Hi. Great job. But when I printed the glasses, just one of the the 2 arms seems to be recognize by the printer. can you help me with this. thanks

I added a single arm file (the left) in case if you need to reprint it. Use the mirror operation to reprint the right arm. Happy New Year!

Great job!

Is DualExtruder STL for magnet only?
No ear pieces?

My bad on poor thing description, going to update it soon :)
DualExtruder STL is optional for 2nd color (the numbers in white in the photo).
The arms (earpieces) are included in the 1st STL.

could you also make a flat version of the extra stuff for people who dont have a dual extruder? i assume this could be printed and then glued together?

Good suggestion! I haven't done this yet because I need to make it a bit smaller on the perimeter in order to fit inside the frame.

oh ya.. tolerances.. well get er done!! its almost time and it takes time to print!! :P

Done! Check out the file "glasses_2019_flat_color_insert.STL" and let me know if it worked, please.

no.. it did not work at all.. wasted 2 hours.. did you just try to scale it down or something? that of course wont work.. you have to actually carve it out from the original.. no scaling.. until after you carved it out... then maybe like 99.5% or something.. you really dont want to scale at all.. just reduce the tollerance by .4mm or so..

My mistake, I used the wrong base model. It wasn't scaled of course, I did the outline. Let me fix it and test it before posting.

ok cool :) ty.. it is a great design and these numbers will work great to cover up the holes from the sides!

I fixed the glasses_2019_flat_color_insert.STL and have uploaded. I tested it in CAD program - it aligns properly with the frame. I hope the print will fit the frame as well!

ok cool.. did you put in some tolerance? or will i have to sand it and pound it in with a hammer :P

-0.4mm ( inwards )
Hopefully sanding and a hammer will not be required :)
You can also adjust the thickness of the insert by scaling along the Z axis only. It's 2 mm by default.

awesome! ty! i wont be able to try now until tomorrow night (both printers are busy), but i will let ya know...

yes! works great!! perfecto!! :P thank you!!

so what is the hole on the back of the number 1 for?

Great question! That's for a magnet. This could turn the glasses into a fridge magnet after the new year eve :)
