Ive recognized that my things were too small. So i have updated the .slt-file. i think that the case will fit perfectly :D
Want to hear something from your printings!!! :D
My first design or concept of a case for the fairphone.
There is one STL-File to generate the g-code.
Comments or improovements are desired.
I look forward to your reports and experiences.

has already been asked - but could you provide an editable file as well? I have printed the case in PLA and it doesn't quite fit. Also I'd like to try a slimmer version (and see if that breaks).
Thanks for your work, great fun testing it!

Hey! Thanks for your Interest!
I thought that you can import an .stl file in your application to make some changes. I use for my cases only flexpla and it fits very nice. I know, my design is not good for materials lice pla but i am on the way to design a knew, better, and slimmer case with all improovements of my experiences with this cases. I think i will be able to publish these design in one or two weeks. So please wait and keep calm :D

Repetier-Host doesn't seem to like this file as it says it's not manifold - tried fixing it in netfabb cloud but still the same problem. Any ideas?

Today I printed the version with the charge hole and it doesn´t fit. It´s 1mm so short in the length so my case broke a bit.
Please fix it.
Thanks for your work

I made some in ABS - no prob scaling it to 101% fits well and even without a flexible Material it works

could u pls provide step/dwg files? would be great!

or just the new one combined with the star ;)

great Job!

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this whole 3d printing-your-own-casing.

I'm having a hard time to find a place where i can place an order for my case? thus i don't own myself a 3D-printer.

Any good place you can recommend placing my order? I'd like a case with a material that's not so slippery.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!


check out http://3dhubs.com3dhubs.com and find a printer nearby

Nice work, thanks.

However the USB port is covered and to charge the phone you have to remove the case. Would you mind to add such a cut to the cover? Thanks a mill.

of course, i will cut a hole for the usb-connector

haha. I just printed one for myself and found out the same thing. maybe ="thingiverse-6043f3da6bb7317632b8103d6683d495:disqus" href="http://disqus.com/thingiverse-6043f3da6bb7317632b8103d6683d495/sonnenguru could share the source file and we could adjust it ourselves?

what do you mean with the source file?

the blender model

Looks nice. Is it possible to upload a solid model (iges/sat/step) as well?

im looking forward to publish such files

I printed one for a friend using ABS. She said that it was too rigid to get the phone inside the case. Did you print it with flexible material? She really liked the design but now I have to order a spool of flex material :-)

yes, i print with a elastomer. it is very flexible and perfect for cases. have you improovement to print with a rigid material?

I'm curious, did you use the 3D model of the Fairphone to cut it's shape out? And if so, did you have to tweak sizes? Besides increasing space around the power and volume button and minijack hole.

Why did you remove the fairphone logo in your latest version btw?

Hi, thanks for your interessts.
I have uses the 3d-cad-modell of the fairphone, but i had to make a new outside mesh. the mash of http://fairphone.comfairphone.com isn acceptable. for the next days i will ffer some other designs of the case as stl-file.
for the volume button and other stuff i maked objects with blender and subjected from the case.
