This is a lens holder for the Durovis Dive that uses larger lenses. The lenses are easier to adjust than the stock ones, and provide a much better overall field of view.

This is currently arranged for my 56mm IPD, but can be adjusted for others in Solidworks. If you would like an STL of other sizes please let me know.

This uses the same lenses as the FOV2GO. I got them from some magnifiers sourced at Fry's Electronics, but they can also be found on Amazon.

This magnifier is the UltraOptix SV-2LPLED 7X Aspheric LED Lighted Magnifier.

This mod is a major improvement over the stock Dive lenses, and I highly suggest you try it. With this simple modification, the Durovis Dive is a truly great mobile phone VR headset.

This was a great inspiration! I have just bought some ultra cheap magnifiers from the supermarket and now I am printing some adapters for them. First try looks way better than with the original ones. Was searching for a way on how to improve the Dive for long time.

But I found out that the magnifiers get foggy too fast. If this happens you can just "cream" them with some dishwashing gel (here in Germany this would be "Pril"). But dont use a cheap one as those do not work properly. Finish/Polish it with a paper towel and they will be fog free.

Btw. if you remove the bridge in the middle, they will be universal again.

If you ended up making a 63mm IPD of this, could I get a copy of that file? Thanks! I just ordered the lenses, I am so glad you made this!

Hi there,

I'm keen to get one of these printed but my IPD is 63mm. Could I trouble you to adjust the file?


I am a VR enthusiast but know nothing about CAD.
You say that the IPD can be adjusted in SolidWorks. I have SolidWorks now but don't know how to change the IPD. Do I have to make an adjustment to the geometry myself, or is this somehow a parameter of the file?
Thanks in advance.
