Making the impossible possible with 3D printing

An envisioned world turned to life. It is now possible for graphic effects studios, filmmakers and game designers to fabricate true-to-life models like no other. You could have probably seen 3D printed characters onscreen without actually realizing it! In this segment, we are all about delivering the most vivid prototype which reflects the designer’s original intent.

With Stratasys 3D printing technology, parts are printed with very high accuracy and extremely fine details that it can be challenging to differentiate between the prototype and actual product. An added quality to using our technology is the acrylic-based photopolymer material which permits you to paint on it without any difficulty.
