Add some protection to your Nokia Lumia 920 with 3D printed cases

Lumia 920 Case

Should you not be familiar with Gibbage Cases, it's a home grown venture that utilises 3D printing to produce protective cases for mobile devices. We previously looked at the HTC 8X Windows Phone, but now Kevin "Gibbage" Miller has returned to our community forum with a sequel - for the Lumia 920. The above is the current design that's being produced as we speak, but Miller is looking out for someone to test the product in every day life.

We previously reviewed the cases for HTC 8X (with an awesome personalised version just for us), so we'll be interested in getting our paws on the new designs to fit our Lumia 920s and add that extra layer of protection - not that the Nokia Windows Phone can't survive some serious damage. Once the current design has been confirmed to fit perfectly, Miller will be looking for more design ideas, as well as volunteers to test the products.

You can check out the case design, fire out your suggestions, throw your hand up high for the test run, and view updates over on our forum

redeyss says:

carlosrdd says:

Same here I would to test one on my cyan Lumia

Looks little ugly but I know it's strong and protective

LEC 360 says:

I would definitely would love to try one.

xrs22 says:

Not bad...spider man. I'd give it a go and its white like my phone.

The ZennyBoy says:

Just curious, what material is the case made of?

kurtd says:

I'm wondering the same thing. The 3d printer we have makes hard plastic parts. Seems like the case would just scratch up the phone.

gibbage says:

The printers I use uses a soft nylon that's very strong and flexable. I have had one on my 8x for 3 months and no scratches. 3 concrete drops and no phone dmg. I also put the case on and off many many times

I wouldn't mind trying one on my Black Nokia Lumia 920.

pazces84 says:

oh man I want to see a review for this first before I get one. 

Would love to try one and might possibly make a video about it too :) 

walter1832 says:

You don't have to twist my arm, I'll test it for you.

jfa1 says:

I would be very happy to test one on my white nl 920

AussieMs says:

I recently dented my 920 and I've been wanting to test one, I actually was going to get an 8x because those cases are so awesome

rodneyej says:

Yeah, I have to test this out. I would like something that will protect my phone but show it off at the same time. My red Lumia 920 is the best looking device ever made, IMO.. I'd be honored to give one of these cases a test run, and would give my honest opinion about its looks, and performance.

gibbage says:

Its a quick temp design, the same first design I did with the 8x. There will be many more to choose from once its done testing!

I would love to try it out.. Been looking for a case which isn't ugly and did like your 8x designs.. In California though..

SomeGuy11 says:

Please please please! Since none of us can get a grey Lumia 920 how bout a grey case cover my black Lumia? Save me from buying a Bodygaurdz!

xrs22 says:

Other colors would be a plus.

gibbage says:

Sorry.  Due to the limitations of the material, I can only offer it in white as a "paint your own" option.  The dye's used in the coloring process by the 3D printers will stain your phone, and im not willing to risk someone's $600 as a test on the 920.

namflow says:

The one I bought for my 8x broke pretty easily, wouldn't recommend it.

gibbage says:

Did you buy the Alumide?  I have a lot of warnings all over my web page and Shapeways that said that Alumide is very brittle and for cosmetic purposes ONLY.  The white nylon is amazingly strong.  I have since removed the Alumide option.

namflow says:

I did buy alumide but it was when they were very first for sale, right before you pulled them down for a bit. There were no warnings then.

depeche242 says:

Pretty cool looking! I'd be up for a test run. ;)

frenzydude says:

Love to try one on my cyan 920

feardrew says:

I like the looks of the case. I'll test it out, gladly.

Ocelott says:

I would love a test case

Have you found a tester yet for the case? Any idea when you planning on making them available for purchase?

gibbage says:

If everything goes well on the prototype, 2-3 weeks before sales start.  Keep an eye on the 920 forums here at WPCentral and I will post updates there.
