Sensor mount for the Oculus Rift CV1 sensor. Use a 3M command strip to wall mount your sensor for improved field of view.

I designed the hole for the stem of the sensor too snug and used a flat head screw driver to scrape it out to the precise size I wanted.

This set up has been working quite well.

Printed a pair on a Monoprice Mini Delta, and they came out great. Just what I needed!

I do wish they had a bit of a lower "chin" as I've positioned my cameras high on the wall and it's difficult to give them a slight downward tilt.

Yep. Thanks for the heads up. I had seen it and complained but nothing happened. Maybe I wouldn't be bothered if they had just asked permission.

Just wanted to let you know that I am the one selling this and I did properly attribute it under the creative commons. I can absolutely send you some money for your model if you would want that. I'm sorry I didn't ask for permission, I didn't realize that you wanted it as it wasn't listed as non-commercial. Not sure what the best way to privately chat would be as I'm not entirely sure what the rules of this site are.

There seems to be a lip on the second layer when printing at .2 layer height. Not sure why, but was showing up for me and when examining the file, the first layer is a little shorter than the second. I sunk the model 0.2mm into the bed in Cura and all is well now.

What MarkSkarr said, it doesn't quite fit at 100% but at 105% it will fit inside pretty nicely.

I increased the size to 105%, and the sensor peg and USB cable snugly fit. I've printed another pair to give to a friend who also, recently purchased an Oculus Rift.

I had to do the same thing. MakerBot Replicator 5th Gen

I have ingrain wallpaper, so gluing is not an option for me. I am currently printing a modification that I made, so I could use a pair of nails: https://www.dropbox.com/s/oe9zdve557m1nxm/oculus_rift_sensor_holder.png?dl=0

I just slapped this on, so it's a bit bulky.

If it works, I will upload it, in case anyone finds it useful.

EDIT: it works, but it is a bit loose. I think something to force it against the wall would be better.

Great job! just saw your remix!

Thank you. Took me a few attempts to get the tolerances right, but now I am pretty happy with the result.

Thanks for sharing your attempts. What if you slice the back (mounting surface) off of the model, put screw holes in that, print and tightly screw it to the wall. Then you can print and glue the other piece to that portion that is on the wall.

What material do you recommend/did you use?

I used PLA. Seems ideal.

awesome job printing 3 right now

Thanks! Hope they work well for you!

Works great out of the box, i found for getting the hole to the perfect size the sensor stand without the sensor unscrewed works good.

What scale should this model be set to when importing the .stl file?

100% was a bit to small for me (and a few other comments). 105% seemed to do the trick.

Which 3M strips do you recommend?

Medium sized 3M command strips

Can you make the indentation for the cabling just a little deeper? 2mm?

Feel free to remix it!
