PLA Filament

We recommend using PLA material for this project for best quality and minimal warping. Slice settings are recommened for printing on a Makerbot Replicator 2. Parts do not require support material. The mask part included build-in geometery for support.

Printing Ze Parts

These parts are optimized for printing on FDM desktop machines. The parts can be printed on surfaces such as blue tapers tape, glass, acrylic and flexible plates.  All of the parts have their orientations centered for printing piece by piece. We recommend printing parts individual for best quality. Tolerances should be snap-fit and tight. If things are too tight, you can however use a Dremel tool or sand paper to loosen up the openings. Parts in this project were printed on a Makerbot Replicator 2.
