Custom Eyewear Temple Arm

This is a template for designing your own temples for the Dilem interchangeable eyewear. This is for experimentation only and not intended for creation of mass quantities.

How I Designed This

This was my first original design, so I’m sure it could use some updating. I used a caliper and several iterations of prototypes (didn’t have any specs).

Here’s the original design:

Right Temple

Left Temple



Scaled to 100% using PLA. You may experience shrinkage with ABS, but I have not verified.

The temples work “as is” straight off the build plate, but if you’d like a bit more form-fit, set your build plate temp at ~70-80 deg C, pull the temple off the bed and quickly form the temples in any shape you like. The shape retention of PLA is impressive.
