Slim iPhone 5 and 5S Snap-On Case (tested)
by Helmi74, published
It has a very strong and edgy fit. You probably need to finetune your printer settings to get the correct measurement.
It was already finetuned and optimised. Look out to get the lastest version with the highest number at the end of the file name.

I just printed this with no scaling based on the instructions, but it is too small to fit my iphone 5 or my son's.
I have a solution!
Download the .skp file and open it in SketchUp (Pro or not, it doesn't matter)
Select the model
Under the edit menu, select "Solid group (1 model)", and click on "edit group"
Then, using the select tool, click on the inner edge of the circle (the height) and delete it, so that you can see "inside" the case.
Now, with the line (pencil) tool, draw a line straight across the circle on the top edge, which should fill it in. Erase the lines
Orbit to the bottom and repeat the last step, but on the bottom edge
With the select tool again, click outside the case. You're done!

I printed mine with a 0.35mm nozzle and 0.20mm layer height. Best Material to print with is PLA as it is stronger and holds the iPhone better.
There are different stls to download:
- iPhone5Case4 is the first public version
- iPhone5Case5 has a revised power button hole with a beveled edge for better accessibility and misses the bottom window. Your feedback is highly appreciated. I try to improve more.
- iPhone5Case6 another revised version with even more clearing on the power button and more bottom clearing at the volume/mute buttons and on the bottom of part of the phone (speakers/lightning). I also moved the back hole a bit to center the apple in it and added another clip for better fitting on the top.
Update 2012-09-24: I've uploaded another pic (multi color, all printed in PLA) and also the source file (sketchup) now, as v6 seems to fit very well. I would be really happy if you take the source and make derivates of it. I could imagine having an apple shape instead of the circular one on the back or maybe some other cutout designs with the back side - i hope you all be creative, that's what its for.
License changed from "no derivates" to NC-SA - go for it ;-)
