MakerBot announces new MakerBot-Ready App with Fraemes, an interchangeable and ready-to-print case for iPhones. 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.

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(R) 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 through fraemes.com/makerbot, with digital files costing up to $1 and bumpers $12 each.
