Align your frames up with Glass and take note of where the end pieces and hinges meet.
Measure and write down the depth of the front clip.
Measure where the temple and the end tips meet. Jot down the temples depth and height.
Download the 123D file to adjust the walls of the grooves that will latch on to your frames.
These groove were modeled for a thin design, so we've included un-combined geometry to easily adjust for larger frames. The front clip's inside area for Glass measures 9.66mm. The temple clip's inside area measures in at 3.80mm.
The wall for the front clip is adjusted by selecting the objects face and choosing the Press /Pull option.
Drag along arrow's line or type in the value for the end piece and hinge measurements.
Remember to leave at least a .8mm of wall thickness on the other side of the clip.
Add fillets to allow the clip to easily snap on and maintain a tight grip around Glass. Select the the edges shown and click on the tools gear to bring up your modifier options.
Fillet radius of 1 should be enough to round out the edges. Add additional fillets to the inside of the groove to curve around and firmly grip on to the frames.
Do the same to the temple clip part. Punch in the wall depth and add fillets. Depending on your frames, you may need to increase or decrease the length of the whole clip.
If the clip needs to be shorter, because of the temple curve of the ear, we can bevel sides for a more comfortable piece.
