Today, innovative software allows artists to 3D print sculptures and models. In filmmaking, 3D printing has just recently emerged as a form of storytelling. Using 3D printers, animators are able to construct dynamic facial expressions, ushering in a new mode of stop-motion filmmaking. As of this year, only a handful of major motion pictures have utilized this technical method. The process combines state-of-the-art printing practices with traditional sculpture technique, synthesizing a unique and immersive creative expression.
