Nokia is releasing 3D printing files for its Lumia 820 handset so that owners can create their own covers.



Companies offering interchangeable covers or replacement shells for their smartphone handsets is nothing new, in fact it was Nokia that started the trend back in 1998 with the 5110 -- the first phone to feature Xpress-on covers. This, however, takes customization to a new level.

In the post, Nokia also claims that it is the first major phone manufacturer to freely hand over these files but, as 3D printing starts to catch on and becomes more mainstream, it probably won't be the last company to do so.
