I have been having trouble removing support material from my pervious case when printed in a "flat" orientation. However, "flat" is the way to get the nicest quality case.
This is my solution. Printing in two pieces laying flat will be fastest, use the smallest amount of support material, and yield the nicest finish.
Print one of each part.
I recommend a resolution of .15mm, that will make the "lip" on the inner part three layers thick.
Glue together on the small lip. Your phone will hold the inner part in if you don't want to glue the two together.
Plus you can do a 2 color case!
UPDATE: (3/7/13) I added a small feature to try and help with the side walls where they attach to the bottom. I also made a small adjustment to the width to give it a bit more room. The updated file is IPHONE-5_Case_Re-Imagine1-bumper_v2.2.STL. I left the original files there too.
