Just a few days ago, Apple launched sales of its mixed reality headset, the Vision Pro, in the USA. It didn’t take long for the first 3D-printed accessories for the new device to appear. Here are 5 free accessories you can download as 3D models at no cost.
1. Dual Solo Band Adapter for Vision Pro
These brackets allow for the attachment of a second Apple Solo Band at the top of the head, significantly increasing comfort and fit, especially for those with smaller heads. The brackets clip onto the existing Solo Bands on the sides, securely holding the second band in place. According to the designer, this also allows for better height adjustment of the headset.

2. Vision Pro Audio Strap Adapter for Meta Quest 3
These adapters allow the use of Meta Quest 3’s audio straps with the Apple Vision Pro headset. Thanks to integrated recesses, the adapters fit snugly onto the original arms of the Apple headset. The designer states that this adapter significantly improves the wearing experience while lying down by distributing the weight more evenly.

3. Battery Mounts with Powerbank Extension for Vision Pro
This section introduces two models for additional batteries – a small clip for the original Apple battery and a larger mount compatible with many external powerbanks. This allows for a significant extension of runtime for long VR sessions. Additionally, the larger battery ensures better weight distribution.

4. Cap Mount for Vision Pro
This clip allows the Vision Pro headset to be easily attached to the brim of a baseball cap or hat, removing further weight from the head and, according to the designer, making it very comfortable to wear over longer periods.

5. Integrated Battery Mount for Vision ProThis accessory integrates an additional battery into the rear Solo Band of the Vision Pro headset, similar to a powerbank. This noticeably improves balance and reduces the perceived weight on the head. Moreover, it allows for wireless use of the headset without the limitations of cables.
