  1. How suitable is the Rii Mini i6 keyboard for a mobile phone? Does anyone else have another idea for a suitable keyboard? The reason I ask is that I wouldn't mind having a shot at designing a 3D printable case/hinge to fill the gap that FxTec has left us with. The benefit would be that we can use any phone with it with small adjustments. I'm thinking something similar to the Pro1(x) style as it is beautiful, though might be unattainable as it uses a half size keyboard. The width would be the real killer as it would add an extra ~6 to 10 mm to the phone/keyboard combo. This c
  2. I've updated the model to include a thicker version that works well with TPU. I've been using it for the last couple of weeks without any trouble. Ignore the card holder. It doesn't work for payments, it's too thick. I was thinking of adding a hex grid but that would also expose the card. 😕
  3. I'm currently doing this on Sailfish with Cellmon in Australia. One thing I have noticed is that I'm seeing a swap between 4G and 3G which IIRC I wasn't without Cellmon, It stayed purely on 4G or nothing. I'll test that later.
  4. I've just uploaded a new case with a cutout for the headphone jack. I would suggest printing in PETG to provide the extra stability. https://www.printables.com/model/267403-fxtec-pro1x-case
  5. I was initially designing with TPU in mind but it's easier to prototype in PETG. My main concern about TPU and my design is the lip around both halves isn't that big. I'll have to test it again. I will reintroduce the headphone jack as it possibly would be ok in PETG. I'll upload a new model shortly. Personaaly I don't mind the PETG feel, it reminds me of my Otterbox case I had for my N900.
  6. I have already included a model with the fxtec and sfos logos. I'm from Aus, I'll send you a pm.
  7. While I do agree with you, it's the unfortunate position of the camera cutout that was the deciding factor.
  8. Attached the printed case to a snakehive case with T7000. seems to work well.
  9. I've updated my models to support the new Pro1X. I've also added a small lip around the edges to match up with the bevel on the two halves. This does not interfere with the phone when closed as they sit just below the surface. Both halves now fit firmly against the phone with no movement when opening or closing. I would imagine they would survive a drop as well. (Not tested). https://www.printables.com/model/267403-fxtec-pro1x-case
  10. FYI. The USB port is higher up on the Pro1X. A case designed for the Pro1 wont suit it unless it's a full cutout to the edge. I'll update my model shortly.
  11. I would suggest PETG over PLA as it's a tight fit and that's what I've been prototying in. I would hold off on TPU for the moment, the fit isn't strong enough yet.
  12. https://www.printables.com/model/267403-fxtec-pro1x-case Feel free to let me know your thoughts, criticisms, tweaks. I'm already thinking it needs a bit more on top for screen protection. I've also done a template for cutting out screen protectors which I'll upload shortly. I haven't been able to find any that ship to Australia.
  13. I decided to make my own case as a learning experience. So far it's just the base as I wanted something to replace the plastic holder in my Snakehive case. I have not included the hole for the headphones as it would leave a gap in the upper edge of the case and reduced it's grip on the phone. I will upload the STL's onto Printables when they're ready. I'm still tweaking small measurements atm. pro1_case.mp4
  14. Unfortunately it does need to be printed in TPU. PLA is to rigid for this type of phone case.
