I submitted for a quote to two other companies, I'll see what this company says too.
I could get it printed in abs plastic for possibly cheaper depending on how much they charge and how much my school would charge. But this is all if I can get permission first...
a 3mm extender is not needed in this case(pun?), it'll touch the side on the spot against the case.
they quoted me $144.64. jesus.
I don't quite understand.
i take back the "shouldnt be too much part" lmao!!
yeah these are freakin spendy. Ill wait till the other quotes get back to me.
For abs plastic? Holy cow... What's the weight in solidworks if you change the material to abs plastic?
It means that the L adapter will not come short with that case you created, I have a TPU case on right now and has a 2mm clearance. It is clear for at least 4-5mm without the case I have on
hmm, good question. ill check later. Its doing renders and my AMD cpu is getting taken like an english nanny.
ok, this case is 3mm thick, so you should be fine i'd think
I would love this case. I would just have to hope that I don't get stuck in a boot loop because a battery pull would take far too much work.lol
I'm an engineering student at Penn State, so I'll talk to some people and see if I could get this made. School might just charge me for materials.
I don't want to be a debbie downer, but would the aluminum interfere with wireless signal? cell, wifi, bt, gps. Would anyone happen to know?
Just a heads up milling this is quite unrealistic on a 3 axis mill. (inside corners along with the top side going over the front of the phone and holes for ports and buttons) i'll look into printing a sand mold.
laser cut probably
the idea for this is awesome. i love everything about it.
i had an idea of building the triumph body (front and back plastic shells that hold motherboard and everything else) bring THAT part into the cad program, and have it milled or cnc out of alluminum, and just rebuild the phone with a sturdy body instead of adding a case to a flimsy body.
oh well, just an idea.
hey if this ever gets to some sort of reality ill put money in, looks beefy, like the aluminum covers I put on my drag racing motorcycle engines.
That would be cool too! Like we could have an aluminum body and back cover... cool!
It apparently did with Transformer Prime. They have addressed it with a plastic insert on the new ones coming out this summer.
Wouldn't you think it would make the signal better? Like a giant antenna strapped to the outside, but its also a case....
Since aluminum is not a ferromagnetic material be believe signal atteniation should be minimal.
Btw I contacted a mod about this and nothing. Who should I contact? This multipost thing is ******ed.
I'm throwing money at the screen but nothing's happening!!!!
i dont think alluminum has THAT much of an effect on signal, i mean its used in macbooks and they have wifi and bluetooth radios.
then again the iPhone had to have a corner of plastic so the signal could get through better
I guess I was the second one that you contacted... but let me know what needs changed and I'll take care of it for you.
The case looks great BTW!!! Here's to hoping you can get it made (for a lot cheaper than 144).
I want to add photos to the OP. Can I have rights to edit my own post? Why can't you edit on probation?
Unfortunately while you are on probation you are unable to edit your own posts. This is a restriction that the admin and owner have in place and is not one that I can change.
If you want, post everything you want in the OP as the NEXT post and I'll make sure that the post replaces everything in the OP.
