Introduction: Dodocase for People With Glasses

About: Love 3D printing, 3D modelling, FabLabs, DIY and DIT, crazy about EV's!

During the Instructables build night of October at FabLab Breda we had a great time playing around with the Dodocase. Such a great adapt of the Google Cardboard.

Only problem that I encountered: it is too small for people like me wearing glasses.... So I downloaded the lasercut files from Google Cardboard (the attached file on this site) and changed the width, the lens mounts (the Dodocase attaches the lenses with a sticker, Google cardboard squeezes them between 3 pieces of cardboard, I prefer the Dodocase solution) and added an option to connect elastic bands to it, so you don't have to hold it all the time :)

Step 1: Lasercutting the Changed File

I used Coreldraw to adapt the drawings. Red lines are for engraving/kisscutting, black lines are to be cut. Use a nice cardboard that isn't too thick (~1,5 mm).

Step 2: Assemble

Assemble the case just as if it's a regular Dodocase. Add some elastic bands to wear the case without using your hands.

Step 3: Happy VR'ing While You Wear Your Glasses :)

Enjoy your bigger Dodocase :)

    very nice, i found a copy of this on thingiverse, sadly the dimensions didnt come through for our lasercutter. but after some scaling tweaking i made myself a pair handy too for those of us with wide faces too.
