why when I go into customizer is there no button to download what i've customized?

can you please add 6 +

there is an updated version of this case that supports iPhone 6 and 6+ here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:368375

Improved Customizable Phone Case

Can you please update with iphone 6 case size! I can't wait to use this customizer.

I made this http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:644573 but when i print it the first time didn't fit. I scale it to 101% and fit perfect. Why that happen?

Wonder Woman Logo iPhone 5 Case

Can I ask how you made this case? I'm new to this and want to make one

For which iphone version is this and how well does it fit?

is there a version of this for the 6?

Any patterns for the 5c?

I printed the case, it is too tight in WIDTH to fit the iphone5, especially upper left and lower left corners. My first print, not so bad.
I would like to know how I can change the specs for width to reprint.

Needs to be slightly wider, other than that, it's cool!

printed a case for iphone 5s fits okay, but the buttons are deep and hard to get to

5width = 57.57;

should be:

5width = 58.57;

Any suggestions on how to set up the "slicer" so that the sides don't break off? More walls? or fewer walls? When I tried to remove the case, one of the side walls just split from the base?

i hope it helps

maybe check your printing temp. the materials get more brittle when too hot and layers dont glue very well when too cold. its a fine line.
also maybe.. if it sticks too well. just a slighty lower z-platform position on print start helps removing prints (in 0.01 steps)

Cases I make out of this (BOTH iphone 4 and 5) are slightly too small. is this a customizer issue or a printer issue? looks like left top corner has the issue.. dremeled it out to fit. Going to try printing a 101% to see if this fixes overall tightness issue. Thoughts?

I printed the iPhone 5 version and it did not fit....... what can we do to fix this???

Was it too small? See above with John A - might be the same issue?

Printed 2 now in ABS on a Replicator - both (for iPhone 4s) were too narrow.

I had the same, John... I used this design in another one, and am working now on tweaking the code. I think there may have been a sign error on one of the equations for the "inside" of the case.

Have you had any luck since then?

I looks like Slic3r doesn't like it..
Are there any specific Slic3r settings I should change?

As in: To keep Slic3r from freezing at 'Processing Triangulated Mesh..'.
I tried running the STL through Netfabb, but that didn't fix it.
The STL(s) look fine with MeshLab.

Any thoughts?

It took more than half an hour, but Slic3r is done now :P
(i guess it was just a bit slow)

Ok yep, its a cool case and the 12,000 choices pretty cool also but really? I can't say how sick I am of seeing phones , rings , signs and Ted's head from Minneapolis making a weird face like he is giving birth.

Thingiverse is now a sea of blue customized iphone cases, rings and personalised cards.

Great apps, but I dislike it's ability to spam the Thingiverse.

for the love of god remove this!

Please make an RSS feed that filters out all these "customized" variants..

Is there any way to change the setting so we don't see all these new iPhone covers or rings or signs popping up the front page? It's drowning out all the other unique designs done by people who spent hours/days designing and customising their things. It's getting a bit too much now... thanks heaps.

pls stop posting your designs all!!! its cluttering the site.... thingyverse is a site were beautifull things are being made and shared and not only Iphool cases
