    Question Printing phone case

    Hi guys i want to design some phone case for my phone (xiaomi) but i cant find any .stl file for my xiaomi phone. Im afraid after i printed the design out the size can’t matched with my phone. Do you have any suggestion what should i do? I know there are some 3d scanner but i think that quite expensive is there any other alternative?

    well, first get a 3d printer :-)

    you'll find most phones of a similiar screen size are very similiarl in shape also.
    So with a little resizing you can most likely adapt existing cases to fit your phone.

    I Did a quick search on thingiverse and found many (xiaomi) phone cases. Depending on your model number.

    Well with Netfabb you can always do some measurements to see if it will fit.
    Since you can buy about 1,000 phone cases for the price of a workable 3D scanner.

    Well, you can actually download the sizes from the internet and just write them on a 3d printer, if you have one, if not, I definitely recommend you buying one, you won't regret it for sure. I bought my 3d printer for about 2 years ago and till now, I managed to print a lot of useful things, starting with Iphone cases and finishing with different useful things for my home. I managed to do a lot of things that I use for my home, different cups, flowers, spoons, even a matching gear which I use for one mechanism in my room. I know guys that printed different car details, sculptures, computer cases, someone even printed a pair of shoes. Yeah, it is impressive to have such a technology at your home.

    I think it's pretty expensive to buy a 3D printer to print a couple of cases) It will be helpful only if you decide to open your production of cases XD. Maybe you would try to order a case and check from the designer the size of the image? Choose a photo or image you want and send it to the designer. I think this would be the best option. I purchased my CaseFace from this online store. Find out from them! By the way, I wonder what design you chose for your case? I love phone cases with cartoon or anime characters. And I also want to order a cover with the image of my cat. I have a great photo of a fluffy beauty!
