Would someone who has been playing with the 3D-printed cases like to post a
comment in response to this comment on lwn.net reporting the sort of quality
you are getting?

Thanks,
NeilBrown

Now THAT is customization. I love the idea of tweaking a cadfile and
printing my own case on Shapeways. Suck it iPhone laser engraving! :)

In my experience, 3D printing is stout where the walls are thick enough
but thin stuff like clip tabs and flanges just break off. Most
prototypes I've played with have been rather heavy and screwed together.

Any idea on how these cases will stand up in the real world?
