So what is the TriStand? The TriStand iPhone case is a stylish, rugged and most importantly practical snap on 3D Printed protective case for your iPhone with flip out integrated stands; these can be used in different combinations to produce very geometrically stable stands to stand the iPhone in 1 of 3 orientations, a portrait orientation and 1 of 2 angles on both of the landscape orientations, one is great for typing, and the other is great for watching videos. The flip out stands fold flush to the case and ‘snap’ into place when not in use to stop the stands from opening by themselves. All this while keeping the thickness of the case at only 2.25mm (and 1.5mm at the sides).
Check out the YouTube Video of the case in action.
The TriStand QR also has a cutout in the case to add a Customised 3D Printed QR Code, QR Code stands for Quick Response Code and was initially invented for the manufacturing industry to track parts being produced, however today, these codes are popping up everywhere and are extremely useful; this code can have any information you want on it from plain text to a URL or a virtual business card. You can now exchange contact details using a simple barcode scanner on your smartphone by scanning this code. Blank covers are also available in a range of colours for those who do not want a QR code on their case.
The TriStand QR is 3D printed for you when you order fully assembled in a grippy, strong, rugged and lightweight plastic polyamide material in the colours in the drop down box labelled ‘Select Material’ in the top right of the page.
