Simple Snap on Iphone case that has Power and Volume buttons reproduced on the edges of the case. Front and back edges are rounded for a comfortable grip. Simple and secure fit. (Has been tested)


While not a direct derivative, I liked the case Helmi74 created and I wanted to add a few features. I recreated the case from scratch and added buttons on the outside. Also the front and back edges are rounded, which I think makes it a bit more comfortable to hold.

After printing, take a fine hobby knife and clear out any threads that my interfere with the button clearance. Rub some sandpaper around any sharp edges, and give it a good cleaning to remove dust and debris.

Pop in your Iphone 5 and enjoy!

Ok, well I printed this and it was a very snug fit, needed some small sanding but otherwise great job. The small bridge on the buttons snaps easily when putting your phone in, almost guaranteed to break unfortunately without some glue. I also recommend printing this the other way up.. yes I know this did not need support this way but the print on the underside of the case is horrible (raft side) but the inside looks perfect, so I flipped it and reprinted and it came out much better, just took a bit longer.

This looks awesome! Does it fit better than that "customizable" one that everyone seems to post?

It does for really well. However this was an earlier design I made. The buttons work ok but get in the way of the "silent mode" switch a little bit. I would suggest you check out the one from my IPhone cradle arm. It has a more secure lip all the way around. It's what's on my iPhone right now. Plus if you so want the cradle. It snaps right in.
