iPhone 4 Case by laird Sep 10, 2012


This is a modification of an iPhone 4 case that I found on Thingiverse, which I modified to make it wrap around the iPhone 4 better (made it 1mm taller). And I cut out my initials because it kinda looks cool. This thing was made with Tinkercad. Edit it online tinkercad.com/things/bcDNf8u1Tqu . In particular, if you make a copy and tinker it, you can ungroup it and make your own personalized cutout.

I'm not sure which iPhone case this is derived from. If you recognize let me know and I'll credit it appropriately.

Did you model this with a maker bot?

Oh, one thing to keep in mind - if you put your own initials in, the initials have to read properly from below the bottom of the case, so the letters have to be "backwards" if you are looking at the front of the case. Obvious in retrospect, but didn't catch it until printing one (looked fine on screen, where I was looking at the front of the case)...

I guess I needed to be more specific. The model is in TinkerCAD, so that anyone can put their own initials in the case, or whatever else they want. If you go to the link you can make a copy and tinker with that.

if you ungroup the model, you can remove the initials, swap in your own, or do whatever you want with "holes". Then re-group it, so the holes cut through the case.

Think about it.

Yeah, but he did link to TinkerCAD, so it's super easy to edit the initials out, or replace them with your own. Even if you've never used any kind of imaging software in your life, you can use TinkerCAD.
