For people wanting the instructions like me I was able to find this https://cdn-learn.adafruit.com/downloads/pdf/3d-printed-wearable-video-goggles.pdf but it doesn't have super well written steps. Also the screen that it calls for is not in stock, as far as alternative parts, I'm pretty sure that this would work https://www.adafruit.com/products/2299 as an alternative display, but I'm not 100% sure, since I just recently started looking into this.

How much would it cost to make this?if i wanted them made?

I've been working on this build for a couple weeks now, and have reached a problem regarding the lenses. Currently, my main issue is that the lenses create a modest gap in my view near the center of the screen. Also, there is a stark difference between my L and R viewpoints. The Occulus Rift solves this issue by splitting the monitor into two separate feeds, and I am having difficulty finding nvidia or 3rd party software which allows my video card to accomplish this in real-time. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

For those with printing issues, the fixed STLs are located here:


Adafruit 3d-printed Wearable Goggles (Remix)

I am fighting the multi-material. I am using Slic3r and pronterface. I edited the gcode with an M226 .. no pause .. then I simply entered the word "pause" into the gcode .. did not pause even though it pauses when you type that in the pronterface console.

How do I get the print to pause at 30mm without me babysitting it?

Would you describe the software and printer as well as the steps you took to make this? I notice the supports by the nose on the screen side. However there are a lot of sharp 90 degree angles. Are you using slicer supports in addition to the modeled supports? Also wouldn't making a gradual 45 degree angle out remove the need for any supports?

Link seems to be back up.

Is Mr. Zuckerberg putting pressure on you?
