3D printing is becoming ubiquitous in Hollywood. The flexibility to manufacture one–off parts quickly and affordably makes the technology an invaluable tool – while simultaneously removing barriers of creativity between digital design and physical objects. Rob Wiggins is one such Hollywood prop maker who has worked on the Transformers, Star Wars, and Marvel film franchises as a contractor for Hasbro, as well as designing and producing props and characters for major TV shows and Movies.
Join us as we talk with Rob about how 3D printing is used throughout Hollywood, his process for designing and producing full scale characters and props, and his recent discovery of 3rd-generation resin-based 3D printers – enabling him to print projects in a few hours instead of days or weeks.
What you will learn:
– How is 3D printing used in Hollywood
– How Rob decreased prop print time from days to hours
– How ultrafast industrial LSPc technology was brought to desktop 3D printers
