Galaxy S3 Tardis Case

S3 case merged with a Tardis
So - took an S3 case and worked in a proportionally correct Tardis.
I printed this thing all weekend and finally came up with the right formula.
I first tried printing with my Tardis blue ABS - upside down, right side up with and without full support. In every event the abs shrunk too much, lifted off the platform, support unraveled or a combination of all 3.
If anyone has any idea how to print a phone case in ABS, please let me know...because I couldn't figure it out.
Finally I printed with PLA - I used a blue tinted clear PLA, sprayed a liberal coating of hair spray on the platform - used a raft, full support and 25% fill. printed perfectly.
There was much weeding, but it came out 98% perfect. The 2% odditiy was the raft looking middle panels....all panels should look like the lower panels. It is designed that way and printed that way when printed upside down...so I might tweak the file and reload later. Let me know if you experience the panel oddity.
I happen to have some Testors spray paint left from 1991 that actually still worked...finished it off with the other Testors paint and a sharpie. I had originally planned to print the Tardis Police Box sign and the panel instructions to adhere...might still do the police box sign at a later date....if so, will upload a file sized to fit as well.
