LEGO iPhone5 Case Re-Imagined

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.

What pitch and size did you use for the lego dots? Just printed this, and small lego parts fit, but the pitch is way too small. Should be 8mm pitch and each dot should be 4.8mm in diameter. The pitch in this part seams to be something like 7.85mm
Printed this case on a bukobot using PLA. It looked good, but didn't hold onto the iphone 5. The phone just slipped right out. I would like to increase the thickness of the sides and maybe try it with ABS. Great design though and thank you for sharing.

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.
