Got a new Nokia Lumia 820 and have access to 3D Printer, then this news is for you. Nokia has released the mechanical drawings of Lumia 820 back panel, allowing owners to create their own custom interchangeable shells for the smartphone. The free 3D-printing Development Kit comes with 3D printers templates, case specs, recommended materials and best practices.
“Releasing the 3D printing files for Lumia 820: Nokia’s 3D printing community project is a simple concept with exciting potential. Our Lumia 820 has a removable shell that users can replace with Nokia-made shells in different colors, special ruggedized shells with extra shock and dust protection, and shells that add wireless charging capabilities found in the high-end Lumia 920 to the mid-range 820. Those are fantastic cases, and a great option for the vast majority of Nokia’s Lumia 820 customers. But in addition to that, we are going to release 3D templates, case specs, recommended materials and best practices—everything someone versed in 3D printing needs to print their own custom Lumia 820 case. We refer to these files and documents collectively as a 3D-printing Development Kit, or 3DK for short. This can be viewed as the spiritual successor to the great granddaddy of customizable phones, the Nokia 5110 and its rainbow collection of removable faceplates. To think, it’s been 15 years since the 5110 launched!”
