    I think it's really beautiful! Easily the best I've seen on shapeways... If only I had an iPhone 5 :cool:

    I love the look and color, I'd email service about that polish. Doesn't look very polished to me either.

    Hey Genghis,

    The design looks fantastic but perhaps a little thin. what is the wall thickness of the part?

    Thanks

    Hi Duann,

    The thickness varies from 0,98 mm to 1,51 mm. I´m currently testing it and it is quite strong and flexible.
    The case doesn´t slip but the corners are maybe to thin for an optimal protection.
    Moreover, only the inner faces are polished and not the outer ones. Should I rotate the model before uploading ?

    I´m designing a thicker version for iPhones 4 and 5 and will update it as soon as possible.

    Thanks for help !

    Currently the position in the file doesn't effect the printing orientation, as the operator decides how they should print to produce the best results. That and the polishing is a post process done in a tumbler, so how it's oriented shouldn't effect the polish.
