A quick trip to Apple’s product website to get dimensions, and measure the location and size of buttons, and then I started modeling in Tinkercad I found it tricky to get the beveled edges right.

Overall it worked, and printed solid at 100% infill. But I’m going to need to find a more flexible CAD solution to Tinkercad.

I printed this in food-safe eSun PETG.

Post Process

I spent a lot of extra time sanding to remove rough edges and layer lines.
