Grille Inserts for my COVID-19 Mask Caps
Some makers have found a need to insert an additional protection layer to secure the filtration material, so these are made for that purpose. As some are more exposed than others I include some variation so you can determine which works best for your particular application. Just select one and insert it into the end of the mask underneath the cap. The directional option also provides additional protection for your filter.

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.
