 Lights, Camera, 3D-Printed props, Action!

With last weekend focused firmly on the Oscars ceremony, it was befitting that international news channel, Sky News, should choose to shine the limelight on the way 3D printing technology continues to play a leading role in major motion pictures.

Working closely with the Sky News reporting team, Bespoke secured a site visit to Stratasys service bureau, IPF, as well as to IPF's customer - movie costumes and props company, FBFX Ltd.

This led to a prestigious slot on the morning Sunrise show, with IPF's Gary Miller explaining why the output quality and time-saving efficiencies of Stratasys 3D printing over traditional methods is inspiring film studios to adopt the technology.

Following the morning's studio piece, a dedicated episode of the Sky News Swipe report saw Stratasys 3D printers in action, while Grant Permain from FBFX Ltd described how his company is successfully using the technology in well-known blockbuster movies. These include the recent Exodus: Gods & Kings, which featured a 3D printed helmet and armour worn by Christian Bale's Moses.

So, next time you're watching the latest sci-fi release, it's highly likely that 3D printing has played a star part!
