Afraid of dropping your Apple TV remote and shattering the glass? 3D Printing to the rescue! You can 3D print this simple bumper for your remote and stop worrying about dropping it or it flying out of your hands when gaming. This features openings for the IR sensor and charging port. Also, add a lanyard to the corner for extra security.
This bumper is designed for Ninajflex (or other flexible) filament, so DO NOT try printing it in hard plastic like PLA or ABS.
Because of the rubber, it’s actually grippy and feels great in your hands, so no more slipping!
Want to modify the design to make it your own? Download the archive and use it in your favorite CAD modeling program!
Designed in Autodesk Fusion 360

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
