The iPhone 5 is right around the corner, with the official announcement coming tomorrow, September 12th, so this is about the time that accessory partners start to release their products. Of course that means that these partners get the iPhone 5 specs, at least the physical specs, before we do.

As part of their 3DPCase 3D printing app launch, Sculpteo is offering the first-ever customizable 3D printed iPhone 5 case. Starting tomorrow afternoon, customers will be able to use the 3DPCase iOS app to order their own customized case for their future iPhone 5. Each case will have the date and time printed on the inside on the case, so if you order a case on the first day, before the iPhone launch, you’ll have proof of your diehard Apple fandom.

Sculpteo clarifies that the cases will be adapted to fit the iPhone 5, since the cases are available before the specs are released to the public. Obviously, Sculpteo is not going to leak the details themselves.

With the popularity of 3D printing on the rise, this is a great idea, and will hopefully cut down on the number of cookie cutter accessories. Sculpteo customizable cases will be affordable, with costs starting at $19.95.

Paris September 11, 2012. As part of the launch of the3DPCaseby Sculpteo app, Sculpteo will enable people to customize and order an iPhone 5 case from the 3DPCase by Sculpteo app starting from Wednesday afternoon (European time) before the official Apple announcement in the US.

Each unique iPhone case will be printed with the date and time when it is ordered, which will be marked on the inside of the case. Therefore, people who order them on the 12thSeptember will have a case which will be one of the first ever cases ordered on the day (or even before) the iPhone 5 is launched!

Due to the fact that it will be possible to order the cases before the layout of the iPhone 5 is publicly released, each design will be instantly adapted according to the precise iPhone 5 layout. If there is any radical changes in the shape customers will be informed immediately before their iPhone case is printed and delivered. Each customer is guaranteed to receive an iPhone 5 case which will fit their phone perfectly. This demonstrates how 3DPCase is designed to provide bespoke manufacturing and files can be easily and instantly adapted before the cases undergo the printing process.
