Team 2537 is producing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers. We are producing several types of face shields including disposable and partially re-usable types. The design files and instructions are below:
Partially reusable face shield:
- Download and print this STL file for the 3D printable headband/Visor
- Cut a 1″-wide by 28″ long strip of one-wrap velcro (from amazon) or fabric; this goes through the belt-loops in the visor to secure it to the head.
- Create a clear plastic face shield using one of the following:
- Standard 8.5″ x 11″ transparency paper (from amazon)
- 16mil vinyl sheet (from Home Depot) cut to 11″ x 10.75″ for a thicker shield
- 20-mil vinyl sheet (from MarineVinylFabric) cut to 11″ x 10.75″ (thickest)
- Use a standard 3-hole punch (amazon: here) to make 3-holes in the 11″ side
A simpler/faster 3D-printable design
This design is really meant to be disposable but can be re-used. It’s not as nice/comfortable, but it works OK, prints much faster and with less material, and does not require the velcro/fabric straps. It also uses a 3-hole punch to create/attach the shield material.
Fully disposable face shield
This is the simplest/fastest and does not require a 3D printer, just scissors.
