Exaclty the same model as the Geneva Mechanism iPhone(5) case, but fited on an iPhone 4 case.

All this is is a merge between http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:31027 and http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:40479, so all credits to them!


Print the two stl files. The case (iPhone4Geneva_r3.stl) should be printed at 1.01 scale or else it will not fit in the iphone (due to the model of the iPhone 4 case).

If you want the openscad source (of the merge) download the zip file. You can apply the mask to any case you want!

There was a file missing in the ZIP file but it's been corrected.

It says it dosent have a mesh, By the way im new to 3d printing. Im in repetier on a printrbot jr v2

Just a thought:
Why don't you put "scale([1.01,1.01,1.01])" in the OpenSCAD file, and avoid the special instruction.

Is the same instruction as for the original case. But it is something useful.

Hmm, I'm trying to replicate your process but with another iPhone 4S case design. I'm running into trouble when OpenSCAD compiles the imported iPhone 5 geneva case. I see in your script it references a "genevacase5_r2.stl", but I can't find that model anywhere.

Is "genevacase5_r2.stl" a fixed version of "genevacase5.stl"? If so, could you upload it?

It's been done! Sorry for the inconvenience!

I just looked at your SCAD file, that approach is a great idea!

I saw the original version and said, i neet one of those XD. I see you had the same trouble!

YOU SHOULD SCALE the case to 1.01 before printing. Else it will not fit easily!!!!
