By the time you spend the money on the necessary CAD and CNC design and have the necessary molds made, you will have to sell a LOT of these housings to even break even

Another thing that makes the market smaller yet? Most people use cases anyway, so there's no point in it for most people!!

Lol so I was thinking the whole day and end up buying the cf cloth and s chemicals lol, so expect the cf iPhone by the next week, Ive got cad project for Cnc done before, well and to take completely apart my iPhone is not a big deal I do it at least once in a week. So expect cf iPhone soon
By the way if I'll get it to work I'll make sure it's scratch proofed, so there's no need for extra case

If I was only worried about scratches I would just use the full body invisible shield. I use a case to help prevent internal damage if it gets dropped!!!

Oh lol but like how u can possible damage anything inside except the screen? There's no hdd, the mb is on 7 screws so it's tight, and the rest is just like ribbons. So I don't believe that if u drop the iPhone even from 5th floor anything will happen to it lmfao.

Well, once you get your carbon fiber shell done make sure to make a video of your 5 story drop test
pics would be nice though
Maybe I'll work on a shell made of Roquefort cheese, that would be cool, and you'd always have a snack if you got stranded ?!

Making a real carbon fiber housing for the iPhone would turn it into an iPod touch
Carbon Fiber is used to block radio waves.

Cause I'm always making mods to housings and have to try them out
03-23-2010, 09:18 AM #14
How about some pic's of these mods. I've been thinking about having my back cover replaced with diffrent color.
