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.:)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
