What a great thread & effort! I realize you may not want to jump back into an element of this, but if you'd like I'd happily disassemble and take calipered measurements of the right lens adapters. In the meantime, it might be useful for people in the future to have a clear shot of them in this thread:

1. Amazing job

2. Thanks so much for sharing the files

3. I see you wear glasses. Do the original frames fit over your glasses. I printed a frame on Thingiverse but they definitely don't fit over my glasses so just wondering.
Sorry, I haven't peeked in on this thread for a while. Thanks for the compliments.

I cannot wear these goggles over my glasses. I just have them ride on my head. As I wrote, I built these to add some bling to my costume when someone takes a picture of me from the front.

I'd note that the foam padding starts to come unglued with the goggles sitting on my head for hours, like at a convention. My body heat loosens up the rubber cement. Real contact cement would work better, but I only had rubber cement on hand at the time.

I (and I'm sure the group) would certainly welcome clear photos and measurements of the right lens. With such reference it wouldn't take that long to tweak my 3D model. I don't know that I'd be up for printing a new set of lenses unless there was a horrible discrepancy, but the model would be out there for others.

Thanks.

Very AWESOME the finish on the paint looks amazing..... did I miss the part where you mentioned where you got the snaps?
The small snaps around the perimeter (into which the "official" padded piece would snap) were molded into the second, cruddier set of goggle frames I got off of eBay. That was the main reason I bought that second goggles frame, despite those snaps being somewhat corroded. All of the big snaps except one on the right side were also already attached to the goggles, though those are standard snaps you can get most anywhere.

At some point in the next week or so I'll post a few more photos that detail my finishing of the prop.

Since this post has the best 3d files for gogles eyepieces that I have found, it inspired me to make my own set of ecto-goggles. I couldnt find an STl for the actual goggle that I liked, so I did some research, found some good reference pictures and some basic dimensions, and made my own base goggle 3D model. It is by no means a complete, but an experienced builder should have little trouble making it into finished goggles.

I found the on-off switch for the PVS-5A Night Vision Goggles on ebay recently and used the measurements taken from the part to make STL files. Here are the files if anyone wants them.

I also came across this page of good reference images.
