Phone cases modeling

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to make a phone case for my iphone 6 recently

The dimension is not hard to find as apple have released a guide for doing that,

but how many spaces between the cases and the phone you would leave? 0.3mm? 0.5mm?

and what is your frame thickness? 1mm? 1.5mm? or 0.5mm?

What materials would you suggest? ABS? Nylon? or even others?

Thanks!!

Hi

You could have more clearance over the total length like 0.5mm less for the width say .2mm and .1mm over the thickness.

Maybe ABS, XT or NGen as they have more flexibility than PLA. Nylon could be good but I'm not sure how easy it is to print.

For thickness maybe go a multiple of your nozzle width. So for a 0.4mm nozzle try 1.6mm for sides top and bottom.

Good luck and show us the final print.:)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
