We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Printing an iPhone accessory seems to be a normal thing around Thingiverse. When I stumbled across Boardofdenver's original, whilst looking for iPhone cases, I thought it was clever. Damn clever.
There however were three problems I found with the design:
It would take up to 8 hours for my MakerBot Thing-O-Matic to print.
It had so much extraneous plastic both for support and in the object itself.
I set a few goals for my redesign:
I'm happy to say I delivered after 13 hours of design work from AutoCAD, TinkerCAD and Sketchup.
Next Iteration Goals:
Add Sound Amplification Horns
Horns and/or cups under speaker holes to bounce sound up and away like many seen here on Thingiverse
On the end it works great. I'm pleased and it serves my purpose well.
Thanks Boardofdenver for a really great design.
