3D Printing

The parts for this project are designed to be 3D printed with FDM based machines. STL files are oriented to print "as is". Parts require tight tolerances that might need adjustment of slice settings. Reference the suggested settings below.

CAD Files

The parts can further be separated into small pieces for fitting on printers with smaller build volumes. Note: a STEP file is included for other 3D surface modeling programs such as Onshape, Solidworks and Rhino.

Custom Supports Plugin for CURA

We suggest installing the custom supports plugin for CURA. This provides a tool for adding custom supports to models. To install the plugin, click on the Marketplace button, top right of the app window. Search for "custom supports" and download the plugin. Make sure to have the latest version of CURA installed.

TPU Flexible Parts

The goggle case and cover are designed to be printed in TPU filament. The goggle-case.stl part requires support material to print properly. The included .3mf file contains pre-configured slice settings for CURA slicing software. Support material is included and does not need to be added with the .3mf project file.

Rotary Case

The rotary-case-left.stl and rotary-case-right.stl parts requires support material as well. This part should be printed in PLA, not ninjaflex. The .3mf project file contains pre-configured slice settings and custom supports. Both parts feature mounting hole for the rotary encoder. You can choose which side to mount the rotary encoder.
