i made this and it was just the slightest bit too small. broke in a few places when i tried to put it on my phone. bummer.

Did you print with pla? If so I suggest scaling it to 102%. This is in the description.

I printed in Fox Smart flexible TPU at 100%. It fits pretty well. Might actually be the slightest bit too big.

I tried printing at 101.5% for PLA but it made the Y axis grow by over 2mm, I'm trying 100% now but if anything I'd only stretch the x and maybe z axis to avoid cracking.

Hi Mitrix,

I rescaled the stf in OpenSCAD. I increased the length to 1.0075 and the width to 1.0129. Then it worked with my printer setting in PLA, but I had to enlarge the hole for the ear plugs. I am currently using the case on my Nexus 5X.

Fantastic. Getting the right fit is really key. It worked as-designed from my machine, but small changes are expected from machine to machine.

Upload a make and let me know how it turns out. I'm sure you can make it work with PLA. I've been using my print of this case for a week now and it is good. I can pop it off if needed but it stays on firmly. I think this is about as thin as any plastic or rubber case could be.

Will do. Thought I'd be able to this morning but this happened :( https://goo.gl/photos/jhVbxqibNkUrqD7N9

I feel your pain.
