I am looking for the DXF mentioned in the pre and post processing section of the 3D printing instructions.

Thank you for any help you can provide

@JCWilliams - that file is a couple clicks away

 Please note that the .dxf is also available in the OTHER FILES section of the downloads. 

What print settings did you use to get four of these to print in 4 hours? We're printing on a Taz Pro printing with the settings from the attached GCODE file, but it comes out to about 10 hours. What print speed are you using? 

Also, we tried to import the attached GCODE file directly into Cura, but its unusable because it centers on the top right corner of our build plate rather than the center and we're unable to move it. 

Please let me know as I am running low on filament. Are the following industrial-grade filaments acceptable?



The design says 11 x 11 print bed for 4 sets. what is the minimum for a sngle print? I have a smaller bed and I would like to make this and need to know if I need to order a bigger printer.

I've created a split version of this for folks with smaller printers: https://3dprint.nih.gov/discover/3dpx-013523

Any chance for 3 hole punch version?

The face shield model is not manifold and has some internal faces where the side tabs meet the body. This caused some issues in my slicer (the tab perimeters were printed separately for several layers). My repaired version is at https://3dprint.nih.gov/discover/3dpx-013879

Thank you 3DLirious! I have been trying to fix this mesh from the stl file and discovered it is not easy. I have been having some printing issues due to this working with PETG. So I hope this helps. I was having similar issues to you. Thanks so much.

Thanks so much 3DLirious. I was having problems printing the old version because it was not manifold and this version works great!


Modified side tabs to eliminate retractions and added new files.

This remix (https://3dprint.nih.gov/discover/3dpx-014416) has a top sheet instead to reduce the time and material for printing while retaining the original shape of the shield.
