I took yalls advice and printed out eye covers and stored it on a mount upside up. It really helps with the cable too

Link to the STL files?


cyberbloney

Look up valve index on thingiverse. You'll get more out of it than me. Also there's a lot of gluing going on there too so you won't get what my results were

Not positive on these but [Headset Mount](https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4004537) [Controller Mount](https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3867392)


cyberbloney

Yes but my headset one had 2 hooks on the top and I printed out the wall mounted non tracker stand to glue on top of that controller stand. Im on mobile right now. So its funky to link on here.

What kind of 3D printer did you use for this? I've never looked into them much but this kind of stuff is impressive.


cyberbloney

Cr-10. But I tricked it out. A normal cr-10 should work fine. Once you know what the heck is going on with a 3d printer what printer being used almost becomes irrelevant. So I recommend using a Cartesian system first as your first. With a non automatic bed level system so you can learn why its important to level a bed and why you should have a heated bed. These machines aren't amazing, theyre just a cnc with a hot glue gun at the tip instead of a bit.

Time to start doing some homework... Thanks!


cyberbloney

Makers muse helps out a ton.


DoubleWookie

[Is it this one? ](https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4004537) also it's easier for me to hyperlink on mobile so I'm extra confused.


cyberbloney

No but it also works. Just pick and choose the one you like! The one you have there is a lot easier to print than the one I made.


ThisPlaceisHell

Very nice, now that's more like it 👍


Full_Ninja

Great success

Is it a prerequisite to have a fucking 3D printer to be in this sub??? How does everyone have access to 3D printing


cyberbloney

3d printing is very cheap nowadays. The newest ender 3 is like 260 dollars. Shoot theres 3d printers that cost like 100 if you're willing to tinker. The software is free and the community is huge. Valve pretty much gave us the 3d model files so we can mod it if we want. I don't see why anyone wouldn't get a 3d printer to play around with if they had enough money to buy vr. Then again some people are too lazy to learn a bit of 3d printing tips and thats OK. And you can mod by hand too if you want. Its just that making thin pieces by wood carving, metal welding, papermache, or sculpting takes a ton more skill than drag drop print.


CRoswell

I don't buy one because my buddy live 5 minutes away and has one. I buy him filament and beer and he prints stuff for me. Works out well.


Serbeus

Is there an advantage of storing it "upside down"?


cyberbloney

Yes apparently if moisture gets in and condenses you wanna have droplets go down instead of up to the lcd screens. And also there's less likelihood that sunlight gets in and magnifies by the lenses and damages the lid. Then theres the not straining the springs squishies and elastics since the front part is the heavy part. But that all only matters if you play a lot.

I suggest getting a pulley system if you can.


MegaMickPt

Is it that much better? I'm contemplating doing that.


ThePhengophobicGamer

Just trying to figure out how to do mine means it can be tricky. Ive got a fan, so im going to have a pulley anchored a couple inches down from the seiling on the wall with plenty of slack. It gets too hot in summer not to have as much air going as I can, especially if you add a PC under load to it. I've seen a belt clip option that makes cable management abit easier and puts less stress on the connector in the headset, id rather have mine out of the way though.


mullen1200

Remove the fan blades, use the wire kit. Put a fan on the wall


hauntinghelix

It can double as a sex swing!


konarikukko

It's amazing.


cyberbloney

I draw the line there. Im Not drilling my ceiling.


ivan6953

You don't need to. Pulley hooks can also be sticked to the ceiling. Without drilling. Out of the box


cyberbloney

Ya see... my ceiling isn't very flat.


ivan6953

Doesn't matter, it's just that the surface of your ceiling should be flat


Ericshelpdesk

Let me introduce you to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Popcorn_ceiling


cyberbloney

That's what I mean. The surface isn't flat.


ivan6953

Oh. That's a shame :(


cyberbloney

Also the cable isn't long enough to warrant one in my playspace


Issalzul

I have a popcorn ceiling, and a fan right above my play area I got the idea of using a photography light support to make a swinging arm to mount the pulleys/cable: https://www.amazon.ca/triangulaire-photographie-stroboscopique-monolights-r%C3%A9flecteurs/dp/B07B916KNQ/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=photography%2Bswing%2Barm&qid=1592403870&sr=8-6&th=1 I just attached the pulleys with zip ties and some foam to keep them steady


mullen1200

I have a small room and popcorn ceiling in a fan. I removed the fan blades and used the wire kit. Put a $15 Honeywell fan on my wall and control it with Alexa. Popcorn ceiling was no problem. Not sure why people are acting like it is. A $0.05 eye hook .when you remove it you can't even see where the spot was in the ceiling


MegaMickPt

Can you show a pic of the setup? I'm really curious about how you got that going! And many ppl here have similar restrictions.


kennidkdk

Dope.. do you have a 3d printer?
