Now that 3D printing is adapted more widely, the movie industry is also beginning to see the value 3D printing offers.
Without knowing you might even have been staring at 3D printing in the movies already. Iron Man 2 for instance uses 3D printing at a very high level. Rather than build models by hand, the filmmakers turned to 3D printing and drastically shorted the production time and costs.
Robert Downey Jr.’s suit for instance, was first digitally modeled, then produced in pieces on an Objet 3D printer and finally painted into the right colors. Jason Lopes, a system engineer at Legacy Effects is a true believer of the adaptation of 3D printing in the movies, especially when it comes to effects-heavy films.
Check out the next video where he explains the role that 3D printing plays in providing an easy and efficient way to advance through the process of getting approvals in all design processes from production clients.
It is evident now that 3D printing will claim an important role in the neat world special effects and bring even more realistic scenes into your living room.
