3D printed part

3D printed models provide intricate details and unique, one-of-a-kind parts. Highlight the artistry of the creation with a faster production than traditional sculpting and model-making.

3D printing enables the entertainment industry to create unique models for visual effects in many applications.  Parts can be printed in high resolution while delivering intricate details or can be printed fast in near-net shape to be sanded, painted, and finished for special effects. Whether creating master patterns for molding, props for filming, or visual mockups for concepting, 3d printing delivers models that highlight the true artistry of the model.

A few examples of 3D modeling applications:

  • Figures for painting
  • Master patterns for rubber molding
  • Near-net shape prints for painting and sculpting
  • Multi-color printed figures
