Description

Please use my profile (designer), not sure if other profiles are automatically updated with all my latest changes!

Seeing my original model so appreciated: https://makerworld.com/en/models/82516#profileId-87957

I've decided to make a foldable version together with other changes:

 

  • Temples and main part connection were redesigned to be foldable and easy to fit together.
  • All parts can be printed on one plate without loosing the side logo. The letters are embedded and you can choose a color for each letter. Or print them in the same color, your choice.
  • small changes to print profile to make the temples better. Temples looks better now, printed face down on textured plates.
  • 30 minutes model printing time
     

 

UPDATE 11.12.2023 (please use my profile, not sure if other profiles are automatically updated):

  • I have modified the temples (arms) to open more. (to stop the glasses from bending too much in the middle
  • Also increased the thickness of the white squares, to have 3 layers. As someone suggested the white could be semitransparent in some cases. Also this increase the overall thickness of the glasses.
  • Added a small reinforcement to the top part of the frame, to be more strong and bend less.

    Attaching the temples:
  • They have a small groove on exterior side, so they can easily slide in only with a movement like in the picture bellow. 
    I've tested many times and worked for me, and I hope on other printers works the same.
    If you feel you need too much force to snap them in, please try to sand very little from the connection pins on the glasses.
     
  • In case you want to open even more the arms (temples), please carefully sand this red part. (not too much :) )

22 pair ready to be delivered to my daughter as a gift for her School mates. I just removed the thug lettering that can be unintended by the Kid's parents. Printed 3 by 3 on a1 mini combo placing the pieces in a different way in about 1h45. Also my daughter Thanks you to share this awesome gadget Florin

Kid's parents of other sections ask to get a pair of glasses for their Kids too so I must print other 50+. Hope to share a pic of all of them wearing the thug glasses with you in pvt after the party

I made a couple on the same plate of my mini, Printed with overture matte pla in green, I must print 22 for a School party of my daughter. Maybe petg is better for a more strong gadget but it works good even in pla. Thanks for sharing this cool item that everyone need 😂

I didn't tried in PETG, but I had some reviewers saying didn't go well in PETG. Maybe it has to be properly calibrated for the small details (lines) to be printed correctly. You can try anyway! Thank you very much for your review! Your print looks very clean !

Based. Another layer for the squares would be nice though, since white filament is often a bit transparent, it makes them a bit grey. Printed on an A1 Mini.

yes, you are right ... when i designed it, I was thinking to have less filament swaps for a quick fun print. :)

Hello again! Thank you for your idea! I thought about it, and i did some changes. I've added another layer to the frame and white squares as you proposed and also added some strength to the frame top part. I've updated my profile ! Have a great week !
