Raise lower pegs 2mm so there is no gap in shield at punched holes which can allow fluids to pass through shield.

jrhirsch,

We understand the need to keep the fluid path as small as possible.  This is why we separated the forehead visor and created a drip path that runs over the front of face shield instead of behind.

The reason most of the 3D printed frames have the pegs at the bottom is to facilitate fast 3D printing without supports and addtitional cleanup.  The printer can print the pegs directly, minimizing the post work required.  Most FDM printers can print up to 60 degrees or so "out in space", so there is an opportunity to try and float the pegs above the print table without supports, but the added expertise required to get durable, clean prints drove us to keep the pegs at the bottom.
