My Note 2 phone case collection

Post by DrewPetitclerc » Wed Jun 19, 2013 8:54 pm

Hi, All
I wanted to share a few of my phone case designs printed on my "Up Plus Pro" ("Pro" due to my mods).

My IronMan case, ABS, black base, gold, red and silver cover panels, 28 M2x4mm SHCS, 1 mini arc reactor (my personal design).

Here is another couple of covers.
These two I began using the 1.19 software and utilized the semi automate "Pause" function to change colors mid print, it works, I'm now looking into having a couple of extra "feed tubes" mounted to make the color swap even faster.

Halo, Master Chief, our favorite FPS at my house also matches my shoes that day.
Check my Deviant art page for images of the shoes.

Portal 2, I plan to redo this one I'm adding a figure below the logo of 2 portals with the stick figure passing through.

Similar to how women match a purse to shoes? He matches phone cases to his shoes. Even has a pair of Halo custom-painted sneakers.

Drew,
Congratulations, you have got the British Union flag the right way up. You would be surprised how many people, including Brits, have no idea which way up it should be.

cheers

Peter

Thank you, I wanted not to cause any trouble as I'm giving relatives a red white and blue penny money clip as a 4th of July gift.

...I always thought that was just a joke. Is the union jack not symmetric??

nick,
the union flag is assymetrical. the red diagonal is offset such that when it is on a flag pole the upper red diagonal closest to the pole should be in the lower part of the white diagonal, i.e. more white above the red than below. convention also has it that when the flag is printed or shown not on a pole the lefthand side of the flag should be as though it was closest to the pole, i.e. printed with the left side upper red diagonal with more white above than below. it is rumoured that the union flag flown upsidedown represents a distress signal and was used by british warships, certainly in the time of Nelson. in other words british warships could signal they were in trouble to other british ships without the enemy, the french, realising it !

a further note, it is not, the union jack. it should only be referred to as that when it is attached to the jack staff of a british naval vessel.

we once crossed the atlantic on the QM2, on departure from NY at the ramp onto the ship they had several Union and US flags crossed together. i got quite irate that a couple of pairs had the Union flag upside down. When i pointed this out the US authorities just shrugged their shoulders, but the got somewhat mad when i tried to rearrange the flags by turning the US flag upsidedown!!

cheers

Drew,
Asit happens it would make no differernce holding the phone upside down. Rotating the flag image does not invert the pattern as the pattern is such that the It is only if you had a transparent phone and looked at thew pattern through the phone that it would be the wrong way around, if you see what I mean.

cheers

Peter
