I flipped the side around and added support with meshmixer, and it printed out pretty well, although I agree that it could have been easier. The bigger issues for me are that the glasses don't fold (the sides get in each other's way) and the glasses don't stay on very well since there is no curve behind the ears. I used a stretchy cord to link the two sides to hold them on, and that worked pretty well, but I'd suggest looking more closely at that in future versions. Overall, though, I'd say it worked out well, and thank you for providing this!

Good points, thanks. Unfortunately I am away from my printer so don't really have the chance to test print to see if it works. I am liking the idea of thermoforming the arms though, so that you can get a custom fit. Folding is still a work in progress though haha.

V3 sides is too hard to print due to complex curved temples
If printed hinge-down - support material ruining surface because model is laying on it with no other fixed axis
I will try to print temples separated
Front piece is good enough

You're right, I was worried about having to use support as it is just annoying to do clean up. I think a good compromise is to model the limbs straight, then whoever prints it can use a heat gun or hot water to slowly thermoform it into shape. Then you'd get a perfect fit for your head. Will get to it sometime this week, hopefully.

hehe just seen an add on FaceBook where they say they will cost $115 and this is almost exactly what I was thinking of trying to design tonight, glad I checked here first, now I can get the printer warmed up a early and see if these things actually work =D

The ends of the tubes need connected together, otherwise the water won't self level.

Awesome. Glad to see someone take a stab at the design. I want to try with my kids.
