3D-Print Projects Look here for what you can do! (updated 4/22/2020 @ 11:30PM EDT)

  • Face Shield Frames

    • We will continue to take as many of these as you can print.
    • In order to assist our clients in identifying the material we have added versions of the STL files for Wilson and Flat Budmen with PLA/ABS/PETG stamped into them. This is the only difference between these files. Please use the correct one based on the material you are printing with. ( This adds 1 minute of print time over the "other" version with out the marking )
    • We are currently asking you to print one of the following frame designs:
      • Wilson V5 ( PLA, ABS, PETG, other ) [ 1 hour 11 minutes, 8.19 meters ]
        • original Wilson Strap Rubber Band ( stl )
        • Wilson Strap Lock ( stl )
        • WIlson Strap Adjustable Loop ( stl
      • Flat Budmen V3 ( PLA, ABS, PETG, other )   [ 1 hour 3 minutes, 7.11 meters ]
    • For PLA we recommend printing .3 mm height, 2 shells, 2 top, 2 bottom, 10% infill
    • We will take any remaining Budmen V4 or Wilson V4.2 that you have, but please switch to one of the models above.

  • Surgical Mask Strap Extenders (aka Comfort Straps)

    • We will continue to take as many of these as you can print
    • These are very popular with medical staff
    • If you can fit one or two of these on your build plate with a frame please do so. They will add about 15 minutes per strap.
    • The design called "Surgical Mask Strap Remix" is available on Thingiverse [ 15 minutes, 1.33 meters ]
    • We have done a remix of this design with a label to indicate what material the strap is printed with. ( PLA, ABS, PETG )
    • If someone is feeling ambitious it would be nice to redesign this so you could print stacks of these reliably.

  • Bias Tape Maker ( for your reference )

    • If you know someone making cloth masks they may appreciate having one or two of these made
    • It is a tool to help automatically fold material for sewing in such a manner as to create a strap which can be used for mask ties
    • This can be found on Thingiverse, the one we have tested takes a 4 cm strip of cloth and creates a 1 cm strap
    • We are not currently asking you to make any of these but its a cool design that you may find useful

  • Mega Wilson (Faceshield for Dentists)

    • For your reference we have included an STL file for the Mega Wilson.
    • It was designed in consultation with a dentist and allows the loupe to fit comfortably inside the shield.
    • It is based on a Wilson V5 with slightly deeper profile.
    • Mega WIlson V5 ( STL ) [1 hour 31 min 10.54 meters]
