Recommended Posts

Been busy designing some cycling glasses, got them 3D printed:

Need painting and lenses are being treated by a special process which will make them much more clear (like glass) then tinting film is being applied. Will post pics once finished.. Ignore the red tape holding the lens in place..

:) Well I work for a RP company 'EnvisionTec' so used Perfactory standard Zoom & UV for the clear lens (at 35 Microns for the frame/arms, and 100 Microns for the lens which was polished).

Pretty neat design. I wonder whether there's any light leaking over the top? seeing as it's such a square design.

Also, how did you manage to make the hinges? seems to me like a pretty difficult hint to do with a 3D printer...

Sorry for the delayed response, thanks! Not over the top really, more-so at the bottom but they are slender cycling glasses which have changeable prescription lenses (not sunglasses). I have modified the design for a sunglasses design. I printed holes in the frame and ends of the arms and a pair of glasses screws applied, not difficult using our printers!
