Ever wonder how to make a feature film out 77 gallons of super glue, 8,000 pounds of powder and 5,000 Xacto blades?

Brian Mclean, the Director of Rapid Prototyping for LAIKA, creators of ParaNorman, will be joined by Academy Award winning Visual Effects Supervisor Kevin Mack, Digital Artist Derek Pendleton, Jean-Michel Voyer of Creaform and Robert Geshlider of Peak Solutions, in a state of the art look at 3D printing and 3D scanning for the entertainment industry.

Join us for a panel discussion with product demonstration of ZPrinter technology, the 3D printers used by LAIKA that print in 390,000 CYMK colors. We will be discussing Creaform’s handheld 3D scanners including the just announced GO SCAN 3D, a USB powered handheld scanner that is incredibly fast.  See how you can print your Zbrush  models in 390,000 colors!
