After some more testing and temperature experimenting, this still will not print properly.

Please tell me a little more, is the issue with the first layer?

Hey, thanks for replying! Yes the issue appears to be with the first layer. I tried printing it open side down with supports, but the printer looks like it's trying to print the waves which doesn't make sense and that's where the curling and pulling of the object comes into play. I also tried to print in open side up and that started out well, but rather than printing one whole raft and then starting the first layer, it prints two small pieces of raft and then on those it prints the point that stick out the farthest on the back of the case. It then proceeds to try to connect the other pieces of raft together which I've never seen before.

I have a Flashforge Creator Pro and tried to print this twice, unsuccessfully. Not exactly sure why, my bed is properly leveled and I'm printing in PLA with the issue of curling. I'll try again.

I love the esthetics of this case design. However, I tried printing several times and it would not work.
With the first attempt I thought that it might have been my bed was misaligned, and spent several hours adjusting and calibrating.
I printed a few things since without issue, and tried this print 2 more times. All 3 attempts failed with curling and dragging. I used all the printers defaults. Does that means custom settings are needed?

Hi, As others have mentioned this is for the 6 not 6+. Please post the 6+ file. It looks like a fantastic case, just the wrong phone.

Apologies, I should be fine now :)

+1 to jasper594's comment. This is too small for a 6+ case. Please post the 6 plus file. I like the wavy texture. Thanks.

Apologies, I should be fine now :)

Just pritnted this,,, not for 6+! just for Iphone 6

Apologies, I should be fine now :)

Hi creator, I have tried to print the iPhone 6 plus case, but instead it came out with the iPhone 6 case which is far to small for the phone in question. I have double checked the files and I downloaded the files on the iPhone 6 plus case, but when opening up the files I found that the file is named iPhone 6, I think that you might of uploaded the wrong case. Many thanks Olly

Apologies, I should be fine now :)

You are right. Helpful comments are best.
With phone laying flat,
1) Sleep/wake button slot needs to be moved 3/32" towards the bottom or home button an 1/32" up towards the top or display side. The Sleep/wake button is 7/16" long and 1/16" wide. Adjust your slot accordingly.
2) Rind/Silence switch and Volume buttons' slot needs to move up 1/32" towards the display and 1/16" toward the bottom. The combined length of the Rind/Silence switch and Volume buttons is 1-13/32". The Volume buttons are 3/32" wide.

Thank you very much!

Just to clarify:

1- Sleep/Wake button was move down (towards home button) by 3/32"

2- Height of Sleep/Wake was fine, width was made 1/16" + tolerance

3- Switch/Volume button was moved 1/32" towards the display and 1/16" toward the bottom.

4- Switch/Volume button Length seemed fine, made width a little smaller

Do not use. Openings are in the wrong place for side controls

A constructive comment would be useful, please explain the problem so I can correct it.

I've printed two of them flat, and they both came out with the inside being a bit wonky. I'm not sure if I can print it upright because it will interfere with the gimbal that holds the extruder head. What should I do? i am using a Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer

Unfortunately they really need to be printed up right, does the case not fit in that position when you import it in Makerware?

When I put it into makerware it said that its to big for the platform and it gives me the option to rescale it. . I think if I keep it perpendicular and standing up vertically. It should be ok. I'll print it again and let you know how it comes out. Thanks for the speedy response
