does it need support

non sense haha i just have autocad since im a student at asu. it took me a while to think of the right way to make it work and to make it useable.

Note that i also redesigned the Big Yoda cover with your V2 cover.

I printed this with 100% infill, Solo up (obviously) and 0.15mm layer height, no extra-shell.
On the version i printed, i previously increased the size of the holes around the power and volume buttons, but was still not great.

So, i put an other version (but fully blank for you to play with) of the cover with additional clearances around the buttons and the LED flash opening.

UPDATE 23/02/13:
At Aduy suggestions, i updated the STL using his latest fixed cover. I did not try to print this new version, but i passed it thru Netfabb, so should be ready to print.
Talking about the V3 version of course...just keeping original version for legacy

Nice work! :)
Which printer did you use (Replicator 2 or Replicator 2X ?) and how long did this printing take? (Excuse my english, i'm from Belgium ^^)

No worry for the english...i am french, so i am not really better :)
I used replicator 2, 0.15mm layer height, support at 10% density,2 shells total, Makerware slicer (customized profile), feedrate infill at 80mm/s, travel feedrate also 80mm/s, outline (the external shell) at 50mm/s.
These are slow, but i found out that if i speed up things too much, i end up from time to time with my prints offsetting randomly. I re-tightened the belts, but to no avail. As my bushings are loosing quite a bit of oil recently, i assume that at high speed and when doing small inset/small infill area at high speed, i have some binding happening...but not sure about that.
