    I wear glasses and with every new HMD I buy (N+1 right?) I have to also buy prescription lenses for my HMD. So this time I decided to look for and print my own. Unfortunately I could not find a good DIY adapter so I made my own.

    I want to share my adapter for others to use if they wish, and of course I will also share the original solidworks files so you can make changes to fit whatever lenses that you use. If you repost these anywhere please give credit and DO NOT SELL THEM AS YOUR OWN DESIGN, or even sell them at all. Create your own from scratch (lens pun intended).

    This adapter simply snaps in and is held by the friction between the outside frame and the stock lens bezel. A little pressure is needed to snap it in place but it holds firmly. I put the point of the angle in first and then lay the back side in.

    I simplified the design to not have a groove as it is very hard to get the lenses into a groove with the type of plastic that I use (PETG) considering I use a .75 nozzle for rapid prototyping. You can add a ring that would make a very nice retainer groove with perhaps a .2 or .3 ring...ok...I should have done that now that I think about it...might on V1.00000001

    This adapter is designed for use with the Zenni Optical round lenses (9.99 USD). I have ordered several pair (one for each of the computers that I have in the house) and all are 44mm in diameter. I have read elsewhere that lenses are sometimes 41mm across. Those will also work with these adapters. I used a piece of thick tape as a shim to make the lenses fit firmly in place in the adapters.

    The adapter shape is the same for either eye so there is no need to make a left and right. (There is actually a very slight variation in the stock lenses but I made the adapter to fit either way).
