PopPhoto on How to Print a 3-D "Coraline" Puppet

by on February 17, 2009

PopPhoto.com has taken a look at the 3-D printing technology from a company called Objet that enabled Laika Animation Studios to print puppets for Coraline. Objet’s line of printers spray layers a UV curable liquid that hardens into a solid, which allowed Laika to produce more than 200,000 unique facial expressions for its title character (compared to about 800 for Jack Skellington in The Nightmare Before Christmas). The printers also allowed Laika to print rather than scuplt other objects as well, such as drops of water.
