Commented on Verkstan Face Shield North American 6 Hole Fixed about 1 year ago
Hi Vlad, Apparently I used the wrong model. There are way too many versions floating around and frankly confusingly named. The model that I, and a huge number of other makers in the area have been printing, is what you apparently call the "A4" which has the 1" spacing, but all our sheets are cut to the 8.5 x 11 size, which is the US standard. It's no wonder folks are confused. The US version should be called "US Six Hole 1" Pin Spacing". No ambiguity, and the sheet size is not relevant. Just a matter of setting the holes from the edge appropriately. Assuming the pegs have been reduced from the original 8mm size to something compatible to the standard US punch diameter, 9/32", then the model would be ideal for the vast majority of US makers. I will look at the A4 model. Thanks!

The US version is partially fixed and partially broken. The pins - tabs are now smaller and 1/4" from flat to flat, (not sure why they are square in cross section instead of at least partially rounded). Adding a few fillets eases that issue which is easy enough to do. (Thanks for making the SW file). The "broken" part is that the tab to tab centers are not 1", but rather 21mm. Changing the centers dimension to a new number raises havoc with the folks making the shield sheets.
