This has been an exciting project for those involved, and I'm so glad to finally see it published! And this is just the beginning!

Oh, one quibble: that's Lumia, not Lumina. ;-)

Henrik, I tweeted a suggestion to Nokia last year, and have acted as a consultant, but John Kneeland did the real work.

You're a living proof how a loyal believer can guide even the biggest ships to fresh waters. This is plain inspiring to hear. clap clap clap to John and you.

Thanks duann :-D
all that time wasted registering on the nokia developer website just to find you leaving a comment saying the model is available on shapeways. ;-)

Agreed this is a great step forward.

My pleasure,

It looks as though the buttons are currently too thin to print at 0.3mm but the rest has been printed, should have some photos tomorrow.

Thanks Henrik and Randall! I never would have set about pushing big Nokia to get this done were it not for Randall's one fateful (and inspirational!) tweet in the first place. :-)

Yeh i noticed that too...
... also it might be important to mention that the models are distributed under a 'non-commercial licence'.

Duann, how did the test turn out? Curious to see your results, especially after i.materialise's post yesterday.

Hi, I tried to order a printed cover from you but it didn't go through? (Could not print).
