3D model description

A print-in-place case for your glasses or sunglasses.
I used to break my sunglasses several times a year because I just stuffed them into my bag – so I designed a case to protect them.

The Design is provided with and without the ornament

Inner dimensions: 154 x 61 x 26 mm
If you have bigger glasses – you can scale the thing up

Don’t forget to post your makes!

3D printing settings

Required build volume: 170 x 170 x 80 mm
Material usage: 120g
Print time: 11h

Material: PLA
Print direction: stl is rotated correctly, check images
Support: none
Nozzle size: 0,4 mm
Line width: 0,4 mm
Layer height 0,2 mm
Outer walls: 5
Top/Bottom Layers: 5
Infill: 100% - you can print with less but to ensure maximal stability 100% is recommended.
Build plate adhesion type: If your printer or filament tends to warp – please use a brim to avoid layer shift as the result from warping – this will make the hinge unusable
If you use cura you can use the feature “small feature max leight” under “experimental settings” and set it to 50mm – this way the hinge prints slower (not necessary, but recommended)
If you experience any problems, please feel free to contact me on twitter or Instagram
