Came upon this during my web trawls, as you do, and even though it’s a year old, it’s great to watch. It’s definitely one of the more entertaining and technically valuable (by which I mean creating a significant change in process and output) manifestations of 3D printing I’ve seen recently. From here:
With the ZPrinter, LAIKA was able to print over 8,000 unique expressions, up from the mere hundreds that were formerly possible. The precision of the ZPrinter not only gave characters’ actions and reactions a greater and more believable subtlety, but did so with remarkable detail (think thousands of freckles) that would have been grueling and unimaginable to hand-paint.
