Sunglasses Prototype !
Posted 03 August 2005 - 09:50 PM
I've been working a long time in a new sunglasses model. It was modeled in Rhinoceros. Now I want to make a prototype. I thought printing in a 3d printer but here in Brazil it sounds a litlle expensive. If someone has some ideia I'd appreciate a lot.

Very interesting your considerations. This sunglasses is a part of a big collection ( 15 sunglasses styles). This one is a classic model. The "aviator" is coming back in fashion trends, so just to make it a litlle bit different I've put the black part between the full rims. Regarding your questions about the temple (ear end pieces). It's a simple screw system. There's a hole on the temple wich allows the temple folds and the temple tip not touch the lenses. (as the drawing). Just for your curiousity have a look without the black plastic part.

Your eyewear looks very simple and to the point, but also very generic the only thing i like is the temple hinge and the earstems their simplistic value has me asking you for more.
as far as prototyping the eyewear what i used to do was buy a similar piece of ewear in a store and with jewelry pliers and snips just bend the wires till they were close and dial it in to look like what your presenting .
none the less if you have any more question you can reach me at Gyouwhy@yahoo.com

I donâ€™t exactly have a comment, but thought Iâ€™d be a smartarse and post my sunglass design too.
(if I may of course!)
Same design, different renderings. It's funny how just a different rendering makes a difference to the overall look of a design...
