3D printing makes movie-making easier. Costume, creature, and make-up designers are using 3D printing to create props and materials faster and easier to use.
3D printing is being used in a host of new and different ways. The biggest change on the horizon will be the sheer number of different materials with which we can 3D print. The range of usable materials has increased every year. This lets us print greater and greater permutations of designs. It lets creators innovate in ways we’ve never seen before. As the capabilities of 3D printing expand, the only limitation seems to be an inventor’s creativity.
