This thing was made with Tinkercad.

Protect your nanotech camera, make a paramedic jump kit for a mouse, wear it on a chain like a modern locket. Have not printed this yet - I am still awaiting the shipment of my Printrbot. Please let me know how it comes out when you print it!

OR buy one from these guys:


The photographs are Shapeways' "Black Strong and Flexible". It prints very well in laser-sintered nylon.

There is no tolerance in the joint of this two-piece Thing. The hinge assumes perfect precision. If they bind you may need to adjust one side or the other to get a better fit. Please give me any feedback about how it fits together when you print it, including printer used and layer resolution, if known. Thanks!

Sorry to say but this doesn't work because of small overhangs :(

Great work :) I'm printing this in a min.

Full disclosure: the pictured mini Pelican case was printed in strong flexible nylon via an SLS process by Shapeways. I have tried printing this with my Printrbot and got less than awesome results. I hope you share your results.

My printrbot plus WITH z axis upgrade and other upgrades should be here this week, only cost $180 for shipping though :(

I feel you "pain".
I'm currently waiting for my RepRapPro Huxley to ship, and boy am I itching to get to play with it!
