Acrylic Wall Mount for Oculus Quest (Design Files)

Here are the files for my Oculus Quest wall mount design. I cut the mount from Proofgrade Thick Green Glass Acrylic and, the heat forms from Proofgrade Medium Draftboard, all with stock settings.

I am sharing these under the standard terms for this section of the forum: personal use only. Contact me if you want to do something commercial with this.

The red-brown and purple outlines are the main cuts. I just used the standard Thick Acrylic Proofgrade settings for those. I separated them out of habit for preferring to cut from the inside out.

The pale green rectangles are for position of the Command Strips, if you want to use those. You probably don’t want to cut or score them.

If you want to use screws to mount it instead, the gray circles would be engraved to an appropriate depth for the heads of the screws with the inner red circles cut through. These were set up for #6 screws. I didn’t go this route. So, you are on your own for the appropriate engrave settings. Ideally, you would run tests on a scrap.

I cut the forms from Medium Draftboard. Any inexpensive 1/8” thick wood-based stock should work fine.

The easiest way to understand making the bends is to watch the video. Basically, you want to localize the heat to where you want each bend as much as possible and, brace adjacent areas you don’t want bent or deformed to keep them from bending. Bending the main necks of the controller hooks before turning up the ends of the prongs is probably best. It is likely also easier to bend the controller hooks without the central hook being in the way of setting it down flat.

This is all also on my website but, there is nothing there that is not here except referral links.

Nice design, and solution to keep the hardware off of the desk! :sunglasses:
That green glass acrylic rocks for anything one might use clear for.

I don’t have an Oculus Rift. But I watched the whole thing anyway. To garner Techniques on bending and cutting acrylic. Very nice, thank you.

Do you think this could be used for the HTC Vive? I would love to get it off the floor of my boys room! Lol!

You could certainly give it a shot!

I don’t have a Vive with which to test it. Looking at photos, the headset hook should work. The hangers for the controllers might need adjustment.

You could cut one out of corrugated cardboard (like from a shipping box)[1] and, get a feel for if it would work from that, before you make it in acrylic.

[1] Watch your machine carefully when cutting cardboard and acrylic since those are optimal for starting a fire.

Thank you so much!

I made one as a gift for a friend… they were thrilled.

This was my first time bending acrylic, and I found the video very helpful.

Looks great! Good work!

Thank you so much for sharing your process. Using forms to bend is a much better plan than mine of Winging It! ::slight_smile:
