Makerbot prints out a Nokia Lumia 820 cover

| January 19, 2013 | 15 Replies


Makerbot is probably one of the more well known 3D Printers, especially so because their 3D printers are designed to be more affordable than your regular sort.


Continuing the story about Nokia’s DIY printable Nokia Lumia 820 covers, the folks at Makerbot have actually given this a go and printed their own Nokia covers.



We’ve taken the file for the Nokia Lumia 820 custom removable shell and optimized it to work with the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer. It’s an awesome shell that fits great!

To read more about this sweet file from Nokia.


I guess if you wanted to (and knew how to), you could modify the template so it includes an optional tilt stand. For future Nokia models it could be additional attachments slots for lenses, wrist straps, tripods etc, etc.

    That’s awesome! They just released the files yesterday and a manufacture of 3D printing equipment is already doing it.

    I don’t see any other companies doing this. Winner:Nokia!

    Makes me want to get a 820 to play around with. Jay’s idea of slots makes me think of adding thread mount and and a beefy scatter guard to the lens and LED

      Since this makes the shells interchangeable for different type circumstances, could you add a expanded storage for different attachable camera lens below the camera area? Making the phone into more of a point and shoot size phone using Jays slot idea? Using Jays slot idea, could we have an emergency medical kit that we switch to for camping and or road travel that we could use if we come across an accident? What would Jay say should be in the storage for such use? Take your phone to work and switch to your work shell?
