This is the iPhone 5 minimalistic version of the TriStand 3D Printed iPhone Cases.So what is the TriStand?
The TriStand iPhone case is a stylish, rugged, ergonomic and most importantly practical snap on 3D Printed protective case for your iPhone with flip out integrated stands
using 3D printed micro-hinges; these can be used in different combinations to produce very geometrically stable stands 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 flip out stands fold flush to the case and 'snap' into place when not in use
to stop the stands from opening by themselves. All this while keeping the thickness of the case at only 2.25mm (and 1.5mm at the sides).Check out the video in the slideshow above of the iphone 4 version of case in action.The TriStand design is 3D printed fully assembled taking full advantage of the 3D Printing's ability to print moving parts in a single print.The TriStand iPhone Cases are 3D printed for you when you order fully assembled in a grippy, strong, rugged and lightweight plastic polyamide material in the colours in the drop down box labelled 'Select Material' in the top right of the page.
Excess powder from the 3d printing process may make the hinges of the moving parts 'sticky' when your case first arrives but this loosens very quickly.
