Objet to Showcase 3D Printing's Impact on Hollywood Blockbusters

Objet Ltd., will be showcasing its advanced 3D printing solutions by highlighting the impact on Hollywood films at SIGGRAPH 2012 from Aug. 7-9 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Jason Lopes, Lead Systems Engineer at Legacy Effects, will discuss the intersection of 3D printing and Hollywood on Aug. 8 at 10 a.m., in Room 301B. He will demonstrate how 3D technology is used in the design and prototyping of characters for Hollywood films. Some of the 3D-printed models of Legacy characters on display during the presentation, as well as in Objet's Booth (#235) throughout SIGGRAPH, include the Hulk from "Marvel: The Avengers" and Wahoon and John Carter from "John Carter."

The models demonstrate the breadth and versatility of Objet's industry-leading 107 digital materials, which are capable of simulating properties ranging from varying grades of rubber to ABS-grade engineering plastics, as well as simulating clear transparency. In Booth #235, Objet will be showcasing these materials on three of its printers: the Objet24 desktop, the Objet Eden260V professional and the Objet Connex350 multi-material 3D Printers.

"Objet's technology has allowed us to bring creativity and imagination to life in ways we never thought possible," Lopes said. "Anything we can think up, Objet 3D printers can prototype in a matter of hours."
