This life size 3D recreation of the Lumia 920 was created by miniFactory using their 3D printer. The challenge is to print a 3D model where the height is close to the maximum capacity of the Z-axis. The Lumia 920 3D model was 130.3mm tall, luckily it is within the range limits for miniFactory Z-axis which is 140mm.
The settings are:
- Layer height: 0.1mm
- Nozzle diameter: 0.35mm
- Filament diameter: 1.75mm
- Retraction settings: 1.5mm @ 45mm/s
- Perimeters: 2
- Solid infills: 4 layers
- Infill: 0%
The result is satisfactory. Printed object was measured and compared to original dimensions of the Nokia Lumia 920 3D model.
The original height of the 3D model is 130.3mm, printed object 130.94mm. Original width was 70.8mm, printed measured 71.26mm and the original thickness was 10.7mm and printed object popped out measuring 11.13mm. It is possible to make small enhancements to the settings of X- and Y-axes to affect the width and thickness of the printed Lumia 920.
The wall thickness of the printed object is only about 0.7mm, it feels comfortable in hand the durability seems to be quite good.
Total time spent on this project: 5 hours including 3D modeling and printing. A picture of WP8 start screen was added later.
The fully assembled miniFactory 3D printer is designed by miniFactory in Finland. It is claimed after installing programs and drivers your own miniFactory is ready to start printing things in under six minutes. It is small-sized, light-weighted and affordable 3D printer.
