Hvaing long play sessions and party sessions with friends the original strap starts getting annoying and not really comfortable, especially the re-adjusting it to every players head for a good fit and view through the lenses.
I saw the welding mask mods but I wanted to try and build it myself, so after a lot of trail and error I found a system that works great.
The straps can be adjusted to fit most head sizes and tightened with a ratchet knob in the back. It tightens and loosens with the knob with will stay in place when tightened.
I pirinted all black parts in TPC filament for a flexible fit and all the other parts in PETG and PLA for stiffness.
The straps on the side of the head go high enough so a full size headphone will fit without any problem.
Don't have a printer yourself? Contact me on my Etsy store and I'll be happy to print it for you:
REAL TPC / PETG / PLA
Black / Red / Silver
TPC used is black
PETG used is red
PLA used is silver
The PLA parts can also be printed in PETG and vice versa.
Print most parts once except for the ones that have "2x" on the end, print those twice.
After printing you can assemble everything with M3 dome head screws and some nuts of your choosing.
When your most optimal fit has been achieved use some foam on the inside to line the straps with so you don't have screws pressing into your skull and break your immersion.
