Every year Apple fans get in a frenzy trying to predict what the next iPhone will look like. This year things haven’t changed as fans await the coveted iPhone 6, which is expected to be announced sometime in early fall. This iphone-3year, unlike years previous, 3D printers are much more popular, giving those predicting how Apple’s flagship product will look, another weapon in their arsenal.

Approximately six weeks ago, the Japanese magazine, MacFans published alleged drawings of Apple’s future 4.7 inch and 5.7 inch iPhone models. The drawings gave specific dimensions and details as to the orientation of the phone’s components. MacRumors then took these drawings of the 4.7 inch smartphone and translated them into a 3D model, which they then printed.

Using their 3D printer, they created almost an exact replica of what the new iPhone 6 will look like, provided that the drawings from MacFans are accurate. The 3D model was created by a man named Martin Hajek, who has decided to make the files available for download at TurboSquid.  Included in the package, if you are willing to dish out the $25 fee, are the files in .STL format for 3D printing as well as .3DS and .OBJ modeling files.   Once purchased, anyone can 3D print their very own iPhone 6, without any of the important components of course.

It is important to note that although a tremendous number of mock-ups, and now a 3D print have been produced, they have all been created using the leaked drawings from MacFans. This means that if those drawings are inaccurate, then none of these proposed mock-ups will end up looking like the actual device.  Nonetheless, this just shows another creative use for 3D printing, even though it may be a bit of a time waster.

What do you think about this print?  Let us know at the 3D printed iPhone 6 forum thread at 3DPB.com. Below you will find an image comparing the 3D printed version of the new iPhone, in white, to that of previous models, in black.
