Commented on Protective Visor by 3DVerkstan about 2 years ago
Hi, I am printing your face shields in France for healthcare employees. I would very much like to know if you have had any feedback from any healthcare service regarding the disinfection processes that may be used with these 3D printed shields, and the endurance of these shields to repeated sterilization. I am particularly interested in results with PLA as the printing material. Thank you in advance !

If any of you is looking for stacked versions to print overnight or just print more with less human input, I successfully used these stacks: https://retrolabs.com/3d-prints/3d-printed-face-shield-with-10-mil-pvc I've made more than 40 of the x10 stacks so far (see my reports on printing them with a Wibox 2 or Dagoma DiscoEasy 200 just below), almost no issues, printing at the upper limit of my PLA temperature.I usually need to use a putty knife to separate them by applying force parallel to the separation layers to break it, but that is quite easy, and the surface is quite clean after separation. I found that the Gcode generated by Ultimaker Cura results in tougher separation layers as compared to the ones obtained with Gcode generated by the Dagoma version of Cura. I also found that the closed version of the visor is sturdier and stacks better than the open one.

Printed on:
Dagoma DiscoEasy 200
Result:
Very good prints with stacks of 10 and eSun PLA+ filament. Temperature of 220°C, layers of 0.2mm, 33% infill, speed at 200%. Roughly 7h for a stack of 10. The pieces are separated using a trowel (see image) and a glove to avoid cuts. Each separated piece is strong, but the surface quality is slightly worse than with the Wibox 2.
Feedback:
(see my previous comment on the printing with a Witbox 2); Great job for the model !

Result:
Perfect print with stacks of 10. Settings are: PLA from BQ, 220°C, 0.4mm layer height, 30% infill.The separated visors are strong and the surface quality is very good. Print time is around 7 hours for 10 stacked pieces. Also printed it almost equally well on a Dagoma DiscoEasy200. The combination of the two allows me to produce 40 to 60 pieces a day.
Feedback:
Maybe a version with a bigger frontend to accommodate people with long nose could be useful ! Nice job, the design is very compact, and does not require any elastic.
