Pimax 5k/8k rEvolve headstrap MOD + 6 mm vr cover foam replacement

So guys , just informing that’s works

Connected by 3 velcro straps, one of the velcro went thru audio hole , pretty tricky but it works and I can tell its 10 times more comfortable than standard strap
Also installed 6mm vr cover foam replacement from my OG Vive + extra layer of velcro ( ~3 mm ) to get longer distance to the lenses just to be able fit my glasses

well i dont know where you come from but 3d print services are in every small city in EU zone and in my country quite cheap

I recived yesterday info that John Toner ceo of Synergy Wizz (rEvolve dev) is also Pimax backer and he was actually debating how to make a front hinge that would fit the Pimax 5k…

If someone interested here is direct email adress : (mailto:john.toner@synergywiz.com)

I’m in NYC, but I’m sure there are places that 3d print here, I can look it up.

I’m just starting to print mine now, what settings did you use e.g. wall thickness and infill?
Just the back piece alone is saying 10 hours to print
