Issue Cricut Machine File (to cut holes and corners of transparency paper)? Other options? #15

Quetzalita opened this issue on April 12, 2020 06:22

Hi,

Thank you again for all the technical knowledge and problem solving you are doing to help our 3D community.

I had heard that the cricut machine (https://cricut.com/en_us/cricut-explore-family) can be used (if you don't have a laser cutter) to cut the holes and corners of transparency paper very easily. If you come across the cricut file for your North America 6 hole file, could you please post it? Or if there are other good ways to trim the transparency paper corners (without a laser cutter), please share.

I am considering using the Cricut tool for the transparency paper since one set of face shields I printed will go to folks at a smaller urgent care clinic that don't have a laser cutter.

    Use your Cricut or Silhouette Cameo cutting machine to cut face shields quickly.

    There is a link to a live video to show how to use a 3D printer to print the 3DVerkstan visor portion of the mask below.

    These svg and studio files in this zip file are for cutting the face shield portion of the protective mask. The original was made by Joel Telling. His file is made for a 3 hole punch, so I revised to make them snug, but easy to snap onto the visor since we are cutting the holes with a cutting machine.

    I am also providing a pdf file for those of you who don’t have a cutting machine and want to cut them by hand and use a 3 hole punch. Choose print at 100% on your print screen. It may cut off a portion, but it needs to be printed at 100%.
