what size lenses will these fit? Link for lenses? Nice design by the way. Thanks for including the blender files!

Thanks. Unfortunately I have no idea. Didn't even know there are sizes for lenses... is there some kind of standard I'm missing? However I could provide a outline/contour of the lens shape if you like. But the shape is slightly bent, so a simple 2D-sketch perhaps won't do it.

I still haven't inserted lenses in my glasses. But at least I have plans... an expensive one, a time-consuming one and a highly sophisticated one:

Plan A: Go to an optician with the frame and let them cut lenses to the planned size.
Plan B: Buy very cheap sunglasses with huge lenses. Take the lenses out and cut them on a grinding machine to the desired shape.
Plan C: Same as Plan B, but cut them with a laser attached to the 3d-printer.

Any further suggestions?

I have a similar plan (not sure when - if ever - it will surface at the top of my todo list :-) ), but then with prescription lenses.
I want to buy cheap frames in the shape i like, so I can pop the prescription lenses out, and model my own 3d printed frames around them. That way the inside shape is fixed, but I can play with the outside shape for many iterations/shapes/colors/materials.
Your model will serve as inspiration or even a starting point to model around the lenses. So thanks for sharing!

Nope, can't think of anything else
