Summary

a Gun stock for Oculus Touch VR controllers, used for games such as Onward to improve aim and get a more immersive feeling.

This is a remix from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1745148/ which is for the HTC Vive instead.

I designed the Oculus mounts so you could use magnets to snap them on. But my neodymium weren't strong enough so I glued them to the rail mounts. Its still easy to attach the touch controllers.

I did a few changes to the shoulder stock and the mount after i printed mine so these models are not 100% tested.

You need to print
3 x VRR3a2.stl (rails)
2 x VRRb3.stl (rail mounts)
1 x VRR3e2.stl (stock mount)
1 x touch-mount-left-mk3.stl
1 x touch-mount-right-mk3.stl
1 x touch-stock-mk2.stl

The rails is a tight fit so be careful when you attach them.
Use superglue to make them extra strong.

Superglue the touch mounts with the rail mounts and place then were you want them on the rail.

If you feel that the shoulder stock is to high you could just rotate the stockmount 180 degrees to get it a little lower.

I will probably do some changes and upload new versions in the future.

  • 2017-01-26 Added a new touch mount which feels better, will try it ingame soon
  • 2017-02-08 The mk3 touch mounts fits much better in the hands than the mk2. But I kept mk2 stl files if someone wants the bigger grip.

Great file! Just printed a remix with the fixed adapter that had a few errors and it came out great.Would you consider raising the buttstock so we can use it as a cheek rest? Feels a little low.

What size are the magnet holes? and how much does the stock weight?

Comments deleted.

I would recommend reducing the curve on the stock. I don't know how to edit the parts myself. I might try to edit it if I get some free time.

Hey great design. Printing last few pieces now. Had an issue with VRR3e2.stl file seems to have some errors. Loaded it into 3D Builder (Win 10) looked fine. In Simplify 3D model had some gaps in it (Same with Cura). Used 3D Builder to fix errors and just resaved and works now.

Hello,please can share this fixed .stl
Thanks a lot
And please,can tell me what pieces needs supports?
Is it possible to make the piece VRR3a2 squared to avoid making supports?

I remixed this with the fixed .stl file. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2467379.

I think I had supports for most. The VRR3a2 I changed the supports to auto-generate for max overhangs 40 degrees cause it didn't make supports for the rail tips.

the VRRb3 I flipped with supports.

Hi,thanks for the help :)
Finally I printed the other model.And hided the rails a bit under the hotbed to win time on printing.

What games is this best forV?

Games where you grip weapons with 2 hands (Onward for e.g)

Hey Gurlelx,

Just wanted to say thanks! The stock came out great! I printed it on an Ultimaker 2+ using black PLA. No problems at all.

I did a video on my channel showing how it can be used in VR games here - https://youtu.be/XgteU0QPK30

Keep up the good work!

Thanks Mcussell
Nice review! :)

Hi just wanted to let you know that the files touch-mount-left-mk3.stl and VRR3e2.stl are broken.
I had to repair them via netfab. Thank you for the design

Which slicer do you use?
touch-mount-left-mk3.stl is the same as touch-mount-right-mk3.stl just mirrored so then you should have the same problem on the right one.

I'am using Simplify3d, The right one is ok, so i used the right twice and mirrored it.
If you open the files wiith Netfab or S3d you'll see a lot of problems.
Printed the Thing on the weekend and it came out fine.

Thank you again for your design.

How long does it take to print all these parts? Looks like a VERY LONG job....

The rails (VRR3a2.stl) takes a while.
Took me about 9 hours to print 3 of them.

Thats why Im making a pipe-mount edition.

I recently shared this on Reddit after coming across it. I'm glad to see you're getting some traffic now. This model alone has pushed me into researching and looking to buy a 3D printer. Good work.

If you haven't decided yet, check out the Prusa i3 mk2. I would buy that one if I were going for a new 3d printer today.

No I'm looking at the flashforge finder. I'm happy with just pla plastic. 1. It's a good price here in the U.K. And 2. Others in the same price range have mixed reviews at best.

Finder is a piece of junk. I have the Dreamer, it is the one that actually lets you change temps and use other materials. The Creator Pro is the best one to get IMHO though. I have that one as well.

Finder only prints in PLA, and you can not change the temps at all.

Well it's all 5 star reviews online so I'm gonna take the word of the overwhelmingly positive reviews online. Bare in mind this printer is only £400

If you want a simpleton version of a printer that has no option to change temperatures and other features, the Finder should work great. If you want to be able to make simple changes or try other filaments other than PLA Finder is not a good choice.

Ive actually had the Flashforge finder for a month now. Your information is misleading. You can change temps. You can set a temp change in the slicer at set heights. You can also set heights to pause and change the filament. Ive also used a wide range of 3rd party PLAs including wood filament. Sure i'm limited to PLA, but i've not regretted the purchase once.

Thats a good one too!
I think its the best and most priceworthy out of the box printer.

Indeed, and I worry about any open air abs printer due to warping.

Hey, Im not sure how this works but would I be free to open some parts and join them together as one piece? Ie the controller cups and the bracket to save glueing and magnets and move the screw hole to fit a shaft i already have? Sorry first time on this site and was looking for Oculus touch cups but not a whole rig :) Dont want to offend anyone etc..
Thanks

Feel free to do whatever you want, thats what the remix feature is for :)

Oh cool I'll publish whatever I end up with sure :)

Can you make the rails slightly shorter. I have a 6 in printer and it's just barely to high.

I have a 6 inch printer too and I can print all parts.
Try to make the brim / skirt / raft smaller if you are using those.

Let me give it a shot. My build is 5 x 5 x 6. Trying the stock vertical now with supports.

Actually a few parts are too big. Nvm

Ive been printing at 10% so far and only had issues with one of the main rails but I think it was the printer and not the infill.

whats settings did you have when you printed this?
infill/supports?
pla/abs?

and how snug of a fit are those cups for the touch controls? do they snap in?

The rail is the only part that i managed to break so far but its easy to fix with some glue.
I printed the rails little warmer to stick the layers together a little extra.
Infill at least 25%. A friend did 60% but then it gets really heavy and takes forever to print.

You would get extra durability if you can print the rails laying down. But there could be warping issues then.
But I printed mine standing to be able to print 3 at once.

Used standard support for the overhanging parts

The cups are pretty tight fit, I tried looser fits first but then the controllers just skated around and in the cups.

im using a Anet A8 3D Printer, Prusa i3

Q: how much 3D Printer Filament do i need printing at 30% im using HATCHBOX 3D PLA-1KG1.75-BLK PLA 3D Printer Filament, Dimensional Accuracy +/- 0.05 mm, 1 kg Spool, 1.75 mm, Black. https://www.amazon.com/HATCHBOX-3D-PLA-1KG1-75-BLK-Filament-Dimensional/dp/B00J0ECR5I/ref=pd_bxgy_328_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&refRID=NFRSTF8DPZZ8W4SD0GFA&th=1

/????? thanks Zip

ahh i see. thanks for that info.
is the magnetic attach functionality still in at all?
i cant see where the magnets would go just from the pictures, or have you edited out that part from the remix

The magnet holes are still there, so you could try it if you want. But I couldnt find any magnet strong enough to support the rail by itself when I removed one of the controllers

Nice work, can we get some updated photos that show you actually holding it?
looking to print this in a week or so. thanks

Sure I'll add some more photos later today

thanks mate

Added two pictures while aiming through the scope.
The only thing that bothered me with this design is that the rail gets in the way when I'm reloading.
You have to do the movement slighty from the side in to the gun since the rail is right under.

excellent photos.
thanks for that.

the set up you have now, is that final? or do you have any updates in mind?

Im happy with it now.
Just played some games with it and the extra stability is awesome.
Its little tricker to reload and grab the sidearm but you will get used to it.
