I'm interested in making glasses from recycled plastic. Would you be willing to share information on how I can get a mould made and any other useful information on the process?

Hi there - We're an NGO cleaning plastic from beaches and recycling the plastic we collect.

We would be very interested in buying a mould or get the STL 3D files to produce one.

Please write to Michael@pure-oceans.org

Fascinating project. It appears that you use hinge "pins" made of the same material as the frames? I hope you will consider sealing the bottom of the pin perhaps using a soldering iron creating a rivet. I have been an optician for 40 years and have found that due to the rotation of the temples it can cause screws to "back out".

Hi Steve, thanks for your message! We designed the pins so that they will always rotate 1/4 of turn together with the arm, hence not being able to have vertical movement. We've had the first pair for about two years now and still going very strong without a single pin drop! :)

I am also curious about the molds. I understand that your particular molds are your IP and style but I am looking into doing something similar in a developing country. I was wondering what you would be able to share plan wise for the molds. I would want to chose my own style but I'm not sure where to start. Also, what type of plastic do you use for the lenses?

Hi Nathan,

We offer moulds design service as well as product design service. We are planning on releasing everything opensource, but haven't got there yet.

For the lenses, we use CR39, but we don't make them. Due to safety and health requirements they need to be brand new, unfortunately.

Hope this helps!

Marc.

Marc,

Thanks for the reply.

How could I get more information about your mold design service? On your website? Could you email me maybe?

I see about the lenses UV protection and all.

Looking forward to your opensource material.

Hello when I tried to buy didn’t show me options to choose one of the colours in the pictures. How can I choose? I’ve got that they will be always different but I thought you could choose at least a model to be similar.

And your product is amazing and super inspiring by the way.

Hi there. We would love to buy a mould from you. How do you cut the lenses so they fit the frames?

Are you planning on large volume sun lenses with no lens power or individual prescription lenses?

Wholesale optical laboratories do lens edging. I don't know what country you are in but you can either source locally or perhaps get a better price in Asia. You could explore buying lens blanks wholesale and using a lab for labor only or get a "package" price.

Many thanks for info, It is much appreciated. We're located in Denmark and Sri Lanka, so there should be a good chance we can get the lenses done in either spot
