    Lightbulb i.materialise's experience with 820

    We are reposting this comment by i.materialise (from the wiki) because we thought it might be useful.

    First of all: thank you Nokia for embracing additive manufacturing or '3D printing' & joining the 3D printing revolution. i.materialise, part of Materialise, is intrigued by this action. That's why we have put our knowledge and engineering skills to help this file being 3D printable, customizable ánd functional. We have printed tests with various 3D printers (in various materials) and saw some points of improvements. You can read about it on our blog: http://i.materialise.com/blog/entry/...-piece-of-cake

    In the following days we will deliver improved files for different printers so people can print their own shell with functional buttons etc..

    And we're continuing the story. Day two of 3D printing some more tests: http://i.materialise.com/blog/entry/will-it-print-taking-the-nokia-lumia-820-shell-tests-a-level-higher
    and the first, 3D printed functional design: http://i.materialise.com/blog/entry/...-print-is-born

    Great work! Thanks for your efforts on this.

    I've added a note to the wiki that the models will probably need some degree of optimization for each printer type. Certainly for the extrusion type printers, there is cooling shrinkage to take into account, and that differs based on material choice, whether or not you're using a heated bed, etc. Everybody has their own favorite temperature settings, so there are probably slight differences just in scaling for that.

    Lots to learn, but that's what makes it fun!
