, then put holes in the plastic (as in template) and push it through the visor frame. Adjust the frame by heating up (warm water) the PLA frame in the front.
The distance from the top of the hole closer to the side adjusts the distance from the nose (the further down the closer to the nose)

Dies ist eine einfach Version eines Gesichtsschilds. Man braucht:
- 3D Drucker (fdm)
- Din A4 Plastikfolie (Laminier/Coverfolie 0,2mm)
Einfach ausdrucken, dann die Löcher nach Anleitung in die Plastikfolie einbringen und durch den gedruckten Rahmen schieben.
Anpassen des Rahmens an Kopfgröße möglich durch Erwärmen des Rahmens in der Front mit warmem Wasser.
Die Distanz des Loches A (näher am Rand der Folie) von der Oberkante der Folie regelt den Abstand des Visiers von der Nase. (je größer die Distanz desto näher an der Nase)
Den Abstand der Löcher kann man auch weiter nach oben setzen. Die Löcher am besten mit einem Skalpell Cutter als Kreuz einbringen oder mit einem normalen Locher (schwer wg. Abstand der Folie).

Druck aus PLA / print in PLA
0.3 mm layer height
only walls
final->preferred model
stacks-> print with brim (10-15lines)
dicker-> reduced risk of warping/better build adhesion with my printer due to wider bottom

Materials and methods

PLA, plastic sheet A4 (0.2mm)

I printed one of these and it seems to work pretty well. I need to have a clearer picture of where the holes need to be positioned on the transparency sheet. Also what size are the holes?
