Sculpteo Offers Easy Custom 3D Printed iPhone Cases
Sculpteo recently launched 3DPCase, an iOS app that lets users easily design and order their own custom 3D-printed iPhone case, fitting either an iPhone 4 or 5. Users can use one of several templates, each of which allows different customizations to the shape of the case. One template lets users choose a location in Google Maps to apply the topography of that terrain to the back of the case. Another template lets users take a photo and use the silhouette of a person's face as part of the edge of the case.

It has subtle rough ridges in the nylon surface. One benefit is that the cases have excellent grip in your hands. Also, the rough texture will hide the inevitable small dings and scratches. It's a neat idea.
