Monogram(able) Honeycomb iPhone 5 case by CrazyJaw Dec 10, 2012

Description

The3DLibrary's honeycomb case, but with a personalized flare. I also cleaned up the hooks and dimensions so it hooks into the phone much more securely.

Did you use the Replicator 2?
Pretty quick. I think even on high .1 layer height detail, it's about 40 minutes. Could probably be 20 minutes on low detail.

Instructions

You can use the blank version on tinkercad ( https://tinkercad.com/things/3iPTEe37yu8-iphone-5-case) to add whatever letters/symbols you like, or import the included stl into your favorite cad software.

I printed with .1 layer height, 100% infill, no raft/support. Note that the dimensions have been optimized around ABS and its shrinkage, so your scalage may vary.

How long does it take to make?

I reprinted after putting on new tape. It printed but lifted every so slightly at the 80% complete mark. I managed to hold the corners down while the print head passed over., but one side cracked. But super glue fixed that and my iPhone 5 fits. I'm using the ABS black plastic that came with the Replicator. I have three sides blanked in by paper. Only the front and top is open. But I might try the full enclosure later.
Thanks for the design.
I made one adding my initial into the circle with tinkercad. Unfortunately it lifted at one corner during the printing, so it's not quite right yet.  The area around the opening for the power button got squished . WIll try again or perform surgery on this one. But it is  a cool case
Hmm, mine had slight issues with one corner lifting as well, though i chalked it up to ABS's shrinkage. I should double check that its laying truly flat in the slt (make sure you hit that "lay flat" button in repG). 

Are you using ABS? its sort of a delicate print, and i dont think i could do it without an enclouser (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26063) or precise leveling (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:23257)
