Hi everyone,


I'm trying to find a dxf file to be able to be able to machine a frame for my project but cannot find one anywhere.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you are looking for an app that can read a dxf file in your phone try schemataCAD , or DWG FastView.

I'm looking for the dxf for the actual Galaxy Note 10 Plus frame. My project is making a custom Note 10 Plus.

You won't find what you need , but you can 3d scan it and convert the scanned output into a 3d model so you can either 3d print it or export it to a cnc machine

yeah Samsung is unlikely to give out that info, so you would likely need to get a fram and scan it to create a plot for the CNC as it will likely be kept under wraps to avoid imitation devices.

Sounds great, I hope you actually get this project going.
If you do, by all means, keep us posted on your progress.

What kind of customizations are you aiming for?
If you could build one with a removable battery/IR Blaster/LED notification/Dual-Sim + dedicated SD Card slot, we're all interested. (basically an updated Note 4)... 😁

Regardless of how you customize your Note 10+, we're all pulling for ya. ✌️

LOL, you forgot 3.5mm headphone jack... For shame...

For the moment its more of a aesthetic customisation... Changing the metal frame to a different material. But understanding how different materials affect signal strength etc is something I have to keep a close eye on.

I started with a simple update with the rear glass now clear instead of coloured. And this simple upgrade has started something now...lol🤦🏽*♂️

The glass is generally the factor in signal it's why they keep the glass external and why thing like the iPhone resourt to stuff like making the logo out of different materials and antenna lines in the metal case. so really changing the underlying frame shouldn't make much a difference if it is engineered near identical to the stock, the only difference may be an improvement if you move it to a non metallic material, but likely at the cost of strength. but really as long as you keep glass or other non shielded materials as the front and back you should be fine to do whatever to the internal frame as the metal running through will already be engineered to account for the signals.

it's likely that if you tried something like a full metal back you would then have problems with various signals likely including blocking NFC and wireless charging, but a near identical frame should follow the same rules as the stock metal one so would likely have the features in place to protect the signal no matter the material, as it will already be machined to account for the metal blocking signals.

but as said you would likely need to make your own plot of the frame using an existing frame and likely a fair bit of time to get it accurate. but it would be interesting to see if you could run a different material through the frame without adversely affecting heat distribution, strength and signals.
