We have been hearing for the past few years how 3D printers would let users make everything from tiny screws to cars and everything in between in the future. According to Nokia, the future is here. The Finnish handset giant is giving out all the necessary files and instructions for 3D printer users to print their own back covers for the Lumia 820.
The 3D-Print Development Kit (3DK) has the 3D templates, case specs, recommended materials and best practices instructions, which can be found here, here and here. This is the first time that any handset vendor has done anything like this. Yes, your friendly neighborhood printing guy is unlikely to have a 3D printer and it is going to be super expensive to print just one custom case, but it is a good start nevertheless.
Let us know in the comments below what would you print if you had access to a 3D printer.
