The TriStand iPhone case is a stylish and rugged designer snap on case for your iPhone 4 or 4s which protects your iPhone with 3 flip out hinged integrated stands while keeping the thickness of the case at a modest 2.25mm (1.5mm at the sides); these stands can be used to stand the iPhone in 1 of 3 orientations, a portrait orientation and 1 of 2 angles on both of the landscape orientations, one is great for typing, and the other is great for watching videos!

The TriStand is 3D printed in a strong and rugged Polyamide material in the colours in the drop down box labelled 'Select Material' in the top right, these materials also have a grippy texture to them. Due to the amazing capabilities of 3d printing, the TriStand is printed fully assembled, so no assembly is required.

Watch the video in the above slideshow to see the case in action and a demonstration of how to use the case.

The intelligent design uses 'ball in socket' like catches to prevent the moving parts from opening by themselves in your pocket.

Guaranteed to fit all types of iPhone 4 and 4s.

Before installation, unclick all the moving parts and move all the moving parts back and forth gently, this may be quite hard at first due to excess printing material from the printing process however this will get easier quickly, however some of these hinges are designed to rotate only 90 degrees in each direction, do not force the moving parts more than this as this can result in damaging the hinges.

To install the case, push the top of the iPhone all the way into the top of the case and then clip the bottom two corners in and push them together to ensure a good fit.

I watch videos and my son plays games, having the iPhone stand in 3 different positions would make the experience so much more enjoyable! Also compared to most 3D printed iPhone cases the Tri-Stand has a lower cost.

How did you come up with the TriStand design? More important... how did you make it work? Fantastic!
