Is it possible that you can adapt the eypiece to an diameter of 41,5mm? =)
Thank you very much!

I printed this and can see part of the plastic through the camera of the iphone 6. It needs to be modified.

I'm not sure how this could happen. The only thing I can think is that you might have mounted the right backwards. The ring should not overlap the phone holder much.

Unfortunately, this doesn't work with an iPhone 7. The holder more-or-less works but the lens is a bit offset.

The pegs need to be longer (double the height) as they dont go in far enough to the body to form a good solid connection (this will help holding it together with super glue ) and will allow the use of a soldering iron to melt the end of the peg basically riveting them. I also found that using a small drill to countersink the holes makes fitting together better.
i think with some filament as a filler and a soldering iron the seams could be welded together but i havent tried that yet

Edit
yes welding it together at all the joining faces with a soldering iron and scrap filament as a filler works brilliantly really solid join
Also filled the peg holes to make a rivet then a light sanding
Job done
thanks for the model hope these tips help

Nice work!!

Can you do one for iphone 4?

: )

I originally used super glue but found the bond wasn't that great. Therefore I switched to epoxy and it is much more secure.
