update: see blogpost on http://www.theverge.com/2013/3/26/4148302/print-your-own-google-glass-and-look-the-part

Google augmented reality glasses. Especially printed for augmented reality specialist Sander Veenhof. www.sndrv.nl
Based on google sketchup warehouse model: http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=bd4a3e2d48a0f683c5a704727c612a0


The model is not modelled for 3D printing...!! But it prints fine...
The 'nose bridge' [?!] is made fatter and some parts are 'booleaned'.

Printed on Ultimaker...!

Update: the files glass are more or less in the right scale [the 'glasses' files are really big]

Update: Added also the 'complete' glasses. For dual color print frame and electronics separate. For monotone the 'complete' glasses will do...

Is there any change you might post them in a skp file? I would like to play with the design, but can't edit a stl file using Sketchup. Thanks, Love this thing!

joris - in reply to RKA72

I don't have the skp file. The skp i found is/was listed in the Sketchup Warehouse. The modifications where done in Blender or Rhino... [mostly on mesh level]

Thanks Joris! I will check that out.

HELP! Can anyone slice the frame into 2 or 4 parts? Its too big to print!! Please help.. email to me at [email protected]. :(

Maybe print it slightly smaller so it fits the platform...?!

Haha, en ik dus maar denken dat Sander, Joris is! Erg grappig. Komt door deze foto. Had twee maanden terug een lezing van Sander en toen vroeg ik hoe het kwam dat hij hier Joris heet, maar hij was dus alleen model voor de foto. Mysterie opgelost :)

Bij de lezing kwamen nog wat foto's voorbij van Sander en Klazien met zo'n bril ergens op een beurs, en dat er dan allemaal mensen helemaal gehyped kwamen kijken wat voor brillen het waren :) Prachtig!

Nice misubderstanding... : )

I did more projects with Sander, check also http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:87078http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... or http://www.sndrv.nl/ultimarker/http://www.sndrv.nl/ultimarker...

Thanks for the model.

google_glass.stl contains an error. The electronics part is a few layers above ground so it prints in the air.

google_glasses.stl does not have this problem and prints fine. I scaled it down to 163.39 mm over the ears.

good work, have just uploaded some pics from my print


Thanks for these updates...!!

Thanks for the Model! :) We had fun - a lot

Wow, do you make good things as well ?

Tell me what you like...

umm, no im sorry I was just being a jerk :(

FabCon (3d Printing Faire in Germany) used them for Promo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W80pn3qxTNUhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v...


I got an invite to the #glassexporers program. Did anyone else here get an invite?

Nope... Unfortunately not. If you have a spare, i can trade it for a look-a-like....! [serious!]

Anyone print this on a Lulzbot? It seems to think it's HUGE, and goes off the print area for me.

I uploaded new files with better dimensions. The 'glass' files [not 'glasses'] are better... Scale them the size you need.

If I load the model into MakerWare the dimensions are 681,80x727,24x129,18mm. What is the real size of the Google Glass?

I printed them in different sizes, 180mm overall with and 150mm overal with, everything in between is fine... [anybody knows the real size...?!]


I've been wearing this throughout the day. Half of the people know what it is. Most think it's real. Awesome job making it look almost identical!

What's the size? The file i downloaded is too big. I need to use 3Dmax to make it small ?Can you tell me what it's size?I am not good at English

joris - in reply to zhuge

Make it the size that fits best, thats the beauty of digital fabrication...! In Cura set the X size between 170mm and 180mm that will do. But a 5 weeks old girls needs smaller glasses...


I'm working on

  • Side fives* I know what I'm printing this weekend!

Yes! lets see people react to google glasses before they even come out officially. Thats gonna be hilarious!
