Functional AirPods Case Designs

1. Simple 3D Printed AirPods Case / PhoneStand

If you like to watch videos on your phone, you’ll love this 3D-printed AirPods case with a detachable lid that doubles as a phone stand.

You won’t need any supports for the lid, but the rounded base may require them. These potential supports have not been included with the STL files, so you may need to add those settings yourself.

2. Case With Pocket Clip

Whether you’ve got small pockets or are just sick of rooting around in your jacket or bag for your AirPods, this handy – and very easy – print is the perfect solution for you. Featuring a sturdy pocket clip, this case attaches to your pants or belt for easy access when on the go.

For ensured sturdiness, you’ll want to print it with at least 90% infill, this will make sure frequent jostling as you walk won’t break the clip.

The design was made to need neither supports nor rafts, and the infill settings are entirely up to you, so this is a great print for beginners who want a simple but functional 3D printed AirPod case.

Character-Inspired AirPod Cases

6. Among Us 3D Printed Airpods Case

Among Us fans will probably already have realized that the playable characters are the perfect shape for an AirPod case, which is where this awesome – and not at all sus – little case is a great print for fans of the ever-popular online game.

This print has two versions, horizontal and vertical, so you can choose whichever works according to your taste and printer specs. Beginners will also be happy to know that this print requires nothing by way of specific settings, so you can easily scale it to suit your own AirPod model.

Just be advised that the STL files are only sized for standard AirPod models, so you may need to scale the design in your slicer to suit any larger or smaller models you may own.

9. Mandalorian AirPods Charger

Mandalorian 3D Printed AirPod Case

Star Wars fans who love The Mandalorian will almost certainly want to 3D print this impressively detailed AirPod case featuring the show’s titular mercenary. Its high resolution makes it one of the most visually impressive AirPod cases on this list, and is a great way to test your printer’s capabilities without printing anything too complicated.

These STL files were remixed to fit the AirPods Pro model, so if you use standard AirPods, then you should instead check out the original design.

Simple 3D Printed AirPod Case Protector

This very simple two-part AirPod case protector is the perfect print for those of you who want to prevent scratches and damage to your case without resorting to overly complex or difficult prints.

Due to its rounded shape, you will need to use both rafts and supports to make sure it prints well, but these have been accounted for in the included STL files.

Simple 2

17. AirPod and iPhone Multipurpose Holder

3D Printed AirPod Case for Phones

This deceptively simple design is perfect for those of you who want to make sure your iPhone and AirPods are in the same place at all times. Acting as a phone stand, it also includes a slot for a standard-sized AirPod case so you never have one without the other.

Be advised that it is designed for an iPhone 7, so you may need to use your slicer software to reshape it to suit your own iPhone’s size. You may also need to do the same for the AirPod case holder if you’ve decided to print any of the cases or protectors in this list, as they’ll add a layer of thickness.
