If you are a Master/Mistress of...

...Middleages wars you will most probably have no pockets in your armor.

No problem! Now you can use this accessory to keep your iPhone handy in the battle field.

No source files??? Oups, sorry, I've done this is a hurry since I uploaded my previous thing and the code is a mess of harcoded bits here and there.


The zip file contains everything (and nothing more) that's available to download. This being said:

Print, assemble, smash!

Print one of each STL but for:

  • Spikes and their nuts, you need 12 of each.
  • Chain Bolt and their nuts, you need 2 of each.

If you need/would like other instructions, please check "iFlail.pdf" for a picture by picture assembly guide.

I don't have an iPhone so I took a look to the different iPhone models in thingiverse for the 3 major dimensions.

Everything has been designed with tolerances that should ensure a good fit. If you have problems with the threads (and they look good shaped) you can ream a little beat the nuts (light ream with a sharp knife) and decrease the outer diameter of the bolts with a file.

Ensure that you don't smash too much the 1st layer and everything should be ok for a decently fine tuned printer.

The tap in the two handle parts is located at the bottom (build point of view) so you can stop the print if the threads don't look good.

The tallest part is something like 120mm, the largests are +/- 85mm for the rings and +/- 70mm x 90mm for the chain.

Hey, well done! congratulations :)


I love the fact the whole thing is printed,a nd requires no other nuts or bolts!

Thanks, printing threads may be challenging, specially for printers showing a lot of z-wobble or not having the belts well tensioned however what I like the most is not having to worry about the bolts or nuts I'll use (I design them accordingly) and also, the printed nuts are quite self-locking.

In the other hand, ABS screws can be too weak and very easy to break, the ones printed in PLA are much stronger.

:-[ I don't know who added the tag "winner" (which I just removed)

Thanks a lot for your support :-D :-D :-D

I've seen lots of super-cool entries so we better wait and see what the judges decide ;)
