This is just what I needed, thanks!

Thank you for you comment! Would be great to recieve your feedback after printing it!

It works great! The slots on the front that hold the earpods are very professional, and I am very impressed at how you made them. The only nitpick I have is that it's difficult to wrap my earpods so that the lightning connector fits in the slot, but otherwise the design is incredibly well done. I'm a real beginner to CAD so if you have a chance to explain how you created the earpod imprints so well I would love to learn

Other thing that I realize is that I printed the model upside down (the EarPods looking up and the connectors looking down) and your pictures look like you printed them the opposite way.

Good to hear from you!
It wasn’t easy to do the right shape. I made many models and prints before finding the best one.
What I did was wrapping the earpods in paper tape and then putting them inside the original case so I could mark with a pen on the tape the edges of the case.
Then I tried to make a mesh also with a pen on the tape to analize the shape.
It was all about printing and modelling many tines.
Avout the lightening you should see the video to know how to wrap it.

Thanks for explaining your process to me! You did a great job, kudos on that - definitely deserves more likes!
