Face Shield Frame High quality 3D Printed Kit


After some requests from friends and and some offers to local service men I´m now offering these face shields at a very reasonable cost to all of you.

This face shield frame is the most popular design from Thingiverse:
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4233193

I´m producing these at a very low cost, only 1.50 Euros or around 1.75 USD per frame, you will then have to add a rubber band or sewing elastic and a clear acetate or a clear binding cover.

Due to postage does not makes much sense ordering just one or two units.

The idea is to provide you all with a simple and cheap face shield now that we are all starting to go out but this is no replacement for a respiratory mask, medical staff use both!

This design is very easy to use, the acetate will be stuck between two rims, one concave and one convex as seen in the picture above, to assemble it´s just a mater of separating the rims, inserting the acetate or clear binding cover and pressing the rims back to the original position, they will tightly hold the sheet in place.

Please choose the closest size from the ordering tab, in doubt choose the size above, if you need something different please let me know via contact page.

Weight of the frame: 25grams / 0,84oz
Recommended colours: White or Natural
If printed in PLA washable in warm water up to 60C
If printed in PETG washable in hot water up to 90-95C
Washing in warm water with soap should be enough to disinfect.

Recommended Acetate thickness: 100-350 Micron (pretty standard acetate.)

About 3D Printed Model Airplanes
If you have doubts about how these models are designed, printed and how the fly, this page is for you.

Before anything else, watch this video.

The most common question I get is:

-How do these planes fly?

The video at the right is from FliteTest's Youtube channel, they installed cameras on the plane and filmed it in flight with a drone, these images are not only spectacular but they also allow us to see the behavior of the plane in flight. Enjoy!

This P-38 in the video requires:

  • 12 channels radio if you don´t use y-cables.
  • 4-5 full days straight to print on one printer if everything goes well.

All our 3D Printed planes are here.

Important Notice:

If your orders placed during the COVID pandemic are delayed the reason is the reduced number of airline flights and your national mail service not distributing mail as it normally would, please ask at your local post office what is the delay currently, we just can´t tell you any better than they.

The feedback from US customers who ordered during April and May is that orders are being delivered in about one month and a half. If you ordered Priority mail you can use the tracking code I added to the Paypal transaction at the USPS (or any other mail service) website.

Order Queue:

Current queue for new orders of 3d printed kits is 2 months. (Starting on the 20th of June 2020)

For printed plans there is no queue. Prints are posted next business day.

Terms of Service.
Please read the 3D Printing Service Terms of Use before placing an order.

About the 3D File source and Print Service:

The Face Shield Frame was designed by AeroFred and will be printed by AeroFred as a service.

Model Printing and Order Processing:

Printing a model airplane requires many hours of printing, typically, for the models we sell, between 24 and 280 hours if the job is done one one single printer. Luckily we have many printers so your new plane will be ready to ship in 1-2 days if is printed in PLA or up to 2 weeks if it´s printed in PET-G and we don´t have the chosen color in stock.

Scaling:

Models from AeroFred can be scaled up by up to 130% depending on the model but please know that when these models are printed all the needed fixtures for motor, battery pack, servos, links, wiring ducts are also printed so they would all be scaled so additional work will be required on your end to fit the gear.
As an example, the Edge uses 5 grams servos, if scaled to 130% (1,56m) the servo slots will hold 12 grams servos perfectly but the motor mount will have to be adapted. This can be easily done by using bolts from end to end and washers in the back. Not beg deal. But on the P-47 that uses retracts the ob is not this easy, you would have to create a plate with holes to secure the retracts to the wing.

Modifications:

We can´t do modifications at design level. However, PLA glues very well with CA and accelerator so you can do as in any other model airplane kit, you can add balsa or lite ply and you can make any modifications yourself.

You will receive:

  • Complete Face Shield Frame 3D Printed KIT on PLA or individual parts for the same model, depending on your order.
  • One piece of printed PLA, some bad print I may have around here, so you can do your experiments and tests instead of trying on the plane itself.
  • Cardboard box with appropriate cushioning so the parts are protected during the shipment.

The manual can be downloaded in PDF format and has links to web pages where the needed components can be ordered.


You will NOT receive:

  • 3d .stl or .gcode files, project files or any files at all apart from the pdf manual.
  • CA Glue or CA Accelerator.
  • Electronic components.
  • Wheels, hinges, propellers, screws, piano wire, carbon fiber tubes or rods, paint or decals.

Note:
Vinyl decals do not stick on 3d printed planes, the only way to add insignia, camouflage, letterings is to paint with acrylic spray paint and a stencil or a mask.


Assembly and preparation:

Modeling work it´s your job :)
You will have to follow the manual to assembly this kit and do all the work needed, this is a model airplane Kit, not a toy.

Model Durability:

Both PLA and PET-G are excellent choices for printed planes but PLA will not withstand temperatures above 60C and inside a car in a hot day this temperature can be reached easy, if you live in a region with hot weather the best option for you is to select PET-G as building material, PET-G is more expensive, harder to produce and takes longer to print but the parts are stronger than PLA and will hold temperatures up to 90C. PET-G weights the same as PLA and it´s slightly more flexible making it best choice for durable model airplanes today.

About our printers:

We use high quality original 3D Printers, no Chinese clone printers or cheap Ebay 3d printers.

About the different filament types:

PLA: PLA is the most used material on 3d printing today, it prints well, with good finishing and little or no warping. We use the top quality filaments made from NatureWorks Ingeo3D850 and Ingeo3D870 and Filament PM.
PLA shouldn´t be used in warmer climates and dark colors or dark painted PLA should not be left under the sun, it will deform, temperatures above 60C will deform PLA.

ABS: ABS is one of the most commonly used plastic, Legos are ABS, your car bumpers are probably ABS. This material has a high resistance to heat (90C or more) and it´s strong. It would be perfect for our planes if it wasn´t so hard to print in single wall as we do in model airplanes.
It is still used for solid parts like motor mounts an other parts that require strength and heat resistance.

PET-G: PET-G is the material used in plastic bottles, it´s very strong, possibly stronger than ABS and has a heat resistance similar to ABS. PET-G it´s a little more flexible than PLA but is still a great material for printed model airplanes. It is the right choice for warmer climates and when extra resistance is needed.


Packaging:

We will use strong double wall cardboard boxes and the appropriate cushioning to protect each one of the printed parts, every part is rolled on bubble wrap plastic film.

Shipping:

We ship from Portugal, Europe and use the reliable Portuguese mail system CTT.
CTT has delivery agreements with different entities on each country so if you´re from the US you may have your order delivered by USPS, in the UK may be Royal Mail and so on.


Discount Coupons:

Discount coupons are valid from 3 to 30 days after purchase, you can use them any number of times you like but only once per item order.
The codes are issued in the Paypal invoice, please check the transaction details at Paypal website or in the Paypal email you received after purchase to get your Discount Coupon code.
You are free to post the Coupons online, give them to friends, share them in any way you like.
To use just Copy/Paste the Coupon code (i.e.: TAKE10#6012019) to the text field in the plan listing page to use your discount. No spaces and no manual typing, just copy/paste.

Postage Rates Types:

We charge according to the ctt.pt postage table. The smaller planes that fit boxes up to 90cm (sum of the three dimensions) and weighting less than 2kg we ship as a "letter" so the postage it´s cheap, larger planes have to be shipped as a "package", this is why the postage it´s expensive for medium and large planes. Packages less than 250 grams may be shipped as normal unregistered mail.

Priority Mail w/ Tracking:

All 3D Printed models and parts are shipped by priority mail that is traceable, larger boxes are shipped as a package that is also registered and traceable and will arrive as quick as priority mail. Packages less than 250 grams may be shipped as normal unregistered mail.

Returns:

We will only accept returns of non assembled, undamaged complete models or spare parts.
Postage fees from the original order are non refundable and you will have to pay the postage back to us.
No re-stocking fee if everything arrives in good condition.
In doubt please ask us for an opinion.

Orders can be paid with Paypal or Credit Card via Paypal and are shipped to the address on your Paypal account or to the address you set at checkout.
