    Some of you may of heard about my project, but im currently selling 3D printed cases for the HTC 8X. I want to start selling them for the Lumia 920, but I ran into a big of a snag.

    I purchased a display model 920 on Ebay, and sent it off to be 3D scanned. My plan was to use the 3D scan as a template for the case. Without that, I cant make the case. The problem is, the display model IS NOT the same size or shape as a REAL 920!!!!! The display model is 12MM thick vs the 10.7MM of the real 920, and there are a lot of other problems with the curvs and slight differences. This means the expensive 3D scanning I just paid for is WORTHLESS!!!!

    The 3D scanner resides in Portland Or, and I was hoping a local 920 owner would be willing to spend an hour out of there day to let it be scanned. If we can get this to work, I will release the scan to the community so they can make there own cases (with the proper skills), but I really want to get this done.

    Please PM me if your in that area and willing to help. Also it will help to have a non-glossy 920. Scans have a hard time picking up on the glossy surface.

    Here is what my cases look like..

    Thanks. I have many designs and all are customizable on request. They will go for about 20-25$ and will add a little scuff protection.

    Thanks. I still haven't gotten a reply from SleepingWeasle yet, so I would still like to find a 920 owner in Portland as a backup. Anyone?

    Sorry, I got called out of the country unexpectedly by work. I should be back by the end of the week, so I'll scan it and send you the file next weekend if you still want it.

    Not a problem. Do you have access to any other phones like the 822 or Ativ S? I can make cases for any phone I can get scanned in.
