Step 1: 3D Printing

First, you need to 3D print the part, it's a small footprint and will fit into most of the 3D printers. We have printed it on our Ultimaker-3, 0.2mm resolution, 20% infill, PLA, 16 gr.

Step 2: The Assembly Process.

For the shield, we used a standard A4 clear card. Make two holes using paper punch at the center of the sheet, no need to be precise at this point. The third hole needs to be at the same distance as the first two holes, to do so place the punch on the existing hole, it will be your guide for the next hole.

Use an elastic band, it can be round or flat. The plastic part has one-way slip holders for the band.

We used a strip of foam for the inner side of the shield for maximum comfort.

    Very nice job, I really like your use of the humble paper punch and A4 clear card, please check out my tutorial on making an A4 face Shield for COVID 19 for people who don't have access to a 3d printer.
