Customizable Glasses w/ Fillable Lenses
by c15da, published
These are some fun and completely customizable regular/party glasses I made for the Customizer Competition.
I would have posted a better picture, but my printer has been acting up recently, so I only got one full print out. Either way, all the parts printed perfectly when the printer itself wasn't broken. These glasses have 100% working hinges using the amazing Pin Connectors library, and are made with a little give so they can even fold up! The lenses can be made rectangular/square, and round (circle/oval). The lenses can also be filled with a pattern, based off the idea and module from the Makerbot iPhone Case.
Basically all the lengths and settings are completely customizable, so they can be made to fit basically anyone.
Overall, these require absolutely no support, but do require some level of precision for the tall pins, but it is no problem for a Replicator or something similar. Once these are printed, simply align the holes on the frame and earpieces, and snap in the pin connectors.
I owe many thanks to the Customizer competition for inspiring me to get involved in openSCAD, it is truly an amazing piece of 3D modeling software, and competition or not, it is definitely something worth learning, and I would highly recommend anyone interested in 3d printing and/or coding look into, especially with some of the amazing new tools coming out for it.
Also in the files there should be a set of extra pins, which will be needed if the original ones break. I have not have any problems with them, printing or breaking in ABS, but I figure it may help someone anyway.
