For each viewer, the reasons for watching and loving a movie are different. Among them, the craftsmanship of movie props as a basic element of a film, its role in shaping the overall effect of the film is particularly worthy of attention. As a cutting-edge technology, 3D printing undoubtedly provides strong technical support for movie props manufacturing and brings more possibilities.

With the arrival of the "Avengers 4: The Final Battle", almost all the attention of the film industry focused on this fantasy-filled movie. In addition to curious about the trend of the movie story, many filmmakers are also full of praise for the beautifully crafted props in the film. This situation has led to the thinking of some film and television producers: in the moment when the filmmakers’ demand for film and television changes, How to optimize the design of film and television props and further improve the quality of film and television props?

The emergence of 3D printing technology provides a new option for answering the above questions. In fact, with the continuous advancement of technology, the use of 3D printing technology to produce film and television props is moving from the conceptual fantasy stage to the actual landing. For example, in the movie "The Zodiac", the vivid animal head is done using 3D printing technology. In addition, "Star Trek", "Galaxy Guard 2", "Iron Man 2" also appeared in many unique and cool 3D printing props.

In recent years, in addition to props, clothing and scenery in some film and television works have gradually penetrated the elements of 3D printing. Analysts of film and television works pointed out that in addition to the movie props that are familiar to the audience, 3D printing technology has a very broad application space in the production of static models, physical effects simulation, mechanical model production, post-movie product development and many other film and television products. For the time being, the application of 3D printing technology in the field of film and television mainly focuses on clothing and props production.


What does the 3D printing service bring to film and television props production?
Since the birth of the first film "Dingjun Mountain" in 1905, China's film industry has gone through hundreds of years of development. After entering a new era, China's film and television industry has also entered a period of rapid development, and cutting-edge technologies such as 3D printing and big data have also been accelerated in the production process of film and television props.

Overall, in the past film and television props mode, the production process of film and television props is complicated and the spending period is long. If the item is damaged during the shooting, the cost of item repair is also very high. In contrast, the 3D printing process is more automated, shortening the production cycle of film and television props, and improving the accuracy of film and television props. If the actor feels that the size is not suitable, just adjust the print parameters to re-create one, which undoubtedly reflects the advantages of 3D printing in terms of personalization.

While recognizing the advantages of 3D printing of film and television props, film and television industry practitioners should also face up to the shortcomings of 3D printing props. Compared with traditional manufacturing processes, the cost of 3D printing to produce movie and television props is higher. At least in terms of current market conditions, the cost of 3D printing is still much higher than that of batch processing. For some small and medium-sized film makers, it may be difficult to afford high-volume movie props production costs.

In the future, 3D printing service technology will be used to make props or become normal.
The emergence of film and television entertainment works has undoubtedly enriched people's audio-visual entertainment life. With many cutting-edge technologies to enhance the image, impact and enjoyability of film and television works, it has become a major trend in the development of the film and television industry. In order to promote the sustainable development of the film and television industry, in addition to creating a good industrial development atmosphere, we should also pay attention to the training of professional 3D printing talents.
