In films, special effects are used to simulate objects, places, characters and events that cannot be filmed from real elements. Even the most austere films that do not need monsters or landscapes of other planets and only require some unusual objects must use some technique to include them in the filming.

One option is to add them with computer programs that allow you to insert clip art of objects, landscapes, etc. in the real image so that they look true. Another way to achieve this is to create those objects manually. It can be in real size or in scale, in the case of buildings or large-scale scenarios.

But today the big movie companies use 3D printing to create things, characters, and places. There is no limit to what can be manufactured: from the eye of a character to the most incredible landscape, passing through elements as common and seen in movies as helmets, weapons, and robots.

3D printing allows manufacturing a single object with all the details that are required and with a very low cost. No need to make models or prototypes, which is only justified if the production is going to be of certain quantities.

Make your movie heroes come true

Have you ever wanted your favorite TV character to be real? Would you like to have a figure in your hero’s image on your desk? It’s very easy with 3D printing! Check that you have the rights to do so, upload your design to our website, determine the size and get an instant quote on the price of 3D printing.

As a studio, create a service of personalized figures for your fans and take advantage of 3D printing that allows each design to be slightly different without the need for a completely new process. Make personalized marketing for each client to reinforce their enthusiasm and passion.

The multicolor material presents all the colors and a good precision so that your design has a detailed texture. The 3D production of London allows designs up to 8 inches in 3 directions and three different finishes from the raw to the bright as described in the materials page.

Create perfect objects to use in a TV show

Many accessories are needed to record a TV show or movie. Most of them are unique and need to be printed only once, so communication professionals often prefer 3D printing to manufacture because it is easier, cheaper and faster.

The printed object can be as simple as decorative brand logos for a television program to promote a company or a product. From a simple logo, you can easily extrude a 3D object to create perfect plates or magnets.

Invent accessories to facilitate filming

Many videos and audio equipment are needed in a shoot, which involves many peripherals and cables. In addition, the technology is changing very quickly and a new camera can quickly become obsolete and need adapters.

For this reason, you will love the 3D printing solution that allows you to create boxes adapted to your camera to integrate all peripherals. They reduce the risk of breaking it during transport or during handling.

If other people are interested in this product, you can start selling it thanks to 3D printing of London batch control tool that makes serial printing easier and more economical. You can also set a design fee to earn money with each impression of your object.
