3D model description
Note: this includes LaFactoria3D's original mask parts that this is designed to fit. It's a great design, and I include it here because they have since updated the mask base in a way this cannot fit. If you feel their updated version provides better protection I urge you to use it instead.
Replacement cap for LaFactoria3D's COVID-19 MASK
With time to print and paint before the 4th of July: the American bald eagle. Maybe I just wanted to experiment more with making printables with ZBrush, but I'm having fun here.
I haven't printed a test yet but find it fits well on the printbed pointing upwards, and it should work well with supports blocked in the upper half.
Instructions on how to assemble the rest of the mask efficiently and good materials to use can be found here, thanks to GiveWave Studios: https://youtu.be/9ItpExBEieY
If you find any issues with it or it my instructions are not clear, please let me know so I can make adjustments.

I've been a 3D artist / animator since the late 80's, primarily working in the entertainment industry and game production. At the moment I do most of my modeling in 3DS Max just because it's what I use at work, but also generally switch between that, Maya, and ZBrush. Currently preferred slicer is Cura.
About those masks...
Obviously, PPE is a wonderfully effective use of our resources. However, as important as the additional protection is, it can add stress for people receiving treatment and not being able to connect with healthcare workers. This goes even more for the healthcare workers themselves during an incredibly stressful time, and for children having to wear additional protection. This is what motivated me to work on these designs, to create some options for those who need a little stress relief without compromising their usefulness.
I try to keep my designs kid-friendly[^1], but there aren't many character options that don't seem scary or villainous. So I greatly appreciate the suggestions I get, and if I see a way to adopt it effectively for the current base mask I will jump on it.
Oh, and of my mask designs are completely free. I won't charge for custom designs as I am keeping them interchangeable with LaFactoria3D's original model, and it just doesn't feel right charging during a shortage of PPE. I appreciate donations of course to offset the cost of test prints, but please do not feel pressured to chip in.
[^1]: Well, except for the "headcrab". I know that one is creepy, but sometimes you have to embrace a weird idea and I wanted to experiment with some software. Think of that one as an option to keep others two meters away.
