Issue Any chance the model can be adjusted for the Dremel's build area? #1

I'm new to 3D printing, and have access to a Dremel 3D45. Th build area is 255x155x170mm (10x6x6.7in).

The model for the visor is just slightly too big. I scaled it down to fix, and the mylar shield does not stay on the pegs.

You could probably just cut off the pegs length to be a slight bit shorter to fit it in 155mm and still have it work reasonably well.
Easily done in meshmixer with two plane cuts.

I have modified the North American v3 STL to create a split version that can be produced on printers with a smaller build plate.
It should be available soon at

If you need it now you can grab it from

I tried modifying it myself, and it seems to be working, but the build time is a lot higher now, so I did something else than optimal, obviously :p

Anyway — the split version is great! Thank you! I will start working on it ASAP.

Just another small request, if you have time, I could use a split version of the Swedish visor, since I'm die-cutting the face shield and can take advantage of the stability of the additional pegs.

BUT, just this split version is great, I really appreciate it.

Murtaugh, for the Swedish version, you can try my version, which has slightly smaller width and should fit in the Dremel. I am printing those right now on my replicator and they seem to work fine.

I am working on a model with joints (like glasses) that print in place. I have the basic design down but am working on the clearances at the moment. Total print time is about 2 hours with a .4mm nozzle. once i have a successful print i will upload to thingiverse and here. I will update you guys with links here

The print can be rotated about 45 degrees and prints at about 135mm by 125mm both under 5 inches

Here is my V1 of a hinged design. got the clearances figured out for my machine. Im printing with a .4mm and it takes just under 2 hours to print. let me know if it works out for you. Its 2:30AM here so im hitting the sack. Have a good night or probably day for many of you.
