For a project for my 3D class I'm making and iPhone 4. I have the iPhone 4 CAD drawing PDF from apple's website that I'm using for the dimensions. I don't know much about drafting, so I may be overlooking this, but I can't find what dimensions to fillet the rounded corners to. Does anybody out there know what it is? Am I just overlooking it? I know I could just guess and nobody would know the difference, but I'd like this to be accurate. Thanks for any help.

you just said you have the iPhone cad drawing, doubt you'll find anything as technical as you are asking online

btw this thread sounds like you are trying to brag, there's no reason you would need to be 100% accurate for an art project. completely different story if this was for manufacturing

I do have to agree, but if you are still looking it is around 30px

Not trying to brag. Just trying to explain why I'm asking the question I'm asking.

Maybe I should restate my question:

Does anybody know the corner radius of the iPhone 4 corners?

It looks to me as though the center point of the camera lense (8.77 from the left) lines up vertically with the start of the radius on the top left corner of the phone; or close enough for your purposes. I would try that and see what it looks like.

BTW, what software are you using to model?

Trying to brag? What a d-bag statement. The guy asked a simple question that anyone who's taken a CAD class or works with CAD would understand

+1

Seriously? He can't ask a simple question and get an answer?

Sounds like somebody is mad they flunked out of art school.

So, it would be pretty safe to say it's an 8.77mm radius (since that's the distance from the center of the rear camera to the edge). I probably should have noticed that before. Thanks everybody! I'm in a beginning Lightwave class, btw.

A) he has the apple cad drawing
b) it show you the radius and distance of everything
c) I guess I mistook his lack of knowledge for trying to brag my bad

As someone who did CAD design using a CNC machine in high school (BASIC bitches!) I can attest that it is a time consuming process, but it's really not that difficult if you don't have to worry about making a final design. almost any structure can be made with boxes and circles, the iPhone is no exception. Something more complicated(ie you have to approximate) would be something with flowing curves, like an infinity g37, or a soda bottle.

Op sorry for the diss, but I'll help you out.

a cad design doesn't always have every single dimension, sometimes those need to be inferred from the rest of the drawing. To answer your question, the metal band and the iPhone glass both have the same center point, as you noticed it's the center of the camera

Really I'm just happy to see the word "fillet." Haven't seen that one in a long time. Ahhh it seems so long since I bought home my copy of AutoCad from school on 10 floppy disks

If you're still trying to figure it out, it looks like if you draw out your basic rectangular shape which is 58.55 x 115.15 then use your auto fillet on those corners you'll end up with exactly the fillets you're looking for.

So, I hate to dig up old threads, but I have the same question about the iPhone 5 this time. And I'm still unsure about the iPhone 4 measurement. How did you decide it's the 8.77mm from the rear camera's iris center and not the 10.35mm from the front camera's iris?

Likewise, is the iPhone 5's 10.75mm or 7.35mm or 11.6mm?! See the green circles in the attached image.

11.6mm on the iPhone 5 seems like the logical number to me since it's where the glass ends and the aluminum backing begins. If you overlay the two phones there's pretty much no difference so I wonder how much tolerance really matters if you're making a plastic case (that's what I'm doing).

Thanks, all help is appreciated!

No one? Screw it, since they seem so close I'll use the closest measurement to the iPhone 4's 8.77 which is 9.28 on the iPhone 5 (seemed to have missed that when looking at the drawings earlier).

Hi! Did you find a solution? I'm just looking on web for the iPhone5 corner radius, but i can't find anything..
Thanks for support!

I'd assume that in the reality the corners are not just plain radius but tangentially continuous curves. Using plain radius would be quite 80ish from industrial design perspective.
But it is so close to radius that the drawings for casemakers don't need to reveal exact details. Cases are anyway flexible
