3D Printing The Future Of Animation

It’s no secret I’m slightly obsessed with 3D printing. It’s a really fascinating process, and it’s only poised to get better. Cheaper, faster printers, larger print beds, more ‘ink’ options, etc. While the technology is improving, people will also find new ways to use the technology. Such is the case of DBLG, a design/3D animation studio.

DBLG wanted to explore 3D printing, so they designed a model of a bear walking up stairs. They then printed every frame of the animation with a 3D printer, and then shot using standard stop-frame animation. Quite a cool result:

Pretty sweet, huh?
