No idea which model(s) of iPad mini this fits.

Will it fit the ipad mini 2 (retina?) trying to make a case, but since I don't own my own printer I would like to know before

Doing some basic measurements inside the model it gives the impression it will not fit the mini 2/3. Can anyone recommend another case as a good starting point?

so the case does not work for iPad mini 2/3?

Hi, awesome case but do you have any idea of why it can't be rendered in Openscad when importing it, this is the only case model that doesn't want to render ...

Hi MARTIAL, Sorry to hear that. We did try to render it in Openscad but we also ran in to problems. We shall have a look at the problem for you. Thanks Ryan

Hi, Do you have a SketchUp of this model? Thanks.

Hi Ferblay, I am sorry we don't but it can easily be imported in to sketchup using a plugin.


Thanks Ryan, I will try.

Hi there
I printed the model with settings you mentioned. Now I cannot remove raft layer from model. Any tips

Hi we have printed hundreds of these and never had your issue, we suggest pliers and just yanking it off or use sand. Paper

Hi there,

I have made an app for the ipad mini to control automation at home (security and automation). So I would like to put my Ipad on the wall (as a consolle for my system). For doing it I need something to be fixed to the wall (with 2 o 4 screws) and on it I can hook my Ipad. What do you think, is it possible ?

Hi davidexrosetto, We are currently looking at a design to mount and iPad Mini to the wall for our office automation system. We will post a design soon.

Is it possible to export anything that is not a mesh? I don't have a good software for altering meshes.

Hi QuentinT, We are sorry that we cannot export in anything other than a mesh as our software does not allow this. But there may be a piece of software online somewhere that will export to the format you want.
