Missing Link Is Released, And 3D Printing Plays A Key Role Again

Apr 26, 2019

On April 14th, the latest stop-motion animated film "Lost Links" of the Lycra Studios in the United States ushered in the premiere in North America. Directed by Chris Butler, the film tells the story of the monster investigator, Sir Lionel Frost, who went to the Pacific to find the legendary creature Mr. Link in recognition of the elite of the adventure. The filmmaker also specially invited a number of Hollywood movie stars, including Hugh Jackman, to voice the characters in the play.


As the fifth stop motion animation film launched by Lycra Studio, 3D printing technology also played a vital role in the Lost Link. Team members made more than 106,000 snap-on faces for the characters in the film. These faces are printed in 3D using a 3D printer and color resin material after being designed by Maya software. They also placed a specially treated magnet on the back of each 3D print face. In this way, it is possible to highlight the change in the character's expression in the play by freely changing the different faces.
