3D Printed Face Shield

I uploaded a quick easy to print 3D printed face shield. This is based off the model by:

I have included both the STL and the Fusion 360 files.

I solved three problems with the original design:

1. Healthworkers didn't like the curls at the end since it conflicted with face mask straps and headbands so now the ends are straight.

2. I changed it to use a standard 3 hole punch. It doesn't attached to as many places but it isn't a problem because of the other fixes.

3. Each of the three visor attachment nubs is notched so the plastic goes over easier. This also solved the problem where the visor plastic would tear and fall off.

Now some hospitals will only accept face shields that come up over the head. This could be easily modified but would require a laser cutter or had cutting plus additional material, or extra time 3D printing. Many hospitals will accept this design and they are far faster to produce. So I suggest testing it out.
