3D model description

This is a protective cover or case I modeled for the Nintendo New 3DS XL (it will NOT fit the original 3DS XL). It's intended to be printed in TPU.

The top piece is a nice snug fit, but due to the design of the handheld, the bottom piece is a little more loose - It still fits great and won't detach during normal use - See gif/video for demonstration.

Looks great in alternate colors!

It will print fine with PLA though, but I haven't tested the fit using PLA (TPU affords the necessary flexibility) and it might cause scratches to your handheld - So use PLA at your own risk.

3D printing settings

As per recommended settings for TPU filament. Preferably with a layer height of 0.2mm. Print bottom and top piece separately for best results.

There is a version with built in supports and one without supports.

If you want to try the version without supports:
There are 4 areas that will need a little bit of bridging, but with printing TPU at a speed of between 25mm/s and 40mm/s you shouldn't have any issues with those sections.
