  1. I was thrilled when I read that there was a real open source competitor for the Oculus Rift. Even more when I saw that all schematics & drawings are shared so you could built your own VR headset!! How crazy is that?

    So I downloaded all schematics, drawings and component list for the OSVR Hacker Dev Kit... realizing that the schematics are made using orcad cadance PCB designer (can't open the brd file with Eagle) that costs a fortune , at least for the most of us. Why not use a more standard format like Gerber?

    Please Razer, share your schematics with us in Gerber format, so we can all build!

    Cheers,
    Dave

  3. Dave,
    All gerber files were placed in the root of the electronics folder of the latest builds:
    https://github.com/OSVR/OSVR-HDK/tree/master/HDK Ver 1.1/electronics

    Schematics are also distributed in PDF format for quick reference: GitHub\OSVR-HDK\HDK Ver 1.1\electronics\Schematics

    Allegro is pretty much the industry standard for producing boards.
    We are distributing the whole library with all board files, so that should be quite exciting, although I do understand that some other software doesn't always convert as expected.

    Feel free to openly discuss on the forum and ask any question. We have been thrilled by the opportunity to be able to share our work as we progress into it, and I'm sure you will find new goodies upcoming quite interesting!
     
  4. Much appreciated, thx!
