Even before iPhone 5 was launched, many companies were creating different accessories for the phone. One of the accessories is the 3D printing application. 3D printing is customized to celebrate and to protect the latest Apple smartphone. The
design-to-print abilities deliver stylish creations, which boast two-tier layer cases for shock absorption and an additional cushion with arty self-expression.
These accessories are popular for their innovative and stunning designs. There are many designs that one can choose from such as the shake and move chain-mail or the bird bone inspired casing. One particular company offers various cases to suit your style and even your mood, whereas another company provides you the app to create your own 3D printing.
This allows users to come up with their own designs and order them from the company, as soon as they are done with their individual creations. Users can add their name or customized messages at the side of each casing making it even more meaningful for the owner. Some of the designs that one can find from this app include:
This design is very light and you
can customize it as you see fit. Users can select the width and height of the iPhone 5 case, color, and personal message or status, which will be printed on the case itself. With less than $15, you will have your own customized iPhone 5 casing that might just be the envy of your friends.
This is ideal for users who love their case with
customized contours and bubbles on it. This web app allows users to tap where they want the bubbles to emerge. To get the right design that suits your taste, you can click on the screen, while holding the button down to create bubbles. To make bigger bubbles, you need to hold your mouse down. From the moment you are finished with your creation, you can sign and have it printed. This design will cost you less than $20.
This is actually a cool case, as you can upload photographs of two of your loved ones or even favorite celebrities. The app will cut their silhouette to perfection and merge them together to create the case. You can choose your favorite color and the best part is that you can choose what they say and the text will appear in a comic bubble. Be prepared to pay less than $20, which is not a bad price for something as cool as the comic iPhone 5 case.
The Cross Stitch
Cross Stitch allows you to sew a personalized pattern into your case with a real cross-stitched fiber. Choose a pattern and pick a color or colors that meet your style. This is ideal for users who prefer fabric as part of their phone casing.
With this option, you can engrave your favorite image or text on the iPhone 5 case. You can customize the font and the color. It is akin to having a tattoo except it will be on your phone’s case.
3D printing for iPhone 5 cases is fun and exciting. Additionally, it is affordable, which means you can create as many cases as you prefer.
