3D printed case

Hey Guys,

I didn't get to work on this at all this week.  I'm sorry.  The good news is that I ordered a batch of PCTPE.  This is a flexible rubber like material.  I'll see if my design will work with this material and if not I'll have to make a design for it.  That being said, I'll have a hard case and a soft case.  No guarantees for being able to work on it this week.  I have a lot on my plate work wise.

Sounds interesting 👍 Did you notice the request in this thread? https://community.fxtec.com/topic/2933-buy-fxtec-pro1-compatible-case

Hi Goodman_ J,  do you mind sharing the stl file of the protective case, so that it can be a foundation for us to work on,  and we can print it on our own.  Thank you.

Hey Ban,

This is going to sound real douchey.  I apologize but I don't make a habit of sharing my files.  I have seen it too many times where people have used other peoples work for their own gain.  Please understand that I have put a lot of hours into this project and have put serious thought and effort into its design and conception.  That being said, I don't mind printing them out for people though.  I understand that protective cases for a phone (especially one as rare as the Pro1 with a physical keyboard) are incredibly important for the people who have doled out a sizable amount of money for the purchase of said phone and that is precisely why I ventured to create such a case.  I thank everyone for understanding and patience.

Hi Everyone,

Latest update.  I took Eskerahn's suggestions and made the fillets larger for the button/charger/earphones.  Eskerahn also asked about the speaker cutout and my wife wanted a place to put charms for her phone.  So I combined the two.  See pics below.  The print quality was not as good as it was before but that is because I made a mistake and printed at a lower density.  Will be printing a brand new set next weekend for the wife and I will be inheriting her old case.  I haven't worked with the PCTPE yet.

As I mentioned before we don't utilize the fingerpring reader so our cases do not include it in the cutout but that can be addressed for those who require it.  I did not get to read through the requests made in the thread in a link shared by Eskerahn.  I will try to do so as I get the time.

Random question, would your wife happen to be @sequestris by any chance?

No problem at all, goodman_j.   I've attached an stl file that I worked with.   I haven't finish it yet, but hope that others can work on it as well.   

Pro1.11 keyboard with all.holes. correct side 2.25.stl

@goodman_j

 

I would like to buy 2 or 3 of your cases.  Please let me know how much you would like per case and how I can send you $.

 

Thanks jason

We have very high end 3D-printing facilities in our University, which students can use. Has anyone tested out some models which could be production ready?

Not that I am experienced 3D-printer, but this might be a good starting point to learn when you have some already validated models to use 🙂

@goodman_j, would you mind selling the stl file for personal use so that I can print it myself? We have 3D printers at the university with free (but limited) filament, so I'd love to print it myself. I don't know where you're based, but international shipping will most likely cost an arm and a leg.

Please also note that stl files are like binaries - it's very difficult to make derivative models out of an stl, because it just describes a bunch of triangles. Theoretically, you can do a 3D scan to get an STL. To do any derivative models you basically need the sources.

@goodman_j hey there,

 

With LOS stable nearly ready to go (yay!) I'm actually faced with the prospect of carrying my Clack in a flip case....not as idyllic as I thought it would be. Are you in a position to sell any phone cases?

Any new layouts? 🙂

I want to modify one to fit RTL-SDR receiver, angled USB-C connector with some circuitry and SMA connector for the antenna.
