  • Publication number: 20200301153
    Abstract: A Near-Eye-Display (NED) device having a housing shell that is integrated with molded boss clusters for precision mounting of hardware components. The techniques disclosed herein include forming a housing shell directly over one or more pre-molded boss clusters that have been inserted into cavities of a housing shell mold core. For example, with the pre-molded boss clusters already inserted into the cavities, a selected housing shell material such as a thermosetting epoxy resin impregnated carbon fiber reinforced (CFRP) fabric may be thermal compression molded over the housing shell mold core. Individual ones of the pre-molded boss clusters include one or more “three-dimensional (3D)” bosses for mounting various hardware components of the NED device. The bosses may protrude from an inner surface of the housing shell and may provide interior mounting features without affecting the appearance of the outer surface of the housing shell.
