Any chance you would be willing to share the model? I'd like to make a remix with the Batman logo on it, would be happy to turn my work over to you to distribute if you choose.

My son really wants a Batman Iphone XS case printed in Ninjaflex, and unfortunately there is no such model.

Hi, you can add the Batman logo in Tinkercad, it's free and easy to use and probably the best way to modify this case. My f360 file is a real mess and I don't really like sharing my files. I hope you understand :)

Hey Matthias,
I printed your cover and it looks really nice. I just printed at in x and y 0,5% bigger while parts came typically a bit bigger in each direction out.
But this also depends on the slicer, printer etc. Did you think about a second version with closed buttons? This could be mich easier to print without any dissolvable support.

Hi, thanks for printing. I couldn't quite make out from your comment if it fit well or not after adjusting the size? I have done closed buttons on my iPhone X and Galaxy S8 case but that was a loooot of work and prototyping. I might try to add closed buttons some day but I'd have to do it for every case I've designed, which is a lot of work. I won't be able to design anything for the coming 4 weeks because of finals but after that I will try to make closed buttons ;) Is there anything else that should be changed on this case?

Hi Matthias, thanks for your fast reply. :-) After adjusting it fits very well. If you need help with sizes/test prints, let me know, i will try to measure as best as possible and would like to help to adjust the design. What i would change additional is the thickness of the back. At the moment its thinner than the camera thickness so there is a chance to scratch the camera. Timm

Nice! I will let you know when I need your help or when the next version is finished. I thought I had made a revision that is thicker but it seems I might've forgotten to upload it

Can you upload the thicker version? :)

Hi, I am sorry for my late response, and I had completely forgotten about the thicker version. I have uploaded it now, it is now 2mm thick (camera protrudes 1.4mm). I add "thinner" to the previous version's name. However, I have now also made a v3 of this case, which is also thicker but now has a chamfer at the bottom which should make printing easier (I've had several prints fail because of the fillet). It also has better button cutouts; the case is made thinner around the buttons, making sure you can press them more easily. I am planning to update all my other iPhone cases with these changes (some already have them), but I really don't have time for that now (maybe in July). Happy printing!

Thanks, this was my first flexible filament print using SainSmart TPU. It turned out pretty good!

Thanks for printing, I'm glad it came out good!

Works great with flexible TPU 95A filament. I used dissolvable PVA support material to get the best finish on the bridges. Thanks for taking the time to create and share this design!

Thank you for printing! It's the first time someone printed one of my cases with dissolvable supports :) The print quality looks really nice
