Default Applying 3M Di-Noc Carbon Fiber Film

More Modding fun with 3M Di-Noc carbon fiber film


3M DI-NOC Black carbon fiber film

This times it's modding an iphone... Pretty easy, just don't cover the camera lense!







Trace around the backside





Using Xacto knife to cut the opening for the camera







Start alignment of the application at the camera lense. Lay your phone down on soft surface, so you won't scratch the screen!



You can use credit card or drivers license, di-noc surface is very resilient



Using Xacto on steel surface to cut off excess matrial



There you have it!

I like the fact you allow up to a 24x24 piece.. but why not 36x36?

Very nice stuff. How pliable is the carbon fiber film when heated with a hair dryer?

@_dangtx_, it's very easy.

@dma0991, it's very pliable. You can stretch it too.

3M Di-Noc Carbon Fiber Film "Crumple" Test video I made.

I found using a heatgun to make it a little more pliable works wonders for rounded corners.

I have been meaning to do my 360 controller, I guess I will have to add some on my next order.

Thanks again for the vids/tips
