3D model description

There are a lot of awesome face shields being created by the community to help our COVID-19 medical heroes and essential workers. I noticed that most require multiple steps and tools to fully assemble. I wanted to design a super comfortable visor with fewer steps, minimal assembly time, and no tools other than the components being used.

This shield uses its own tension to keep the transparent sheet in place; so all you need to do is slide the sheet in the center opening and insert the shim. It can be adjusted vertically if you want more protection in either direction. It works with letter-sized sheets and they can be inserted in either orientation. Rubber/elastic bands are the only other thing you need, unless you want to trim the corners.

4/5/2020 Update:

New version added that is lighter weight, more flexible, prints much faster, and has an optional top cover.

4/28/2020 Update:

Slightly updated version of the frame, with thickened arms and notches to hold elastic bands more securely. (V2.5)

Hello, I have had the same problems. I could easily solve it by modifying the part where the elastic goes in a totally closed way: tinkercad (online) to edit it. I can help you jasj.20@gmail.com

Hi,
is there a way to "bulk" this up a bit? I've broken quite a few trying to insert the acetate, it also seems to break very easily in the furthest back part where u insert the rubberband/elastic, just wondering if the whole thing can be made thicker?

Very smart design. Well done.

The shim cover is a good idea ,but could you make one without the logo, its making a thin open area on my prints.
