Summary

I went googling for images of New Year’s Glasses looking for ideas to make some 2016 New Year glasses for this year. I found several ideas (which I posted in the pictures) and also found a model here that apparently also got its inspiration from some of the same older year glasses available commercially. I tried printing it to see how it worked but I had several issues like the hinges were fused and didn’t work and they also broke easily. The glasses were also too small as if sized for children and uncomfortable on the nose’s skin due to the sharp edges of the numbers.
I ended up starting from scratch and making a new set that should work when printed even with less than perfect materials and settings. I made the hinges rugged and the glasses easy on the nose’s skin as well as on the ears. I also included two versions of the arms the standard length (most common) and longer ones. Thanks for the inspiration from previous ideas and enjoy this New Year’s Eve.

If you want to paint the numbers in different colors print the glasses in white material to have a good color base.

I printed the arms with black PLA at 220 degrees and 45 degrees bed.
The Glasses themselves I printed them with white PETG at 345 degrees and 100 degrees bed.
Fill is 10% and no need for supports because they are already in the uploaded STL file. Don't forget to cut them off before inserting the arms.
You will also need to use some CA or gorilla glue to secure the arms in place.

Enjoy.

Outstanding!

Thank you VERY much for creating this and for such a swift response!

You're welcome :)

Awesome! Thanks, these will be a huge hit tonight :)

This is awesome, thank you. The hinges print and work great and the arms fit into the glasses portion with ease. No scaling, no anything, just download and print.

Thanks!
(Replicator 2, standard profile, no supports, no rafts)

the bars are a little Court, can stretch of 1 centimeter?

Yes no problem. I'll make a 1cm longer version in about two hours when I get home. .

thanks a lot =)

OK the longer arms are uploaded. They're 1cm (10mm) longer as you requested.
Enjoy and Happy New Year :)

great job, thanks a lot! =)

Made it using two diffrent colors.
Its a great one!

Hi rwatkins2112,

I just tried it on Cura and worked on both models for me. You might want to go to expert mode and set the height and shell thickness to 0.2 and 1mm respectively and wait a little bit until the loading for tool-path visualization completes 100%.
Cheers.

Tried to use Cura to slice the glasses and it wouldn't work. Didn't see any error or anything, just wouldn't generate the gcode. Tried to do a 3d model repair and had same result.

I printed then using Matter Control. it did the slicing well. You might want to try that
