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

Hey guys.  Just wanted share the case I printed out for my wife.  She wanted a functional opening case that would protect her phone and won't fly off when it opens.  After many attempts I was able to

Hi, I just wanted to share my simple back cover here :) You can download STL and F3D files from Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4617029  

Hello, again. I also made a bumper case 🙂 It helps me to avoid touching screen edges by accident. I also noticed that I could hold Pro1 securely because FDM printed layer lines work to prevent

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.

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.

@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.

I'm probably going to modify it some more and tweak my print settings to make it a lot nicer and possible do some post print finishing.  

 

Hi,

you have done awesome work..

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000419201477.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.410b4541N2cH0U&algo_pvid=a95b10b0-9d22-4dc9-b47c-5de5dab0f10d&algo_expid=a95b10b0-9d22-4dc9-b47c-5de5dab0f10d-27&btsid=0ab6d69515979734164406840e6c58&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_

Try something frame less like this..so it will solve the hole and notch problem for side at least..

Thanks
