EDIT: I've added a home base version that has the same hole pattern as the stock mount, that way you don't have to drill new holes
EDIT 2: I've added a "Home Stubby" version that is only ~60mm by 90mm, and should fit on a M3D printer.
This mount uses a tapered sliding dovetails joint (from woodworking) to allow the Vive Light house to be quickly and securely mounted and unmounted without any tools(after initial setup) or complex mechanisms.
The benefits of this mechanism are that its friction based joint is fundamentally wobble free and it is un-affected by poor printer tolerance.
The mount is made out of two parts.
The first is a puck that is mounted to the Lighthouse base. It should be assembled in this order: screw head - puck - lighthouse base - nut, making sure the puck is oriented so the screw head sits in the counterbore
The second part is wall mounted grove plate to accept the puck. It MUST be mounted WIDE SIDE UP. It can be securely/perminatly screwed to a wall, or it can be used with double sided tape or velcro if you are bold.
I have a set of groove plates permanently mounted in my vive space, and a travel set using Velcro command strips. when I set up at a friends house, I leave the mating Velcro strips on the wall, which makes setting up in the future easy.
To use the assembled mount, align the puck to the grove (Wide ends UP) and slide the puck firmly down into the groove. Everything should tighten up and be wobble free. to remove the Light house just lift it out of the groove.
