3D Printable 4.7-Inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Mockups Now Available from Free Plans

Yesterday, designer Martin Hajek started selling a $25 set of 3D files that allow you to print your own 4.7-inch iPhone 6 mockup using a 3D printer. Today, a second set of 3D plans for both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 were released by MacRumors forum user Arthur Tilly and made available for free on Thingiverse.

Using measurements available from leaked design drawings, the plans allow anyone with access to a 3D printer to print out the alleged iPhone 6 design and see how it feels in their hand. The set includes an .STL file for 3D printing and an editable OpenSCad file that can be used to modify the design and add some of the missing details like the Apple logo.

So, here's an OpenSCad file to create one, and the STL file it makes. There are some comments in there, so you can adjust things to your personal rumour preference. And improve it, of course. It doesn't print the expected lump on the back for the lens (that would mean the entire build would be on supports, or it would have to be printed a different way around). Neither does it have an apple logo or some other details that would be nice. Maybe I'll improve it soon, or feel free to do so yourself...

There has been no shortage of renderings of the rumored iPhone 6 that provide an advance look at the possible shape and size of Apple's upcoming smartphone. A new post from Taiwanese blog AppleCorner provides precise measurements of 138 x 67 x 7.0 mm obtained from one of these mockups, while a Sonny Dickson leak shows physical mockups in roughly the current three colors used on the iPhone 5s.

While there are a variety of cases and mockups all pointing in the same direction for the design of the iPhone 6, it is important to remember that most of these products are essentially all based on the same sets of leaked design drawings, and they ultimately may or may not prove correct.

I love Apple products as much as the next guy; but 3D printing your own mockup of what someone supposes the next iPhone will be is a little too "out there" for me.

Print out iPad

This reminds me of the guy who found the damsons to the first iPad and put them out online so people could print it ( on a normal ink printer ) and fold it to be the size and shape of an iPad so you could know what it feels like in your hands. The link was on this site but it was so long ago no way would I be able to find it .

Will there be regular size iPhone 6?

Everyone is talking about new bigger iPhones, but if I wanted a brick in my pocket I'd go with Samsung or similar. I want regular size iPhone 6, same width as iPhone 5 all other before. Will it be available? :mad:
