Face Shields

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:

  • Download and print this STL file for the 3D printable headband/Visor
  • Cut a 1″-wide by 28″ long strip of one-wrap velcro (amazon: here) or fabric (goes through belt-loops in the visor to secure to the head.
  • Create a clear plastic face shield using one of the following:
    • Standard 8.5″ x 11″ transparency paper (amazon: here)
    • 16mil vinyl sheet (Home Depot: here) cut to 11″ x 10.75″ for a thicker shield
    • 20-mil vinyl sheet (MarineFabricSupply: here) 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 3D-printable design
This design is really meant to be disposable although it can be re-used.  It’s not as nice/comfortable, but it works adequately, prints faster, uses less filament, and does not require the velcro/fabric head strap.  It also uses a 3-hole punch to create/attach the shield material.  For details see here.

Fully disposable face shield
This is the simplest/fastest and does not require a 3D printer, the only tools required are scissors and a stapler.  For instructions click here.
