How much would you pay for such a thing? assuming it can fit up to a 15" model and has some foam glued to the inside for added protection?
I tried looking into laptop cases/bags, but there doesn't seem to be much out there? at least not for a decent price.
Also don't know exactly how durable it would be assuming it's printed in some form of PLA due to the size of it, it would be all in one piece.
$50, $100? Are there already decent laptop cases I'm just not able to find?
Not to mention that the cost of 3dprinting such a big thing.
(stable under reduction)
i don't mind at all if it would crack on a drop, assuming its reasonably priced. With foam inside it would still do its job of absorbing the impact of the drop and protecting the laptop, so i'd happily buy another (repeat orders).
another alternative is just making custom 3D printed corner protectors which fit on a neoprene case - as that's the parts needing protection when dropped.
you could also make something stronger if you had any interest in vacuum forming them

I have a leather case for my X61 Tablet, & it came with a strap, which was handy. Now its warped to hell thanks for me not using it, but I got it for carrying around at a park & then just drawing what I saw.
I'd say make a custom unit for your laptop, showcase it online and see what people think. But with the practicality of having 3D printing done in major cities, you might get clients or customers who'd configure on their own, thus a lost sale.

I've always dreamed of a lightweight hard case with foam padding inside for my x220/x230. Never found one. Did you?
