Pimax + Vive DAS 3d Printed Adapter Parts

#61

After filing down, getting my thumb cut and bloodied, numb fingers, finally managed to get it done.


#62

I was thinking of doing an adjustable height(Reddit suggestion) ‘slider’ for the DAS peg section that would be a separate piece from the part that slides over the stock clip. I scraped the idea(for now), in order to get a lot of adjustable ‘steps’ it weakened the ‘bite point’.

I see what you are proposing here, however the two pegs overlap one another. It could be done, however the pegs would need to cut into each other.


#63

Should be doable with the support for the peg in between, meaning the inner part, and a bigger opening on the outer part to allow clearance for the DAS peg to go through.

I had just finished an hour long session of beat saber and that foam is very good at absorbing sweat but totally unhygienic and I had to squeeze out as much sweat as I could and squeeze the foam with a towel to get as much sweat out of its pores.

So the conundrum now is whether I can safely detach the DAS safely or not. Since I think my Vive is better suited for VR exercises. My Pimax needs to be shelved too, I think, until I can get my hands on better GPU since clearly a GTX 1080 is not good at all.

Looking forward to your revised design mate!

hay I would like some of these in Australia, any chance I can pay you on paypal for these parts and pay you to ship them to me? send me an e-mail at robofthalaria@hotmail.com and we can organise it.


#65

There should be loads of 3d printing services in Australia. You should probably download the files from Thingiverse and have them sent to the print shop of your choice. Ought to be much cheaper that way.

My vive DAS turned up yesterday then I spent 4 hours trying to print the adapters because I couldn’t find the glue stick and they kept moving before the printing finished . I found pulling the face mask off VERY difficult and I had to pull a lot harder than I expected . Once the DAS is all set up it is far more comfortable than the Pimax head strap + it keeps the 5k+ off my nose so I am very happy I decided to buy it .


#67

How do I safely take off the lenses/face plastic cover to get the original hinges out?


#68

No need to take the plastic, just gently press the hinge against the plastic and it comes off very easily :slight_smile:


#69

Safer still to use g-coded’s design.


#70

Much thanks for providing this to the community. Im not sure which parts to order at thingiverse. Can you tell me which parts below I will need, and is the design working ok with no breakage, I guessing use 100% fill, whats the best material? Thanks!!

The 4 v3 files are the new design, I’ve been using these for a couple weeks. I printed at 90% as I’ve heard printing at 100% can create ‘overflow’ due to variations in filament thickness. Any of the DAS designs will never be 100% unbreakable due to the small post needed for the DAS.


#72

Finally grabbed the files from Thingiverse and had a friend print them off. Decided not to sand smooth the parts in order to match the rough finish of our high end HMD lol.


#73

Ok so the 4 V3 parts you mentioned are for the side mounts correct?, what about the upper center mount as pictured below?


#74

I didn’t modify this part, I didn’t feel it need it. I guess I could/should link this part for people who are printing a full set.


#75

Oh ok i see, you modified the side pieces only. I guess I could somehow import the one that DrCube designed.


#76

Looks like you slide in design works well @g-coded! Looks awesome judging by jTeller’s picture. Has a very elegant look to it as well. I’m still sporting your older design and it’s working remarkably well. Would definitely change them to this one at some point.


#77

Edit: nevemind, I see this is almost a FAQ on this thread :slight_smile:

Decided to give DAS a try. Could someone clarify Step 1 of the installation for me? How do I remove that Pimax interface thing from the HMD, just pull on it?

Thank you @Dr.Cube for coming up with the design :slight_smile:


#78

I didn’t remove it, but was able to swap the side hinges without doing so, but be careful so You don’t snap the newly printed hinges when attaching them (I broke one, but had luckily ordered two sets - both the short and the long version of @Dr.Cube’s hinges). Easy does it :wink:


#79

Thanks. Did You use 100% fill, PLA? You used the newly added side hinges, last two models, right?


#80

They weren’t available when I ordered, but I would have if they were :smiley:

I ordered before getting the Pimax so I had everything ready to go… :wink:

Just checked my order and I’m actually not sure. It just says “Black PLA”:

No.0_P(+4523848494)_Black PLA x 2_DAS_Adapter_Short.STL: $2.56 USD
No.1_P(+4523848494)_Black PLA x 2_DAS_Adapter_Long.STL: $2.68 USD

Maybe You can deduct it from the price(s)? :slight_smile:

BTW - The TopClip style thing broke because of the bending when trying to insert it but I kinda expected that as I’d heard it happen before.
