The original design was intended for flexible filament. It would crack if printed in PLA when mounting on the phone. I made some extra cut-outs so that PLA could flex enough to mount on the phone without cracking.
Since this back is thinner than the camera protrusion, there is also a design for a protective camera ring which can be glued to the back.
After printing this for my new phone, I found http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:814007 which may also make a good starting point for my case. Revision "C" is my first design. The current revision, "D" uses the above template.
I have added an (optional) front face protector. I super-glued some overhead transparency over the honeycomb for extra protection. You can attach the two sides with some cloth for a hinge to make a book-like protector.
Insert the top (camera) part of the camera into the case first. The sides should flex enough to fit snugly around the bottom corners.
If you want extra protection for the camera, print the camera ring, and cement it to the back of the case around the camera protrusion.
