      The Iron Man suit and the stop-motion revolution

      XYZ Media

      A technology that has already impacted industry and medicine is now changing cinema.

      One of the most difficult tasks in filmmaking is the creation of objects important to the plot, whether they be weapons, figures for animation, complex mechanisms and futuristic costumes.

      All this requires the right material. Usually objects are created manually, which takes a lot of time and money and often brings inconvenience in operation.

      3D printing could be the solution. This technology has already been used in cinema and there is every indication that it will significantly affect the industry in the future.

      Author: Mark Tyutyunnik

      What is 3D printing?

      3D printing (additive manufacturing, AM) is the construction of three-dimensional objects from models created in CAD (computer-aided drawing programs) or other 3D digital models.

      It is not necessary to draw up drawings for future objects on your own, you can download already developed 3D models - for example, here. Then you need to cut the model into thin layers (using special programs for slicing), in accordance with which the material will be superimposed during printing. By uploading the file with the model to the printer (via an SD card, flash drive or Wi-Fi), even a beginner can print the object.

      Additive manufacturing has greatly influenced the development of a wide variety of industries. It is used in the creation of weapons, the construction of buildings, the development of medicines and in other areas.

      Gradually, this technology was adopted in the cinema.

      The benefits of 3D printing are many. Firstly, the production of objects is carried out quickly and efficiently. Secondly, very complex objects can be made using this technology, which eliminates additional assembly steps and provides more freedom for designers.

      Another advantage of additive manufacturing is the variety of materials. Printer manufacturers offer a set of sources, but the user always has the opportunity to mix different substances and even simulate ceramics or metal.

      How 3D printing works

      One of the most important parts of 3D printing is the scanner . It collects the physical data of an environmental object or (volume, texture and color) to create a digital model.

      There are two main types of 3D scanners: contact and non-contact. The former explore the object through physical contact. The second is to collect radiation from the target object using a laser, structured light, photogrammetry, or optical coordinate measurement.

      SLS technology is used to manufacture machine parts and objects with complex geometry. It helps to achieve high strength and precision. A roller rolls the powder, consisting of 50 micron diameter nylon spheres, onto a platform, and the printer heats it up to sintering temperature. Then, with the help of a laser, these spheres are sintered layer by layer until the necessary detail is obtained.

      BigRep ONE brand printers are mainly used in cinema. A build chamber with a volume of >1m3 simplifies the additive manufacturing of large-scale objects.

      The fast speed and convenience of this production is possible thanks to the camera, which creates large life-size parts and allows you to directly monitor the process. When NeoMetrix Technologies released a video of the development of a functioning car on the BigRep ONE printer, the reason for the technology's popularity in film production was perhaps obvious.

      The use of 3D printing in animation

      Laika Entertainment has pioneered the full scale application of technology in film. The company has resorted to additive manufacturing to provide naturalistic facial animation for stop-motion dolls. The idea was to take puppet "acting" to the next level.

      When working on The Nightmare Before Christmas, director Henry Selick used hand sculpting and the usual replacement of faces - first they shot the head with one facial expression, and in the next frame they replaced it with another. But the range of emotions with this approach turned out to be very meager. When producing Coraline in the Land of Nightmares, Selick wanted the main character to be able to show as many subtle expressions as possible. That is why the director decided to conduct an experiment using 3D printing.

      Leading additive manufacturing industry advocate Brian F. McLean Visual effects specialist for Coraline, Paranorman, Family of Monsters and Kubo: The Legend of the Samurai. He has probably the most experience with 3D printing in the film industry today.

      In Coraline, McLean used traditional stop-motion animation and combined it with new techniques. Additive manufacturing has been used to create facial expressions of characters with thousands of details. The specialist used three Objet printers, with the help of which the animators developed about 20 thousand facial areas that could convey more than 200,000 facial expressions.

      The image above clearly shows the line of alignment of the upper and lower parts of the face, which was removed in post-production. Using traditional methods, this amount of work would have taken about 30 years, but thanks to 3D printing, it turned out much faster.

      It is even more difficult to imagine how many years Paranorman would have taken to produce. The animators used about 40 thousand different facial elements to expand the emotional range. Each of the 40,000 elements was put into a special face library. Thanks to their combination, Norman alone had about 1.5 million facial expressions. Each short half-minute episode required about 250 different expressions for one character.

      About 56,000 faces were printed for "The Monster Family", which were divided into two main areas: eyebrows and mouth.

      Each of the options had special names, such as "raised eyebrows" or "pursed lips." Combining them, McLean got the unique expression he needed.

      According to McLean, the aim of the rapid prototyping department was "to push stop motion into uncharted territory. " This idea reached its peak in The Monster Family, where they tried to touch every muscle of the face, and the heads were printed specifically for one frame and were no longer used in the production of the cartoon.

      McLean credits lead texture artist Tori Bryant for finding a way to recreate the nuances of coloring layouts by hand using additive manufacturing. She figured out how to compensate for the lack of color calibration on the printer and found that applying traditional drawing and coloring techniques to digital models resulted in a more believable result.

      McLean has also used 3D printing on Laika's latest two projects: Kubo: The Legend of the Samurai and Lost Link. The scale increased again - only the main character could have 48 million facial expressions. In addition, when creating both cartoons, PolyJet 9 technology was used.0204 , with the help of which painted the printed objects in the required colors.

      3D printing in big-budget movies

      Disney pioneered the use of 3D printing in feature films - Jason Lopez (Legacy Effects specialist who worked with Marvel Studios from Iron Man 2 to Guardians of the Galaxy 2 ”) using this technology greatly accelerated the creation of the Iron Man suit. First, experts scanned the body of Robert Downey Jr. - this was necessary to make wearing the suit more comfortable - and then printed armor fragments on Objet Geometries from various materials. Rubber was used for action scenes and fast movements, and metal for close-ups.

      For Thor: Ragnarok, Hela's helmet was designed by José Fernandez, costume designer at Ironhead Studios, using this technology. It used SLS (laser sintered nylon powder) with the addition of reinforced carbon fiber so that the headgear was not heavy.

      3D printed synthetic materials such as nylon have also been used in the development of other Disney projects: Queen Ramonda's headdress from Black Panther; Kylo Ren costume, shining chrome stormtrooper armor, some parts of Rey's staff, C3PO droid as a costume for actor Anthony Daniels from The Force Awakens, Interpol car from The Muppets 2. Disney is again the first to apply new technologies, as it was with virtual production or the first “animation” of an actor using a mockup.

      Additive manufacturing is also used by Sony Pictures Entertainment, Universal Pictures and Warner Bros.

      Rapid prototyping for 007: Skyfall produced an Aston Martin DB5 and a one-third life-size helicopter specifically for the explosion scene, which proved to be significantly cheaper than any other method.

      Stratasys printers were used to design armor for the 2014 RoboCop remake.

      A The red stripe on the visor was printed using a transparent photopolymer material.

      The Apollo 11 spacecraft for Man on the Moon was also recreated using large scale printers - it was created using BigRep ONE V3.

      Weta Workshop, a special effects and props company, used this technology to design helmets, sword hilts, spears and axes for the Hobbit trilogy. Animatronics engineer Rob Sheeney has stated that using 3D printing is beneficial as it is more economical and less time consuming. Then, in 2012, Weta Workshop also tested large-scale printers.

      How 3D printing will change cinema

      Cinematographer Victor Marin (Young Americans) believes that this technology will play an increasingly important role in the future. He recommends combining methods, instead of replacing traditional ones with innovative ones.

      Julia Koerner (helped with 3D printing for the Black Panther designers) also calls for a combination of these methods. She sees the benefits of additive manufacturing in creating really complex and detailed structures that can't be created with traditional methods. In his work, Koerner tries to combine traditional methods with progressive ones.

      Gilles-Alexandre Deschaux, creator of stop-motion short Chase me :

      “3D printing is already widely used in the film industry, from stop-motion films to big American blockbusters and commercials. 3D printing is often used to create decorative items and props, but not only there. At the development stages, it is used to promote new individual projects and conceptual solutions.

      According to Pinewood Studios 3D supervisor Jet Cooper, the possibilities of this technology are already “incredible”, because if you want, you can even scan someone's face with all the wrinkles and pores.

      Jet Cooper, Pinewood Studios 3D Supervisor:

      “Voxeljet has the biggest printers. Their maximum format: 4000 mm x 2000 mm x 1000 mm. This is the largest printer in the world as far as I know. We have a 1060mm x 500mm x 600mm resolution printer at Pinewood. Anything over this size, we print in parts and then put them together.

      3D printing is used to create props, and the metal coating of the material makes it strong and durable. But the Germans are working on a new material - epoxy resins, which are as strong as stone. They are extremely hard. "

      3D printing is developing rapidly and is becoming cheaper every time, especially when compared to traditional methods or the use of computer graphics. Perhaps the day is not far off when handmade props and scenery will almost cease to be used in films - they will be replaced by cheaper and faster “printed” counterparts.
