World’s first 3D printed Lumia 820 shell


In what is believed  to be a phone manufacturer first, Nokia is providing the mechanical drawings for the Lumia 820’s back shell so you can modify and enhance the design then print it out on a 3D printer.

Now it’s up to you to come up with practical, innovative, or downright crazy concepts to put onto your phone. Some ideas we had include:


  • Built-in belt clip or loop
  • Attachment point for camera accessories
  • Raised texture for non-slip grip
  • Winding post for headphone cable


  • Car mount
  • Bicycle mount
  • Backpack hanger


  • Camera accessories
  • Extra SIM or MicroSD holder

Visit Nokia’s  3D printing wiki page to learn more and to download the files to begin designing and printing.
