Introduction: 3d Design & Print Iphone 6 Case
Instructable for the design and fabrication of a phone case for the iphone 6.
This was undertaken as a case was ordered but its taking way to long, the resulting case is quite comfortable and was a good quick project.
Hope you enjoy it and feel free to download the free stl file from the link at the end.
Step 1: Design in Inventor
Start a sketch using a center point rectangle
Step 2: Extrude Rectangle
Extrude in this case 7mm
Step 3: Add Fillets to Corners
We use a fillet of 10mm
Step 4: Corner Profile
Fillet the outside edge
Step 5: Thicken Part File
Thicken the solid to the outside
Step 6: Shell Part
Shell the part file and select top face as excluded
Step 7: Create First Cut
Create a mirrored extrude cut about mid plane using project geometry for the bottom of the cut using the base of the shell for the reference.
Step 8: Create Second Cut
Create a second cut perpendicular to the first cut using the mid plane.
Step 9: Create Cutout for Camera Lens
Create another cut using the bottom of the shell feature for the camera, (probably would have been best to use the work plane so the model can be changed more readily)
Step 10: Create Chamfers and Fillets
Step 11: Export to an Stl File
Export file for slicing in your desired software we used Repetier
Step 12: Print File
We used our custom made 3d printer free files can be downloaded from our site so you can also build one yourself and well do another instructable on its construction later.www.ouroborosdesign.com the stl for the phone case can also be downloaded from there, hope this is ok and you can get something from this we know its a bit brief and can add ifo later if people are interested.
update note, people may be having trouble finding the stl file after updating the website it is located under the downloads section.
