Instructions

3 hour build time face-up (smooth exterior, rough interior, lots more support).

1.5 hour build time face-down (smooth interior, rough and chunky exterior like the ones pictured).

Integrated hinges are weak - be careful or replace with metal ones.

Holes for hinges will likely need to be drilled out after printing - use long glasses screws or a paper clip to fasten.

Probably not a good idea to soak these in acetone considering they will spend lots of time near your eyes! Use sandpaper/blowtorch/file to smooth out instead.

Please let us know if you better this design!

Happy Printing,

Beehive :)

Hi Htkay,
I am an optician and I am happy to make lenses for these. (i'm in North Devon) 3d Printed glasses are the way forwards. You dont have to have them CE marked as they are considered 'Bespoke' Reply to this post if you need anything and I will help if I can.

Have you any info on lenses. Perhaps did you model these glasses off another pair?

Having trouble getting somewhere to make lenses as frames need to be CE marked here in the UK.

Hi there HTkay,

You shouldnt need them to be CE marked (they are considered to be 'bespoke'. I am an optician with my own practices and I will happily glaze these for you. 3d Printed glasses are the way forward. Reply if there is anything that I can help with.
Happy printing...and seeing!
