Robotics Engineer Creates Repairable AirPods Pro Case [Video]

Robotics engineer Ken Pillonel, who previously created the first USB-C AirPods Pro case, has now designed a repairable case for AirPods Pro.

Building on the success of my previous projects, which included 3D-printed cases for various AirPods models and custom USB-C parts, I am now addressing the demand for more eco-friendly solutions. Instead of offering just outer shells for the AirPods Pro, I took on the challenge of meticulously modeling every single part of the device, essentially 'stealing' the design, and sharing them freely with everyone. These designs have been thoughtfully modified to include screws and nuts, making them easily swappable and repairable - a stark contrast to the original parts, frustratingly glued together with strong adhesives. Considering the enormous number of AirPods Pro units sold, even a small percentage being repairable and extending their lifespan can make a significant impact in reducing electronic waste.

The repairable AirPods Pro case design is available at no cost. Instructions on how to get the files can be found in the video embedded below...
