   Nokia backs 3D printing for mobile phone cases   





Nokia is releasing design files that will let owners use 3D printers to make their own cases for its Lumia phones

Files containing mechanical drawings, case measurements and recommended materials have already been released by the phone maker. Those using the files will be able to create a custom-designed case for the flagship Lumia 820 handset. The project makes Nokia one of the first big electronics firms to seriously back 3D printing.

I'm not too surprised that someone has adopted this idea.  It seems like a great marketing ploy for a company that wants to sway the decision of those whom might be considering their product and actually have the money to afford one of the 3-D printers.

I dig the way they do business. Actually, I'm digging all the new technology that is slowly but surely coming out, as long as it's not abused by the powers that be. Technology is a two edged sword.
