Owl Wrap by eagleapex Mar 17, 2009

Featured Thing!

Description

This was to fulfill a need I had to control my iPhone earbuds. You can see all the revision here: http://eagleapex.com/de/owl-wrap/ And after showing it around, I put it on Esty and have sold a few. The "O RLY?" is from my redrawing of Helvetica Neue UltraLight as single-line objects for vector etching.

Note: this doesn't fit the new Shuffle or iPhone 3GS earbuds with the 3 button remote. I'm working on an update.

Awesome design. Made this for my gf. Thanks for the idea.
This is great. I made 2 of them by hand out of a piece of plastic i had around. it took a bit of time and a few failed attempts but the results are worth it. Can't wait for the iPod touch 3G version. :)
This is so awesome! I really need to make one soon; my old headphones broke because I used to just bundle them up and stick them in my pocket all the time.

Cut this real slow/hot if you can so that the edges are not sharp. The red lines should be etched.

<p>860 downloads? What are you doing with it? Leave some pictures!</p>

<p>pretty sweet, i made two because the stock settings did not import into coraldraw right. if you cut with versalaser unser stock settings it comes out around 5 inches tall, i had to resize so the whole thing using the eyes as the main measuring point, took those down to about .45 ish to fit my skullcandys, then i opened up the 3.5 phono jack part to about 2.5inches, from there its came out pretty sweet, but i dont like the cord covering so much of the owl, i think im going to remake with the side protruding more so i can wrap the cord lower. :-D</p>

<p>Can anyone please give me the full dimensions of this? I would love to make one for my girlfriend and right now easiest way for me would be to autoCAD it and send thru a 3D printer. Any help is greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>Just download the EPS file. it's to size.</p>

<p>This lovely little owl works great!</p>

<p>Perfect! I'll just add a little so I can make it a keychain and it's done. Great work. :-D</p>

<p>seriously cool! i may have to switch back to earbuds just to use it. =)</p>

<p>My earbuds keep breaking, but they're under warranty each time! It's the button, nothing to do with wrapping.</p>
