Even though there is a 3D printer out there that can print you electronic devices, it’s still impossible to 3D print an entire iPhone. And believe us, it’s very unlikely that this will change any time soon. Nevertheless, if you can’t wait to hold Apple’s iPhone 6 in your own hands, then designer Martin Hajek could help you out. He can get you a 3D printed mockup of the new iPhone 6 for as little as 25 dollars.
Aside from giving you an idea of what could very likely be the shape of the new iPhone, there is no benefit whatsoever of buying this ‘phone’. Despite this poorness of being functional in any kind of way, it can still be interesting for (read: die-hard) Apple fans to try out the plastic iPhone mockup. His mockup ís based on a leaked concept version of the iPhone, which was published by Japanese magazine MacFan in late March this year.
If you would like to buy this plastic iPhone mockup, then you can get your own 3D print file via TurboSquid. The file is based on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model and they can be printed on several 3D printers. In the near future, you might be able to also buy a 3D printed physical mockup, instead of a file. This is a picture of the 3D printed plastic iPhone. It looks.. plastic, doesn’t it?
In addition, MacRumours has also tried to create its own mockup of the iPhone 6, using a 3D printer. You cannot buy this mockup anywhere, but it’s good material to look at. What is very striking is the size of the new iPhone. If this is an accurate version of what will become the next iPhone, then the device will be a lot larger than its predecessor. MacRumours writes the device will be so large that one-handed operation will be difficult.
Well, there you go – check out some pictures by MacRumours of the long awaited iPhone 6:
