The GO Case: A Pokedex Aimer Phone Case! #3DPrinting #3DThursday

Use customizer to input your phones dimensions to make your very own customized Pokedex phone case! CarryTheWhat shared this print on Thingiverse!

Since uploading the original video on Instagram on August 2nd, we’ve received thousands of messages asking us to release the design! We love Open Source projects, so we naturally wanted to release our original model! The only problem was, it turned out there were a LOT of different phone types! Like, a LOT.

“…i have a bq aquaris E5 , and i am really interested too (i am of spain)”

“…please make one for Galaxy J5 please thx”

“…make for Sony Xperia m4 aqua please”

We decided the best (and most efficient!) way to address this was to create a brand new parametric model, one that could be remixed easily to create any kind of phone case with just a few tweaks! Using Thingiverse’s Customizer, you can input your phone’s dimensions and features, and the case will print perfect just for you!

This is still a Work-In-Progress, so we expect to be patching bugs and adding features over the coming days and weeks. This is also our first time using Customizer on such a large scale, so let us know if you run into any problems generating a case for your phone type!

We’re thrilled and humbled by the community response to this model, and want to thank everyone who wanted to download a copy! We can’t wait to see all the Makes and Remixes of our design!

— 3D Central

We’ve included the .STL of the model used in the original video (with the painted buttons), which is made for an iPhone 5S. This version has not been made for any other phone, and was only made as a single prototype. We’re still releasing it for download in case anyone wants to remix or adapt it for any other phones! It’s a remix of the awesome design by ChrisIntravaia; be sure to check it out!

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!
