Disney has often been praised for their innovations in technology in the pursuit of entertainment – most famously with their advances in animatronics – so it’s no surprise to find Disney also on the forefront of 3D printing technology. In this video from Disney’s research hub in Pennsylvania, they demonstrate just a few potential uses of 3D printing technology for printed optics.Imagine printing out an entire component instead of producing and then assembling individual parts. Now imagine using clear material […]
