MakerBot partners with Nokia to make 3D smartphone covers
MakerBot and Nokia have partnered to create a free downloadable 3D printing file to allow those interested in 3D printing to custom make their own phone case for the latest Nokia Lumia smartphones.
The ’’3D-printing Development Kit provides a 3D template and case specs for printing shell covers for two of Nokia's latest smartphones – the Nokia Lumia 820 and the newly announced Nokia Lumia 520.
Using the 3DK anyone with a MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer can print their own shell. Nokia and Makerbot are demonstrating the exciting possibilities for 3D printing at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 25-28.
Nokia launched its 3D-printing Development Kit in January, giving 3D-printing enthusiasts the ability make new shells for the Lumia 820 smartphones.
