After many people contacting us here at The 3D Library asking if we would design a Honeycomb iPhone case for the 4/4S, Well we took up the challenge and designed it, the holes are the same size as the iPhone 5 version and it looks just as awesome!

You can also buy this case on Shapeways now http://www.shapeways.com/model/768540/iphone-4s-honeycomb-case.html?li=


Print with a raft and maybe some support material with a high infill

I was able to print this without support with 100% infill. Had to scale up to 101% to get a snug fit, but I attribute that to the black PLA I was using (102% was too much). 

I love the case, it works quite well, but it just isn't quite perfect yet :)

I would love to get access to the source files for some slight modifications:

  1. Open up a hole in the back to let the apple logo shine/reflect through
  2. Trim off the 4 nubs where the volume button cut out is (they get caught in pocket)
  3. Increase the diameter of the headphone jack by ~.5mm to allow for larger headphone plugs
  4. The bottom of the case tends to get caught on the older 30 pin adapters, so trim it back a bit ~1-0.5mm
  5. Fill in the few hex gaps around the flash/camera hole for more strength (without detracting from the overall design)Anyway we can get a revised copy, or source files?Thanks,Chris

Looks nice!
Hope I'll get my Printer running soon so I can print it.
