have you made this in real life? does it fit the phone nicely even with the square corners? is there a way to bevel these corners if you wanted?

No, I have not made this in real life because my maker bot is not functioning. How ever while it was working I printed a prototype, the square corners did not seem to make a difference. If you oh so choose, you can make a fillet on the inside corners of the case. Hope that answers your questions.
