This is a standard iPhone 4/4s case that is based off of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:22572#

How did you make the curves fit to the iPhone?

The dimensions are based off of the specs given for Apple's iPhone 4s. Apple is quite kind in providing great documentation for their devices as found here: https://developer.apple.com/resources/cases/https://developer.apple.com/re...

This model is to small - needs to be scaled up before it can be used!

Printed with Shapeways White/Strong/Flexible it fits the iPhone 4s for me.

it needs to be more than 1.01 to be good size. I had to crack it off to get my phone out

Thanks for uploading it as a Sketchup file! I was able to modify it and imprint a letter very easily!

th is means i can make my own using this as a  template!!  thank you thank you thank you. Of course they would be derivitives

first print at 100% didnt fit so I had to scale it up 1.01% to make it fit.... I printed it on my replicator with .2 layer thickness. Sanding it smooth down to 1000 grit sounded like a good idea but is not it just made it easy to scratch... Although sanding just the top edges worked well.

hmm, I will add this to the instructions. is there any additional information that should be posted for printing on the replicator?

Also, I would love to see photos of how it comes out from different printers.
