3D Printing, the Ace of Set Designing
The 3D printing technology is making work effortless for set designers and also enhancing the authenticity of set designs.
FREMONT, CA: Presently, we have all been stunned by the phenomenal environmental realism of various fantasy motion pictures, yet we do not intend to fabricate the potential mastery of internal creative processes. A lot of detailed prosthetics and innovative technologies are involved in building authentic surroundings necessary to draw parallelism with the real world and to make the experience of viewers worthwhile.
Traditionally, the concept designers and art directors have to sketch out models and based on the diagrams; the creative design crew has to construct concept props, which further elevated the cost and time of pre-production. However, with the ongoing digital renaissance, innovative tools have already begun invading the film and television industry. One of the sophisticated tools to come out of technological development is 3D printing. With the integration of 3D printing technology, the designers can attain unrealistic goals.
Using 3D Printing Technology in Set Decorations
As far-fetched of an idea as it may sound, the set decorators are now scanning digital sketches or even real-life objects to print 3D replicas of them. Lightweight models having precise exterior nuances elevate the functional efficiency of set workers, therefore, lifting a heavy burden from the directors. From building weapons to ecological surroundings, the 3D printing technology can function efficiently despite the scale of the product.
Previously, the method of sculpting with foam and clay was very time consuming, which cost the studios a significant bulk of their profit. Furthermore, the studio houses had to rely on external parties to supply woods, plastics, and metals, which further elevated the designing expenses. However, with the 3D printing technology, the monetary dangers of trials and errors are eliminated.
3D Printing Enhances the Craft
During inception, there was an initial skepticism of 3D printing technology replacing the traditional techniques. But, designing experts and industry professionals believe that innovations enhance the artistry rather than substituting the artists. Even though 3D printing has made remarkable progress in the developmental ecosystem, the cohesive attitude of the traditional workers is limiting it to reach its full potential.
