These are a fully functional pair of glasses frames. The hinges snap together, and are completely foldable. All you have to do, is go to your optometrist and push in some lenses.

Hi @BrandonWong, I got myself a pair of these wonderful glassframes for Christmas and still I havent been able to use them. Thats so SAD! :( Its just impossible to get the temples and frames together - as you already wrote underneath in your comment od november 23rd, they just dont spnap together. So what should I do now? I actually spent my money in a cool design (because it is supercool!) which I cant make use of! Can I get a functionning replacement? Or at leat my money back? I tried many ways to mount them and even asked an optometrist ans they couldnt do it either!

@kevincornils Thank you for your message. Your issue is most likely caused by the hinges being unable to snap into place wih a snug fit. As a result, the temples and frame do not 'hook' together. This sometimes happens when the joints on the frame wear out or get filed down and sometimes happens in the 3D printing process. I will work on a solution as soon as possible.

Hi Brandon, Have just received my pair - the hinges do not lock in place and pop out whenever the frame moves. Is there something I should be doing differently?

Hi Brandon, very nice, great work! Which software did you use to model this one? Cheers, Jörg

Nice frame! Do you know already how the rather rough black string and flexible-material will work with sweat? Or do you recommend to seal the surface with some paint?

@kspence I got my local optometrist to cut and fit the lenses in for me. The lenses on my pairs fit snugly. There is no locking screw.

@BrandonWong Do the lenses 'pop' in? Or is there a mechanical locking screw?

@kspence Thank you! There is a built in bevel where the lenses should go. This allows for lenses to be inserted. The arms join using a snap together design. This also allows them to fold.

Really cool, but how do you get the lenses in? And do the arms fall off?
