See the Trailer for Netflix's Doc 'Print the Legend' About 3D Printing
"Every once in a while, a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything." From MakerBot to Shapeways, we're in the midst of a 3D printing boom and it's exciting to watch whether you're a part of the industry or not. Netflix is so excited about it that they've made an entire documentary about it, titled Print the Legend, from co-directors Luiz Lopez & J. Clay Tweel. Premiering in the video service later this month, the first trailer for the documentary has arrived and we're happy to share it even though we're bending our own rules for something that's only available via the internet (we always prefer theatrical!). But the trailer looks great, and this looks like a really fascinating and fun doc about 3D printing, so why not. Give it a shot.
From the description on YouTube: "'The Next Industrial Revolution' is coming to Netflix… Print the Legend, the newest Netflix Original Documentary, is a story of innovation and technology, of controversy and change. For the first time in history, the building of an industry and its inevitable social upheaval has been filmed. The result is Print the Legend, a documentary which chronicles the race to bring 3D printing to the forefront of society. It's a compelling look at an industry in the midst of its 'Macintosh Moment,' chronicling the infinite & unlimited potential of 3D printing, as well as the dark possibilities that could lie underneath." Sound cool? The doc is co-directed by Luiz Lopez and J. Clay Tweel, featuring Seth Gordon (The King of Kong, Horrible Bosses, The Identity Thief) as producer. Available on Netflix starting on September 26th.
3D printing is amazing and a little terrifying at the same time. I can't wait to see hoe far it progresses in the next 10 years.

the 3d printing on Paranorman was super good and probably saved the puppet makers a lot of time. The gun thing isn't so much a problem is it? Surely it's easy enough to get a real gun in the US? I watched a short film about the designer of the robo-hand, had me weeping like a child. Hopefully it can be used much more for things like that, positive and for some people, impossibly expensive products that really make a difference to someones life.

We're going to see a lot of 3D-printed dicks, man. A LOT.
