3D Printing a Pinephone Back Cover

Of course, I've only got a tiny printer, so I had to print it standing on it's side edge to get it to fit on the print bed.

The print quality wasn't high enough to actually use on my phone (I printed in PLA with 0.2mm layers for these initial attempts, will switch to a more appropriate material eventually) but it came close!

Here's a jumpy timelapse video of the case being printed that I posted to the fediverse last night:

There are also some pictures in this thread:

Has anyone gotten a good enough print to use on their phone yet? I'd love to hear about it!

I don't think an FDM printer is going to be able to print this, and SLA might be able.

I've created an STL file with FreeCAD and loaded it in Slic3r. I'm having a problem, the STL does not lie flat because the raised lip around the camera cutout. I'm wondering if anybody has fixed this problem.
