What size sheet of plastic is required for the shield?

I opened the .dxf in vcarve, assumed a work piece of 12 x 12 inches and this thing is ginormous!!

Thanks!

Thank you. Comments on that link were good too. Prusa is quite practical about what is useful.

Thanks, That was it! Switched mm and used a 304.8mm x 304.8mm workpiece. Fits perfectly!

Will be contacting my State Health agency to see if they are in need or would accept a 3d printed shield.

I have a JTech laser on my CNC so I could use it to cut them out.

I can't seem to figure out the laminating film.  So if anyone has a USA Amazon link, but if they are not shipping.

Could a 2 liter pop bottle be cut for the shield?

Thanks, Grey

There are other simpler needs than respirators and masks too. For example everyone in our hospital is getting their temperature checked on arrival with an Exergen temporal thermometer, but the covers are disposable and will start to run out soon.

Hello I'm new here I currently have 2 printers I would like to help make whatever I can. I live in Florence SC. The only thing is I only have just 2 rolls of filament left in my stock is there any companies that are sourcing filament to those who are helping?

Hey everyone, I just started printing RC3 of the face shield mask on 3 printers. Can anyone point me to a place to source head straps and the necessary acrylic sheets? I am located in Düsseldorf Germany. Many thanks in advance. Stay healthy! - Alex
