TV & Film

In this world of green screen and digital manipulation you could be forgiven for thinking that manufacturing physical props is no longer such a necessity for film and TV studios.

However, this is where 3D printing comes into its own. New ideas can be printed and communicated in less time than it takes to film a scene and different designs can be tested against each other quickly and cheaply. Whether it be costumes, lightsabers or man-eating monsters, 3D printers are changing filmmaking.
