Nokia announced it has released 3D printing designs that allow you to manufacture your own custom Lumia 820 back covers! Few people own a 3D printer, but it's still nice to see a major company supporting this emerging technology. You can find all the details at Nokia.
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.
In doing this, Nokia has become the first major phone company to begin embracing the 3D printing community and its incredible potential, and continue to be the leading phone company in this exciting field.
