Levine collaborated with MakerBot to create custom-made sunglasses for Levine's Fall/Winter 2012 collection which were presented at NY Fashion Week on February 10, 2012. Levine worked with MakerBot to create the sunglasses to be printed on the MakerBot Replicator, and models were wearing these unique fabrications during Levine's NYFW presentation. This collaboration marks the first time that a designer will be offering a piece from a collection to the public via an open-source download through Thingiverse.com.

3 essential components to the AL x MakerBot Sunglasses:

  • Front Frame
  • Lenses (left and right separate)
  • Sides (left and right together)
    The "Front Frame" and "BothSides" stl files both require support for printing. However, just download the s3g files for your MakerBot dual extruder Replicator and print. For the lenses, gcode was generated for the MakerBot dual extruder Replicator and MakerBot Thing-O-Matic.
    There's also a stl file of left and right lenses to aid in creating custom lenses
    Tip: Some filing might be required on the side hinges to snap to front frame.

Thanks so much for your help

I made a set and had problems with the lenses, so I came up with a solution. I realized that a raft that had been made with a large round measuring cup could be cut and turned into the perfect lens. Here is a photo.

The lenses look solid in the STL, do you do something with the fill to make the inside design?

I'm surprised nobody responded to this – I'd say yes. Set bottom and top layers to '0' (i.e. none) and the fill to something funky like honeycomb, then adjust the %age fill until it looks good in the layers view in your slicer (I'm guessing 10% to 15% would look right).

First time ? I doubt it. But it's nice nonetheless :)

This is awesome! Just ran across the article on this through adafruit, and I come here to see if anyone replicated the glasses. I found even better...the actual glasses!
