I am thinking about trying to print a set of frames from my lenses because having a larger head I can't buy frames that don't squeeze. What I am wondering is what material to use? Anyone looked into skin irritation of PLA or ABS? Do glasses need ABS level of strength and flexibility?

I printed it in ABS and I didn't have any problem. Maybe PLA is too rigid for this model.

whats best way to printer

I prefer to print it upside down with support.

oh right cool do you build the support or just get the printer to make the supports ?

Would it be possible for you to upload the original file so we can adapt to our own lenses? I tried to modify the stl but my knowledge is far from producing something decent enough.


Awesome, but had rough time on rafts and supports. I'm wearing prescription glasses.

Comments deleted.

I'm glad I found this design, this fit the old lenses from my broken frames. The frame model is "Randy Jackson model 1917" by zyloware

You must have used supports right?

I used full support!

How did you get the lenses in the frames?

In the 3D model there is obviously some space dedicated to hold the lenses. You just have to push them into it and they won't move out of there.

Cool. I will try this week.

did you use any support structure to print these?

dont forget to update the instructions ;)
