MakerBot Launches New MakerBot-Ready App with Fraemes
BROOKLYN, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Don't just cover your phone, "Fraeme" it! MakerBot is excited to
announce a new MakerBot®-Ready App, Fraemes. Fraemes is an
interchangeable and ready-to-print case for iPhones, which enables
complete customization and total self-expression.

Fraemes is the second MakerBot-Ready App to be announced since the
MakerBot Developer Program launched in June. The MakerBot Developer
Program aims to provide developers the resources needed to integrate
with the MakerBot 3D Ecosystem and to access the growing 3D printing
market. The MakerBot Developer Program also includes 3D printing
capabilities in desktop, mobile, tablet and console-based apps and
games, granting developers unprecedented access to MakerBot Replicator
3D Printing Platform for iOS, Android (News - Alert), Web and more.
"We are excited to partner with Fraemes as one of our approved
developers and offer 3D printable, customizable and personalized iPhone (News - Alert)
cases," noted Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. "Phone cases are always one
of the most popular items to 3D print and now with the MakerBot-Ready
App Fraemes, 3D printing customers can easily and simply customize
iPhones cases - with no design experience necessary!"
Users who purchase a Fraemes bumper can 3D print and insert as many
customized and personalized design "inserts" as they desire.
"When we worked on creating the Fraemes technology, simplicity was our
number one goal. We wanted to make it easy for designers and
non-designers to design and personalize in 3D," noted Sakunthala
Panditharatne, Fraemes' graphics engineer. With Fraemes, anyone can now
print and carry around their own completely original piece of art, and
change it up whenever they want."
How It Works
First, users connect their MakerBot account at fraemes.com/makerbot
and select a design from Fraemes' collection of professionally designed
inserts including cityscapes, pop culture icons, and monograms, each
customizable with shapes and text. Once the checkout process is
complete, users can then 3D print the designs directly from their
MakerBot Desktop Library.
Each insert fits into the Fraemes iPhone 5/5S bumper available for
purchase from fraemes.com.
Those who don't yet own a MakerBot Replicator® 3D Printer can still
personalize their Fraeme iPhone case by purchasing their own custom
Fraeme for $20 from a MakerBot Retail Store, located in New York, Boston
or Greenwich, Connecticut, where it is 3D printed and available for
pick-up. Digital files to download and bumpers to purchase are available
with digital files costing up to $1 and bumpers $12 each.
