The 3D models for our nxtVR headset!

The vis3r 3D models

Basic printing instructions

The headset is made of three main components, some of which have multiple parts. The entire design is purpose made to print with no supports. You shouldn’t need to use a Skirt either, although a small Brim is probably a good idea.

The Visual_Guide, Screen_Holder and Lens_Slides

As these incorporate screw threads and sliding components, you need to print with these settings:

  • NO SUPPORTS
  • 95% Infill
  • 2 perimiter walls
  • 4 Top Layers, 4 bottom layers

There is actually very few “thick” areas, so they are very lightweight. A layer height of 0.2 or 0.24 is fine for these

The Main Body

As long as you print this with 2 perimiter walls, you can drop the infill down to 5% – & you will still find that they are rock solid. Again, they are designed specifically to print with NO SUPPORTS. Because they are almost completely hidden by the Outer_Shell, you can easily print these with a layer height of 0.24 or 0.28, and I would definitely not advise any lower than 0.2

  • NO SUPPORTS
  • 5% Infill
  • 2 perimiter walls
  • 4 Top Layers, 4 bottom layers

The Outer Shell

The Outer Shell is basically a twin wall shell with a four layer lip at the bottom. As it has nothing that could ever be described as “thick”, you can print it with these settings:

  • NO SUPPORTS
  • 95% Infill
  • 2 perimiter walls
  • 4 Top Layers, 4 bottom layers

Again, a layer height of 0.2 works beautifully for this, although even with 0.24 and 0.28 it’s hard to tell the difference.

The Fasteners

The Main Body is clipped together with eight round pegs and two triangular bars. These are not load bearing and as such can also very happily be printed with our 5% infill, twin perimiter wall and four top/bottom layers.
