PROFAPLA allows you to manufacture a visor support in 13 minutes on an FDM (filament deposition) 3D printer. The visor thus created will be ultra-light, comfortable, stable, will protect the forehead, will not limit the mobility of the head, and does not require drilling of the screen.


Model registered and offered as a file under the Creative Commons CC BY-NC-ND license, a deliberate choice in the particular context of the Covid-19 crisis, PROFAPLA is an evolving solution, dedicated to optimization according to your feedback.


The general shape of PROFAPLA, based on precise statistical data (dimensions, contours, shape) of a head, is adapted to the greatest number of potential users, female or male, in order to maximize wearing comfort despite its minimalist appearance. .



  • Ultralight (5 grams printed in PLA) ;

  • ultra-fast to produce (13 minutes in FDM 3D printing) ;

  • can be produced by many means (see below, to be continued) ;

  • one-piece design quick and intuitive screen change ;

  • flat shape without sharp corners facilitating sterilization operations ;

  • usable with any flexible screen (max 350 microns) up to 304mm wide ;

  • suitable for wearing glasses and over-glasses, without fogging ;

  • suitable for wearing surgical masks and FFP2 / FFP3.

  • Design optimized for mass storage (screens and rubber bands included): 30,000 pieces per cubic meter




PROFAPLA is intended for use by all personnel:

  • exposed to the risks of contamination by the Coronavirus,

  • needing facial protection that does not interfere with movement,

  • having access to and using sterilization by the usual means,

  • wishing to be able to take full face protection stored flat.




PROFAPLA was designed by considering production by all possible means in a context of health crisis and limited access to conventional industrial means.


For now only the files for FDM 3D printing are available, we will update very soon with the other possibilities.


You will find in the technical notice in the .zip file all the information to print PROFAPLA in 13  minutes on any 3D FDM printer whose plate is more than 270 mm side.


We are working on solutions allowing printing on smaller trays.
