    Here's a project I've been working on for several weeks. It's an attachment to a pair of safety goggles that allows you to twist the front and adjust the tint (using two polarized lenses.)

    Pretty technical print, and I think I went through about thirty trials and 1/2 kilo of PLA before I got it right. :)

    It was a fun project, and I really got to know the Robo's manufacturing tolerances vs. my design precision.

    I posted it on Instructables too, with the full build.

    My final version I produced in black PLA, which looks better but it's harder to see the details.
