How Industrial Light & Magic Uses 3D Printing Alongside Digital Production

Industrial Light & Magic is legendary in the film industry. Founded by George Lucas in the seventies to produce practical effects for his upcoming Star Wars movies, ILM has had a hand in some of the most iconic movies of all time.
