I’m a bit of an offline/outdoor enthusiast and would like to adapt the FP2 to my needs there. Unfortunately the official(?) statement is that custom/3D printed cases are not available. I can understand that from the fact that the standard case has a rubber edge. However there are several things I would like to change (or see changed):
- easier access to battery (for exchanging it on a three-day hike)
- easier access to SD card (keeps dropping out of connection without the ability to reconnect, needs to be removed and remounted often; yes, it would be even better if this problem were just fixed)
- easier access to the SIM slots (when travelling and using local prepaid SIMs)
- holes for a strap (I once dropped my phone into a rock crevasse in the Alpstein massiv and only managed to retrieve it three days later with the help of a custom-built device)
I’m just not comfortable with having to remove the tightly sitting cover every time I want to do one of those things. Is there somebody who modified a standard case in such a way? So far I only managed to add the strap. Take a 2mm drill, make a vertical and a horizontal hole where the lower display clamps are and fiddle through them a 2mm line from the closest outdoor store (not all have them).
I could drill several 40-50mm holes into the case and have a matching cover 3D printed with screw holes etc but isn’t there a better, less destructive way? Any help would be appreciated!
