How 3D Printing is Revolutionising Stop-Motion Animation

In an age of countless computer-generated box office hits coming out of Pixar, Disney and Dreamworks, many had feared that traditional styles of animation like stop motion would become obsolete.

Films like the recently released “Kubo and the Two Strings” show how 3D printing is enabling animators to push the boundaries of stop motion animation.
