3D Printing Projects


The frames of these face shield versions require 3D printing as an additional production procedure. Different designs are available that involve little to moderate assembling. Most models can be shipped easily. It does require sourcing of extra materials such as filament and commonly an elastic or rubber band. A few versions use foam or neoprene. 3D printed models take longer to manufacture than cutting only versions. However, the frames may be reused and the shields (plastic sheets) are mostly replaceable.
