Do you have an iPhone 5c model? Or plans for one? Thx!

Thanks for reaching out @kreator. I had a quick look at your PowerCap model. I don't know what object it is built to clip on to but I imagine the ends of the arms contact the object and the rest of the arm bows out, away from the object until it returns back to the circular piece at the top. I would suggest you match the curvature of the arms to the face they pair with. Then to get the snap on, clip effect I would position the bend as high up the arm as possible. The thicker(therefor stiffer) the material the less bend you will need. Hope this helps!

The bended shape is a very good idea to make it cling to the sides. I thing I need to do the same with my PowerCap (also a kind of casing problem...). I've never printed a bended product that need to be constrained to match the require final shape. I hope that it is not too tricky or does not involve too much trial & error, or a specific CAD function... May I ask you how you did the bend, the curvature ?
