A stylish Iris case

COrthbandt has built and shared a new 3D printed Iris case.

Case designed in OpenSCAD, printed in PLA on a Prusa Mini, spray-painted in Jet-Black.

Tenting feet are attached with magnets within the case:

I'm using super glue, gives a stronger bond. The magnets are pretty strong (10mmx3mm) and can pull their counterparts out of the feet unless those are really secured – COrthbandt.

Feet and case have rubber pads to prevent slipping.
