UPDATE 5/31/2017

I updated the .stl file so its slimmer and a faster print. I've had mine on my keychain for almost 3 months now and its a very snug fit and doesn't move. I've heard of many people losing their AirPods... Not me!! Enjoy!

This is a simple keychain holder for the Apple AirPods. I've see too many people losing these things so I thought, what is something that I can attach them to that I have on my at all times? Ah-ha! my keys.

This is a press fit around the AirPods. It fits nice and tight. I made sure of this. The one in the picture is done with PLA and I've attached pictures of my settings in Cura Version 15.04.6. I also have a Prusa i3.

Enjoy! Let me know if you have any ideas for tweaks!

Hello i really want to print this but when i open it up it is tiny and i need to know the dimensions to resize it can you please reply with the dimensions

Just scale all the axes by 25.4. When I converted the stl file I was set to inches so you need to convert it to mm. I don’t have the model anymore.

i used 24.5 on all of them and it was huge then i put 24.5 on the y and it auto scaled it does this look right

I found the file and saved it in MM. See the file with the _MM on the end and you should be all set now.

Have you tried printing this in NinjaFlex or some other kind of flexible filament? Nice design! Can't wait to try it.

No I have not tried using Ninjaflex or any flexible filament. I have ninjaflex but I only used it once for a smart part. Plus I don't like switching materials because it causes clogging and I need to take the nozzle off and clean it.

It does work really well, thank you. I would stick with hard plastic.

I printed this with NinjaFlex tonight and it came out great! I'm using a Flash Forge Creator Pro and I don't have problems with clogging. I sized down a bit so that it would have a tighter fit and widened the band a bit. Posted an I Made One photo for you. Thanks again!

Dude! wow... that looks great! Thanks for sharing this. Could you also share your settings for your Ninjaflex? Do you have a heated bed?

I'm looking mainly for bed/nozzle temperature, print height/speed, flow rate, etc. How long did it take to print and what are you using for your software?


I do have a heated bed. I had the bed at 60 degrees, temp for NinjaFlex at 230, and I slowed print to 1000/min (I think, I'll double check when I get home). It took an hour and 15 min to print. I use Simplify3D, it was expensive at $150, but completely worth it. If you need more info on settings let me know and I'll send over whatever you need. I have my settings for NinjaFlex saved so I don't pay too much attention now. The one difference is that when unloading NinjaFlex, instead of pushing the material through the nozzle (I was told to always just push new filament through rather than pulling out with the unload feature), I pull out the NinjaFlex using the unload feature.

when I imported the file it appeared at a microscopic scale in CURA, I Played around with the ratio but any idea how to rectify this?

scaled it to 2567.22% eventually

Thanks slick (and Daley). Copy/pasted your scale value and have a nice holder now.

Hey sorry about that... I forgot that I exported it in Inches not MM. The conversion is 25.4.

When I get some free time I'll update it.

Ah cheers,that makes sense now!....also explains an error I encountered with another project.......The last ratio worked great and it looks super in black!...il post a pic!
