The 3D printing community project will see the release of a development kit so people can create their own shell for the Lumia 820.

In the future, Nokia will encourage users to print their own phone cases for the Lumia 820 by offering 3D Printing Development Kits. In addition to the Lumia 820’s range of removable shells that come in different colors, that are ruggedized, or have wireless charging capabilities, users will now be able to create custom shells as part of Nokia’s 3D printing community project.

In a conversation on the official Nokia blog, Community & Developer Marketing Manager John Kneeland said the project includes the release of a 3D Printing Development Kit with templates, case specs, recommended materials, and best practices. This makes Nokia the first major phone company to begin embracing the 3D printing community. Kneeland also commented:
