Customize It: Design And Print Your Own Nokia Phone Case!


These days you can customize your playlist, your online news, your Netflix queue. Why stop at the digital? The mobile device company Nokia says you should be able to customize the physical products you hold in your hand every day, like the shell of your cell phone.

Today we announce our partnership with Nokia that lets anyone with a MakerBot download and make a shell for two of its latest phones, the Lumia 820 and the Lumia 520. When Nokia released these files back in January, we optimized them for printing on a MakerBot Replicator 2. The result is a shell that fits nicely around the phone with fully functional buttons.

But that’s just a start. We’ve combined this design with the power of MakerBot Customizer, an app on our website Thingiverse that turns a certain kind of 3D design into a customizable template. Now you really can make this piece your own. Click here to find the design on Nokia’s awesome Thingiverse page and click “Open in Customizer” to get started. You can change the pattern in a bunch of different ways, and you can add your own text in a few different fonts.

Oh yeah, and you can win one!

MakerBot and Nokia are out at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and attendees of the event are getting a look at what it means to have part of a brand new phone made on a MakerBot. Check out twitterer @MichaelxHell above showing off the customized shell of his new Lumia 820. Sharp!

To get yours, follow these guidelines from Nokia:

For a chance to win your very own personalised 3D-printed case, all you have to do is tweet @Nokia_Connects using the hashtag #Lumia820 – something fun, entertaining, witty.

Every day we will pick a few tweets that have used the hashtag and print a personalised Lumia 820 case for them. Runners-up attending MWC will win a custom patterned case by MakerBot.

It is truly awesome that Nokia is coming on board with the 3D printing revolution. The good people there are genuinely excited to see how all of us will enhance their products with our own creativity. Let’s get going!

Breaking News: Nicki Minaj Discovered Inside Replicator

Posted by on Wednesday, April 11, 2012 in Uncategorized

Our eye-in-the-sky @MattRichardson clued us into something we have always suspected: Nicki Minaj might actually be a perfectly MakerBotted 3D sculpture.

The proof is in the picture from The Verge, but you can be the judge:

Okay, yes The Replicator is open source and you can find the files on Thingiverse, but we really hadn’t anticipated that someone would use them to create a giant Replicator stage in Times Square and print out a pop star. I mean is it still science “fiction” or more like science reality? Answer below!

A: this is fiction, the regular kind.
