Jason Lopes, Lead Systems Engineer at Legacy Effects, will discuss the intersection of
3D printing and Hollywood on Aug. 8 at 10 a.m., in Room 301B. He will demonstrate how 3D
technology is used in the design and prototyping of characters for Hollywood films. Some
of the 3D-printed models of Legacy characters on display during the presentation, as well
as in Objet’s Booth (#235) throughout SIGGRAPH, include the Hulk from “Marvel: The
Avengers” and Wahoon and John Carter from “John Carter.”

The models demonstrate the breadth and versatility of Objet’s industry-leading 107
digital materials, which are capable of simulating properties ranging from varying grades
of rubber to ABS-grade engineering plastics, as well as simulating clear transparency. In
Booth #235, Objet will be showcasing these materials on three of its printers: the Objet24
desktop, the Objet Eden260V professional and the Objet Connex350 multi-material 3D

“Objet’s technology has allowed us to bring creativity and imagination to life in ways
we never thought possible,” Lopes said. “Anything we can think up, Objet 3D printers can
prototype in a matter of hours.”
