People often put a pencil behind their ear for safe keeping, but when wearing the appropriate safety equipment this is not always possible. This replacement temple for safety glasses holds the pencil securely conveniently.
I have included the STL file for 3D printing yourself. You can also find the file on Shapeways by following this link (ShapeWays)
This replacement temple fits 3M glasses that can be found at the following link and also at home depot. (3M Glasses)
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Measure and CAD
I started by measuring the temple of an existing pair of safety glasses with digital calipers and building it again in SolidWorks. Next I added the pencil clip part to the 3D part.
Step 2: Replace Temple
Unscrew the right side temple from the safety glasses and replace it with the pencil clip temple. There are minor variations between this style of safety glasses so a few minor modifications may be necessary in order to make the fit perfect.
Step 3: Stay Safe and Keep Your Pencil Close
Your glasses now feature a convenient place to keep one of your most important tools.
Stay safe and keep your pencil close.
