Could you please make an iPod touch gen1 version? I am getting one from a pal and need a cool case.

Nope. I have zero interest in buying a 9 year old thing just so I can spend 12+ hours making a case for it-- and then never using either the iPod or case again.

I made one today and it barely fits/doesnt at all, any tips? theres about a 1 mm gap between the pieces

If your printer is badly tuned, then these parts will have a very loose or very tight fit. And by tuned, I am mostly referring to how much plastic the extruder is extruding as well as the retraction/deprime. You can look at the broad flat sides of the printed case as an indicator. The smoother the sides, the better tuned the printer is.

I would guess that your printer is far from in-tune, and is not extruding enough filament. Decreasing the filament diameter when slicing will increase the extruded amount. Beyond that I can't really say what you should try since I don't know what kind of printer you are using, what software, etc. And even if I did know these things, unless you happen to be using the same stuff I have then I would be less than useful.

It downloads for me. I just tried.

ok thanks! I will prints this once I get a new PLA.

you should make the case just lay down while printing! it would make it would be more productive.

It wouldn't print correctly if it were lying flat. If the LCD side were facing up then the gentle curve on the bottom/back would have an inconsistent surface finish, and there are terrible overhangs. But if the LCD were facing down then the entire back would need supports and that would mess up the fit around the iPod. With it oriented the way I did, the surface finish is mostly consistent and there are no terrible overhangs-- it just needs a little cleaning up after printing.

I suggest you try this case instead, made to fit very nice and protect well while keeping style and comfort http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1516222

iPod 5 case Dovetail

Since I don't have a Gen 5, and have no plans to buy one, I doubt that I'll be making a Gan 5 case. Never say never, but I wouldn't bet on it.

please? think of the children... mainly me
