    Yesterday, designer Martin Hajek started selling a $25 set of 3D files that allow you to print your own 4.7-inch iPhone 6 mockup using a 3D printer. Today, a second set of 3D plans for both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 were released by MacRumors forum user Arthur Tilly and made available for free on Thingiverse.

    Using measurements available from leaked design drawings, the plans allow anyone with access to a 3D printer to print out the alleged iPhone 6 design and see how it feels in their hand. The set includes an .STL file for 3D printing and an editable OpenSCad file that can be used to modify the design and add some of the missing details like the Apple logo.
    There has been no shortage of renderings of the rumored iPhone 6 that provide an advance look at the possible shape and size of Apple's upcoming smartphone. A new post from Taiwanese blog AppleCorner provides precise measurements of 138 x 67 x 7.0 mm obtained from one of these mockups, while a Sonny Dickson leak shows physical mockups in roughly the current three colors used on the iPhone 5s.

    While there are a variety of cases and mockups all pointing in the same direction for the design of the iPhone 6, it is important to remember that most of these products are essentially all based on the same sets of leaked design drawings, and they ultimately may or may not prove correct.

    I love Apple products as much as the next guy; but 3D printing your own mockup of what someone supposes the next iPhone will be is a little too "out there" for me.

    Print out iPad

    This reminds me of the guy who found the damsons to the first iPad and put them out online so people could print it ( on a normal ink printer ) and fold it to be the size and shape of an iPad so you could know what it feels like in your hands. The link was on this site but it was so long ago no way would I be able to find it .

    Will there be regular size iPhone 6?

    Everyone is talking about new bigger iPhones, but if I wanted a brick in my pocket I'd go with Samsung or similar. I want regular size iPhone 6, same width as iPhone 5 all other before. Will it be available? :mad:

    Yeah... I mean maybe in 10 years when we all have 3D printers at home but until then yes this is a bit to far :D

    that 5.5" mockup is looking very very nice and flat, think about Note 3 but thinner and metal build...omg for those who wants 5.5-5.7" this will be the solution

    The second somewhat lengthy article this week on a homemade 3D iPhone mockup, really MR?

    Forget about the iPhone 6, dude. Look at your name.

    I suspect if they do go with a larger screen as everything seems to be indicating, there will be a transition away from the grid of app icons that we've known iOS for since the beginning. It makes no sense to me to use additional screen real estate just for another row or two of icons. I think iOS 8 will focus on the function of iOS in the same way iOS 7 focused more on the form/looks of iOS.

    Yes MR, we get it!!!

    A new iphone in different sizes is coming.
    No longer "news" or a rumor.

    Would be nice to have MR move that kind of stuff to page two until we have some real info!
    Same old info and gyration for weeks now!

    Time to skip things until we see the first home button blurred shot and a box copy shot:)

    If these are legit design files, how will Apple feel about this d-bag selling them to others?

    Not to mention, this mockup nonsense has got to stop - it's tedious.

    Is this so we can feel what an iPhone would be like if Samsung manufactured it?

    This is great news. I'm going to walk around with one of these like I am some kind of big wig with connections at Apple so the ladies will be impressed.

    I just hope they don't ask me to power it on. :p

    Funny. Unfortunately, my funds are not so unlimited that I can be that big of an early adopter and don't work for a company that has on either. Anyway, wake me up when someone posts and old fashioned "fold here," "insert tab A into tab B" version. Curious to feel the actual size of this imaginary phone for some reason.
