For most, three-dimensional printing is far from becoming a part of everyday life. But for others, it’s a fascinating pastime where absolutely anything is possible.
3D printing doesn’t need to be grandiose, though. Instead, it can be used for whatever you may be doing.
We’ve been browsing the Thingiverse database and found five great ways that 3D printing can enhance your Lumia experience with cool accessories.
If you own a Lumia 1020 and a bicycle or motorbike, there’s a good chance you want to strap your Lumia to the front of your bike and make use of GPS.
This useful holder from RenatoT bolts onto the front of your bike, allowing you to put your phone to use while you cycle. There’s also a hole for the camera should you want to film your journey.
As a community, Thingiverse allows its members to download existing models, adapt them to make their own, and share again.
As an idea, it’s simple. Rather than leaving your Lumia 1020 to lay flat on the table, why not allow it to stand tall?
Perfect for either the work desk or the bedside table, this Lumia 1020 stand incorporates a hole at the bottom where you can feed in your charger.
Along those same lines, this desktop stand is designed to fit the Lumia 1520 minus the charging port – shared by NemoNiente.
How’s this for an interesting holder?
Rather than standing freely, this one clips onto the side of a table and leaves your Lumia 520 standing tall – by feriva.
Naturally, your table may be thicker or thinner than those in the photos, but because you can download these 3D designs, you can make the necessary measurement adjustments before printing.
4ndreas has created and shared a cover for the Lumia 930 or Lumia Icon.
Printed in red with hexagonal designs on the back, the smartphone cover makes quite a unique accessory for your Lumia.
Don’t like red? Change the filament to any colour you like before printing. The choice is yours.
All designs here can be downloaded, modified, printed and shared again within the Thingiverse community.
