How to Make an IPhone 4s Case





Introduction: How to Make an IPhone 4s Case

This is my first instructable and I will show you how to design an iPhone 4s case using SolidWorks which you can print out using a 3D printer.  This YouTube video shows how to model the case and has all the right dimensions.

I uploaded the actual SolidWorks 2011 case file and an STL file.

Step 1:

The iPhone 4s template I used to get all the dimensions can be found in the the following link:
I also attached a picture of all the measurements of the case itself. 

Step 2: Renderings

Here are some of the iPhone case Renderings.

Step 3: Print Out Case Using 3D Printer

After you finish drawing the file, save it as .stl file and send it to the printer.

Step 4: Final Product

This is the case rendering compared to the actual case.

    yes CyborgNaes

    The material is pretty weak near the circle and won't fit on an iPhone.

    i have a similar case that just got shipped out today... it took almost 3 weeks to be made at some online website..
    great design!

    it was about 19 bucks to get it printed.. not including taxes or shipping .. :*(

    Could you please tell me where you let it be fabriced? I cannot find such a cheap website so far.

    shapeways.. you need to make your walls thinner

    Thanks! Did you design the case yourself?

    yup.. i'm making a video and putting it up soon.. it has a money clip, credit card and id holders, headphone holder and a bottle opener :)
