Integrating Functional Design into 3D Printing for Prototypes

Functional design is a simple concept that has large implications when combined with 3D printing. The goal is to simply design modularly so that each individual component serves a specific, individual function. It is very similar to many agile practices that are used in programming and management to ensure that all development goals are in small manageable pieces with potential to test and receive feedback quickly.

How Iron Man and Laika Studios are Shaking Up the Movie Industry with 3D Printing

Each year 3D Printing plays a more central role in the entertainment industry, especially for  filmmakers and effect studios. 3D printing allows these creative minds to make the “unprecedented” more quickly and more realistically than any other technology. They are the stereotypical “small batch production” centers as they are producing the visuals for a single film. So it is no wonder that 3D printing is beginning to take center stage in flim production.
