2014 was a year in which we saw a lot of movie props and cosplay costumes fabricated on 3D printers. If this is a signal of anything to come, 2015 should be quite a year for 3D printing when it comes to creating elaborate props. With the continual evolution of the technology, which is bringing to market more affordable, higher quality 3D printers, it should be very interesting to see how far this all goes.
For one prop maker, named Olivia Lam, 3D printing has become quite the tool in allowing her to fabricate the creations that pop into her head. Originally from Chicago, Lam discovered 3D printing as a means for creating props because she found it almost impossible to use more conventional methods from her small condo. Her one-bedroom condo that she was living in, in Miami, simply was not conducive for running jigsaws and power sanders on a daily basis.
