3D Printing in the Movies

Four Seasons
San Jacinto
98 San Jacinto Blvd


For decades people all across the world have been enamored with movie magic time and time again. We've witnessed battles that thrill our minds, love stories that warm our hearts, and journeys that challenge the very fiber of our being.

3D printing is now changing the film industry in a manner that hasn't been done since the introduction of computer-generated imagery. Studios and special effects experts are now able to utilize 3D printing to produce everything from concept models to scaled and full-size props, set-pieces, and costumes. These computer-generated designs are literally brought to life, bringing fantasy just that much closer to reality.

This presentation aims to illuminate the audience by helping them understand what 3D printing is, how it works, and what it can do as it relates to the film industry.
