Like any 3d Printed adapters, and headstraps, use at your own risk!
Originally Made for the Pimax 5K+/8K Headset using measurements from @UnholyBeardedOne at Pimax Forums, and 'image-reverse engineered' from video stills from mixedrealityTV and SweViver. Not all measurements are done with a caliper.
This Refined version is improved upon using materials that come with the Pimax: This includes the wire velcro that comes with the headset, that can be used to connect the adapter buckle to the headset.
Shortening the Hinges, making some of the scaling correct, and making it easier to insert into the headset.
Tolerance for the model should be around 0.1 mm for the side hinges rod parts, while the DAS Adapter parts parts should fit snug, but it you have a very very accurate printer, you may need to glue some parts together. Using pliers you can connect the
Suggested Materials: PETG, as it is flexible enough for some of the actions required for assembly. ABS may work, but it may be a bit too stiff, while PLA might be a bit too brittle. Tests are needed.
PETG is a bit of a tricky material for briding, depending on your brand and your printer cooling, you could technically do it without supports, but it may be a tricky without sacrificing measurements abit. But it is a suggested material, as it can take quite a bit of strength. These parts have been tested supporting upto 15 kg of pulling force, which should be already way beyond the amount of force youd strap your head gear on you.
Suggested printing orientations:
- ImprovedDASAdapter.stl - 4 Pieces flat on the bed.
- ImprovedHinge.stl- 2x Sideways on bed
- ImprovedBuckle.stl - Flat on Bed
Supports is very dependent on what material is used, but PETG is suggested over ABS, mostly due to it being a softer material
