I've been working on a case since a few hours after the announcement! Glad they were quick on putting up the specs this year :-)

Other random accessories running around my brain waiting for me to have time.

I have made a basic case and bumper available for free download along with a dummy iPhone 5 all based on the dimensions given by Apple, waiting on the 3D Prints to come back..

Good luck all

What thickness for the case do you recommend? (1.5mm? is it enought) Because I never design a case for an iphone and I don't wan't to print it many times before it works.

1.4mm is quite strong for wall thickness.

Please advise what material is the best for this purpose so we can read material guidelines for that particular material.

Great question,
The best material would be Nylon
Our strong & Flexible material

Recently I came across some great articles on your site.
The other day, I was discussing ( my colleagues and they suggested I submit an article of my own. Your site is just perfect for what I have written!
Would it be ok to submit the article? It is free of charge, of course!

Let me know what you think
