Did some more prototyping today! Here you can see all three versions. Its very cool how a 3D printer enables me to prototype like this! Imagine if I had to file these from steel or carve them from wood, I would have needed days for only one.
First one was made in Blender and thus pretty much unmodifiable and also wrong in its dimension (which was my mistake). Number two and three were made in the trial version of Fusion 360 (CAD). Thought it would be harder to get into it, but the program is surprisingly intuitive, especially if you have some experience in Blender and a technical background.
V2 was not very good to print and had some issues with the faces where the belt would be held, which I fixed for V3 (lowermost). I am happy enough with the last one. The belt sits flush with the surface of the puck and runs nicely over my ears when I hold it to my head.
Next step is to produce the short belts directly connected to the puck, like the piece I have laid out in the picture. I will need to line them with leather or something so the screw presses onto them nice and even, and so that it does not rip.
