We Bring Concept Art To Life With 3D Printing
3D printing technology has revolutionized the way filmmakers create props and costumes, offering a range of benefits that traditional methods simply cannot match. Forge Labs specializes in bringing to life the most complex, detailed concept art using the advanced 3D printing technologies. Offering the ultra fast manufacturing, we dramatically reduce both the time and cost spent creating props. Our 3D printing services together with our talent team of 3D modelers and sculptors allows for the creation of precise and highly detailed objects, essential in prop and costume design. With 3D printing, filmmakers can create props and costumes that are exact replicas of their original designs, which is especially important for period pieces, where accuracy is key.
Solutions for Designers
Highly Customized Props
Lightweight & Durable 3D Print Materials
3D printing allows for the use of lightweight, durable materials, making props easier for actors to handle during filming and resist breakage.
No Cost for Complexity
Designing and producing complex set pieces can be time-consuming and expensive, with alterations further delaying production and increasing costs. However, advancements in 3D printing offer cost-effective and efficient alternatives. This technology allows for faster prototyping and tool creation, eliminating the need for traditional methods, and facilitating more complex designs without escalating costs.
How 3D Printing Shaped the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Marvel Studios has used 3D printing to create a number of the iconic props and intricate costumes that we know and love. As far back as 2008, 3D printing has been an integral part of their production pipeline allowing their prop masters to rapidly create prototypes that test the fit and designs with actors and even manufacture the final prop itself for the big screen. Today, 3D printing is used by almost every single production company but Marvel was one of the first production companies to pioneer the technology for the big screen and manufacture designs that would be impossible with any other technology.
