This is a minimalist cover for an Ipod Touch 5th Generation.
It protects the corners and still allows access to all buttons, the lightning port connector, and the headphone jack.
It also does not obstruct the camera lense, camera flash, or the speaker.
Note that I needed to print this at a .15mm layer height for it to cleanly print the overhang which "grabs on" to the front of the ipod to hold it in place securely.


  1. Flip and lay flat with the "X" side down. Print with a hi-resolution layer height for best results (I used .15mm layer height.) A support or raft is NOT necessarily needed.
  2. Simply snap on to your Ipod touch.
  3. Once installed on your own Ipod, print another and put it on your friends Ipod touch 5th generation.
  4. Test it by dropping your friends Ipod touch on any hard surface!

i want to change the colour, how do i do that

Simple, change the filament that you print with.

Printed on a Replicator 2 and found the case was slightly too small for the iPod Touch. Increasing the size by 1% seemed to be about enough to get it right.

How did you adjust the size? I'll probably need steps.

If you want to change size, you'll need to increase or decrease 'scale' in your slicer prior to printing. Otherwise, it looks like you published one. Modify the size in your design software to accommodate the changes.

how long did it take to print

Its a fairly quick print. I've printed at 120mm/s with .15mm layer height and is prints in just under 18 minutes. Your mmv.
