2017-02-02 (Th) Head-Mounted Display

a 3D model was designed to hold the display precisely where it will be most visible. Hopefully. The parts were simple and meant to connect with a small threaded rod then glued to the glasses. Movement was only meant to be possible along the horizontal axis and to be able to tilt the screen on the vertical axis. XZ

Rotating view of model

Two of the parts were meant to travel along threaded rods. These holes were tapped so they could accept the threads. A standard 4-40 tap was used but a metric size and a metric threaded rod would work as well.

Threading a printed part

All the parts were assembled with the threaded rod and some short bolts. The short bolts were not visible but they hold the hollow rectangle to the pieces below.

Assembled parts

After assembly, it became clear the design would not fit on the glasses frame. A smaller design will have to be created for it to work.

Glasses with the parts that won't fit
