3D printable sensor mount hobby project

Honored Guest

Hey all!

I'm one of the folks at
Oculus who has been working on Oculus tracking and roomscale support.  When
I was experimenting with different setups, I decided to start up a bit of a hobby project to create a few mounts I could use at my setup at home.

I got into 3D printing
about a year ago, and have been having a lot of fun creating some custom items
like this.  Note, these aren't Oculus products or endorsed as official
Oculus mounts, but I figured if people in the community wanted to give a shot
at printing them and adding them to their setup it could be a help.  3D printing can be difficult if you don’t have a lot of experience, so in many cases you’re better off buying official tripod mounts.  That said if you’re up to the challenge feel free to try printing these and/or modify them for your own use.  These are the items attached:


holder-corner-slim.stl - Slim version of corner sensor mount

holder-corner-standard.stl - Full rectangular version of corner sensor

holder-flat-slim.stl - Slim version of flat sensor mount, for
mounting directly on a flat wall

holder-flat-standard.stl - Full rectangular version of the flat mount

Cord-guides (to keep the sensor cord against the

cordguide-corner-slim.stl - Guide which uses one screw to press the cord
against the corner of your wall

cordguide-corner-standard.stl - Guide which uses two screws to press the cord
against the corner of your wall

cordguide-flat-standard.stl - Flat guide to press your cable against a flat

In case you want to try
printing, I used these print settings on my personal machine:

Material: ABS (though PLA or other materials may work)

Infill 20%

Top/bottom/side layers: 4

Speed 40mm/s

Have fun!

P.S. I ended up designing these for #2 Phillips 1" 2.54cm drywall screws.  You should be able to pick them up at a local hardware store if you don't have compatible screws already.

When mounting with screws, I prefer this style. nhno13kclmdx.jpg

what design did you use?

Can I use really strong adhesive tape?
