We were happy to show you a 3D printed Nokia Lumia 820 file that’s functional. But now  it’s time for some fun; Enjoy our big customization show!

A man once said: “Show me your friends and I’ll show you who you are.” At i.materialise we have an other saying: “Show me your 3D prints and we will show you who you are.” 3D printing is all about personalizing and customization. We just launched our basic file on Thingiverse as you can read in our previous blog. But that doesn’t suffice for us. So the past days and hours we let our product designer Bert go wild with the Nokia shell.

Enjoy the results; we hope you’ll be inspired.

What does a man need more than his phone his (credit) card to go out? So here you go, all in one:

3D printed in polyamide and dyed in red.

A Nokia shell with wings, it doesn’t fly, but hey; we gave it a try!

3D printed in resin, finished with white paint.

Do you want a softer look? Go for velvet, it feels great!

3D printed in polyamide, finished with blue velvet

It’s so soft..

Not only customization is an option, why don’t you make the shell a real functional design in your everyday activities?

    Hello, do you have a CAD program to open the file?

  • Patrick

    Can i somehow order that bicycle cover?

  • Tatiana

    Dear Patrick

    Nokia put the files on their website so people can print their own cover, but they don”t want anyone to use it for commercial reasons. So we don”t sell this cover, but you can download your own 3D printable cover on our Thingiverse page: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:45221
