Nokia 3-D Printing Challenge

Nokia 3-D Printing Challenge

Nokia has a reputation for design that’s bold and cutting-edge, with a touch of whimsy. The novelty of the Nokia 5110’s removable faceplates is one example, a feature that was reintroduced with the Lumia 820.  Well Nokia is taking that idea a step further with the 3D Printing Challenge and it’s generated a fair amount of interest since being announced last week. Pictured above is Makerbot's own contribution to the competition. Those of you with a 3-D printers can now design and create your own Lumia 820 cases and submit them to Nokia for consideration. The winning designer even has a chance to fly to Barecelona in February for Mobile World Congress. I think it’s time to get out my sketch pad.

  • Have to say I'm rather mystified how something that, I presume, covers the back of the phone is called a "faceplate." I tried going to the link, but I get a 404 error. Searching the Nokia site returns the same invalid URL (among others in the search result). The Nokia web site has a page for the 820 that has something like the item that is pictured above which it calls a "shell."

  • @edwin - fixed link, sorry about that
