Hey Guys,
Just a quick update. After much trial and error, I have the HMS enclosure and HMD specific mounts complete. Nothing fancy to look at. I just made it as small and functional as possible for now. The HMS enclose snaps into the HMD specific mount which is attached with double face tape. The 3D prints look better in person than in the pics and the finish is still a WIP.

@ RatCatcher, I am not entirely happy with the box look of the FCU either, but we are really limited by LiPo battery. I may be able to put a bit more of a radius on the upper edges. My goal was to make the FCU narrow enough for people with smaller fingers and have it not interference with the joystick. In the future I may look at a lower design profile that extends further up the hand.

@Marineer3302. I am currently using a XYZ Davinci 1.0. I think its about 4 years old and I did not have much use for it until now. I have 4 CNC machines in my shop and never thought much of 3D printing until I got into this project.
The sheer speed to go from CAD to print is remarkable, The CAM phase, and setup for CNC operations is time consuming. Ther is also much more design flexabilty with 3d printing than traditional milling. I am sold on it, and still deciding on my requirements for a production 3d printer.

@ FoxDelta, I certainly would consider sharing stl files with customers in the future.

Every day we get a little closer. Its just taking much longer than I anticipated. I am working on PointCTRL full time, but it’s just me, thanks for your patience. Please feel free to share all observations and feedback, to include negative ones that can may contribute to a better product.
Thanks
Miles

Here are some rough prints that don’t represent the final product surface finish.

Looking great Miles! Good to see progress. Are you confident that you got the Vive lighthouse interference sorted out?

Il2 does not have clickable cockpit so I would say no but it should work with xplane

I received 2 Steam VR 2.0 lighthouses today for interference testing with PointCTRL. They are really amazing tech. There is no problem filtering out the coded lasers carrying the positional data. My only concern is PointCTRLs IRLED interfering with the lighthouse comms with the vive pro. Since it operates on a very high carrier freq, I don't see it being a problem as long as PointCTRLs PWM dimmer is tuned to a different freq.

Here a few pics of the Vive HMD mount.

Thanks, Miles
