Print your own flexible elephant phone case with a sturdy trunk for angled position and big floppy ears to protect your phone. Original concept and design was made by my twelve year old daughter Bente as part of an after school project. We designed two cases, one suitable for an HTC sense and one for an iphone 5. I think the case will also work for an iPhone 5s, but did not test it.
The design was made in Fusion 360 and printed on an Ultimaker Original+.
* For the case two STL files can be downloaded, one for an HTC sense and one for the iPhone 5.
* The trunk and button are suitable for both cases (two STL files).
* The case should be printed with flexible PLA. I used Ultimaker PLA flexible white. For the Ultimaker Original+ these settings were used: heated bed switched off and covered with blue tape, printing speed at 10 mm/s, temperature at 230 degrees, a few drops of sewing machine oil in the bowden tube to avoid jamming.
* For the trunk and button I used Colorfabb PLA traffic red (iphone case) and some obscure glow-in-the-dark PLA for the HTC sense case. Printing at 50 mm/s, nozzle at 190 degrees and heated bed at 50 degrees.
