Thanks for sharing your comments, @db18. We’re hoping to compile all the tips and tricks, so it is much appreciated. Using acetone to clean up the markings is a good one.
I tried to access the instructions for the Slip-On-Table Clamp but it looks like it requires a login. Are you using heat to bend acrylic there?
Part of the challenge with mounting the LipSync is that significant forces are involved when the user interacts with it, so the mounting needs to be really rigid or the whole thing will move and flex. Would be interesting to test to see if the plastic clamp would provide enough resistance. Even if it isn’t a good match for the Lipsync, it may find good use for lighter objects.
This is and has been an ongoing challenge. I have some functional prototypes for connecting to round tubing and several types of the power chair rails. The plan is to make those designs available and get some more input and testing on them. Developing something that is easy to produce, easy to install, and holds rigidly has been a challenge.
We do have a design for a 1" RAM ball adapter for the Lipsync that has a 1/2" NPT thread. We should probably explicitly list it as an option for using RAM arms with PVC via a threaded adapter.
Similarly, we have some of the 1/2" NPT LocLine adapters and have tested using them in combination with PVC. I’m not sure how readily available those parts are relative to the tubing. LocLine does offer CAD models of many of their components, so if there is a specific size you think would be useful to make a custom 3d printed adapter, let us know.
