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

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

They look good, Thank you once again. I'll take them for a test drive shortly.

I've been making progress on the 3d modelling front but they still all end up messy in the renders. Your work is appreciated.

im still making changes will show the progress later

Wow, just looked at the photo thinking in a thread of phones with keyboard attachment and thought what a good looking phone attached to a good separate keyboard in a flip case... 😄

Would you mind sharing the sources? I have issues with the shape of the headphones holes, which is partially covering the mini jack socket, and I'd like to tinker with it and try to fix it myself. Thanks!

I'll upload my photos in a while btw.

It looks like bottom v4 already contains the fix that I wanted to do. I'll print it within several weeks and report.

Meanwhile, these are the photos of my previous print. Because the mini-jack socket was partially covered by the case, I used some pliers to cut out the covering surface. Another thing that didn't go quite well is the upper part of the bottom case - I only used supports on the build plate and I should've also used them inside, so the upper rim is a little frayed - but it holds well enough.

The case was also battle-tested for the first time, the phone once fell screen down onto asphalt from about 30 centimeters and survived unscathed.

Thanks @ubuntuscofield! Do you accept donations?

20210411_165503_edit.jpg

Just received my case from a 3d printing company in UK. It was printed as PLA-(FDM) as that still came to about £40 for two as theres a minimum order limit.   I was going to be charged about £15 just to print 1 top and another £15 for 1 bottom if I did it in TPU. I used ubuntuscofield may20 designs but I cant get the phone into the case it seems brittle and really does not look like it fits. See pictures. Has it been printed wrong or does it need a lot of force to put in? I cant seem to get it in at all.

Well I cannot get the top or bottom of this case to fit my phone. 

I purchased the two different top versions.

One of the corners of the top has the internal part filled in the full top design, and its not filled in in the cut out top design. but neither of the tops fit so thats not the problem.

Is there a recommended way to try to put it on eg from a certain corner etc. while phone is fully open or paritally?

I am thinknig the printing company has made a mistake, are there any recommended companies in UK to get this done. It is quite annoying to spend £40 to get a case printed and it not fit, when it works for you?

Thanks.

Guessing here: Could it be that the case was intended to be printed in a rather elastic material, and that would make it easier to put it on?

I am not familiar with 3D printing but sometimes some adjustments are also made in the slicer which may also needed to do some compensation between different 3D printers...

Unfortunately it does need to be printed in TPU. PLA is to rigid for this type of phone case.
