CAD model of yoga 720 15"

2018-02-22, 6:10 AM

Hello,

 

I was wondering if lenovo has CAD models of their laptops available? I've never heard of a manufacturer ever doing this, but I figured I may as well ask.

 

I wasn't really happy with the only protective case I could find for my new laptop (the iPearl mCover series that you usually see on school loaner laptops), So I figured I'd make my own and 3D print in in maybe a softer nylon or a 95A polyeurathane rubber.

 

My other option is to see if the university has a 3d scanner big enough for 15" laptop but the actual model would give me the most accurate result.

 

Thanks!

Nick

It's probably available somewhere but I don't think you'd be able to find the files. It may sound like not a good option but either you need to model it by yourself of hire someone for to do it.

Yeah I've been searching the usual sites (grabcad, thingiverse, etc) and no luck there.

I've been experimenting with basically doing guess and check: approximating the radius and end position of the bottom curves and side angle, and then 3d printing a ridgid section to put up against it to see how close I am.

 

That and I realized I can attach it a lot easier by getting longer screws for the ones going around the perimeter,so it being an exact fit doesn't matter so much.

 

Edit: I bet if I wait a couple years someone will have done this, but with my luck I would've dropped it and bent in the frame by then.
