This is a remix of the "HTC Vive HMD Minimalist Wall Mount". The source had a problem with the menu button getting pressed and the holes are too far from the supports in my oppinion.
Rotated the model to have the layers in the strongest possible way.
The indents also made it possible to scale the whole thing down a couple op % to fit it on an i3 20x20 bed.

Print in any material with 20% infill, 8mm walls, .2mm layers.
The sample is made in polyMax PLA which can handle a lot of abuse.

Buy the wall mount from my shop at shapeways: https://www.shapeways.com/product/HGPSRKU3J/vive-hmd-wall-mount

Can't say it fits very well, yes technically you can rest the Vive HMD on this thing but the internal curved bit doesn't really seat against a similar sized curve on the HMD, instead there are like 4 small contact points near the corners I imagine prolonged use would scratch up your HMD a fair bit.

I wouldn't recommend it. Sadly there doesn't seem to be a publicly available 3d model of the HMD you can use as an easy reference for a mount.

Just take one of those cheap mousepads and detach the sponge from it, then glue the sponge to the sides of the mount with hot glue gun and you won't have any scratching issues :)
Take a look at the "I made one" for final result of my approach

Any way you could make this printable in multiple pieces? I have a printr bot Simple 1405 and only have about a 4x4x4in build volume and I would love to be able tp print a mount for my Vive

Could you give me a suggestion of how to make it printable in multiple pieces? Do you think that 2 pieces, for each side 1 that screw into the wall separately would be useful or do they need to be interlocking so that they can be glued to a single part?

Probably easiest to be 2 separate parts. No interlocking. That way I can mount it with the right distance apart

I'll see if o can do that this evening. That'll be a split and addition of an extra mounting hole per side.

Awesome...but it's smaller than the original. I printed it and I have to press the headset into it, potentially scratching the sides of it. I'm not trying to be a downer on this, I just don't want to marr my headset on a holder. Scaling down might not have been the best option, the original can print on an i3 bed when printed vertically and at a 45 degree angle on the plate. I know, layers are stronger that way, but the headset doesn't weigh that much.

Hmm, I couldn't fit the original on my bed, but that may have been because of skirts or a brim. Damn, I wanted this to fit... maybe the diameter of the indents is too small? I'll fiddle with this when I have my vive back home.

Yesterday I it to my vive and I like the fact that it press-fits. I might do the 2-sides-separately thing for Jaron though, which would let you choose the width.

Do you know what % it is scaled down too?

I tried it yesterday and i kinda like the snug fit, it snaps into place and hold the hmd in place. I'm not afraid of scratching although I can imagine mayermi's concern.

I scaled it Down to 93%, so scaling it to 107.5% will make it the original size.

Thank you! And thanks for the headstart and inspiration.
