You may have once wondered what your eyeglasses , or what is this or that part called But in the end you said to yourself: what could be simpler than a pair of glasses It is true that in appearance, we say to ourselves that there is nothing good complicated two glasses, two branches and it's

In reality, it is much more complex. Small objects and small parts are lurking all over your mount , without you even being aware of it…

We will therefore help you to see clearly through this article on the anatomy of your pair of glasses .

Glasses from A to Z

Frame : This is a metal rod that helps strengthen a plastic branch.

Front bar : it is often found on aviator-style glasses, it is the element that follows the line of the eyebrows on the face of the frame. We also fix the non-rimmed glasses.s.
Branches : we hope you know what it is but we will explain it to you anyway: this is what prevents you from holding your glasses to your face, otherwise it would still not be very practical and yet they do not have beené invented only in 1730 !

Circles : They come in duplicate (like the lenses, or otherwise it's called a monocle!) and are the frame elements that surround the lenses.
Chamfer : it is the flat part of the oblique plane inside the lens which forms an angle with the face of the groove and which allows your lenses to fit in your circles
Hinges : These are the joints that connect the temples to the face of the frame and allow your glasses to be folded.
Elbow : beginning of the arch which rests on the top of your ears.

Half-rimmed : glasses whose lenses are held by a nylon thread at the bottom of the frame
Drageoir or groove : groove inside a circle that holds your glasses, the chamfer rests there so that the glass does not pack up!

End cap : This is the end of the branch that rests on the back of your ears.
Hubcaps : nothing to do with your car wheels, even if the idea is the same: hide on the outside of the face and temples, the end of the screws or rivets of the plates.

Bezel wire : wire which allows, by inserting it in the circles, to hold the glasses while inserting them.

Hinge pin : axis of articulation of the hinges.
Fixed pin (or hinge screw) : type of pin screwed into the cheek of the tenon.

Play : halves of a tenon which allow the circle to be tightened around the lens by screwing.

Eyewear : eyewear manufacturer
Eyewear : spectacle industry.
Glasses or frames : wooden, plastic, metal, composed of two branches, two glasses normally you know what it is!!

Materials : At Gravity, we decided to offer you acomplete collection of 3D printed solar and optical glasses!
Mount the plates : place the pads on the frame.
Mount : See Glasses

Nose or bridge : element which joins the two circles and which generally rests on the nose.

Platelets : pieces serving as bearing surfaces on the ridges of your nose.
Bridge : See Nose

Heel : part of the branch which carries the post.
Let us hold : parts of the hinges attached to the end of the circles.

Glasses : This is the essential part of glasses because after all that is normally what you buy glasses for, to protect your eyes. They can be corrective, treat to protect you from screens, or solar, polarized and much more.
