iPhone 6 is on it's Way Next Week And so Are 3D Printed Personalized Cases

dar-3If you are anything like me, then you can’t wait to see just what Apple will be announcing next Tuesday. We’re certain it will be the next version of the company’s smartphone, the iPhone 6, but just what features will it have, and will any other groundbreaking products be unveiled as well? We’ll have to wait and see.

Over the past year we have seen numerous 3D printed smartphone cases, both for the Apple’s iPhone as well as various Android devices. In fact, even MakerBot got in on the trend, teaming with a company called Fraemes a couple weeks back to enter the market for customized 3D printable iPhone cases.

Today, we got a bit of news from a relatively new company, Darby Smart, a San Fransisco based maker marketplace where consumers can launch, discover and buy DIY projects and pre-tested craft supplies. The company has announced that they are now making available, customizable 3D printed products at affordable prices via their web interface.

“Darby Smart scours the Internet for unique projects and packages them up for consumers in a collection of kits. All Darby Smart projects are super easy and accessible, no matter what a person’s DIY skill level. Projects are pre-packaged with everything you need – and in various categories, e.g., home décor, fashion, food, kids and holiday,” stated Kristin A. Martell from K21 Communications, a PR firm representing the company.

The new 3D printing section strays just a bit from the rest of the marketplace, as the products offered within the new 3D printing section are created on the site, rather than at home. For now, the company has made available, their customizable 3D printed bracelets where users can change the font, lettering, and color of the bracelets before having them printed and shipped to their doorsteps. Darby Smart, however, will be one of the first to offer iPhone 6 cases. On the day that dar-1Apple announces the iPhone(s), September 9, Darby Smart will begin offering cases for the highly anticipated device, fully customizable within their 3D editing platform. Once users customize their cases by choosing the color, symbols, letters and words they wish to include, they can pay just $9 and have their case shipped to them within about a week.

It’s a given that when next week comes around we will begin seeing other companies, as well as designers, begin offering models and physical 3D prints for a variety of different cases for the new iPhone. Darby Smart hopes to be a bit ahead of them all.

Let us know if you decide to create a 3D printed iPhone 6 case at Darby Smart, and be sure to post pictures in the 3D printed iPhone case forum thread on 3DPB.com.
