Using Powder Bed Fusion 3D Printing For Fossil Reconstruction
Fossil Reconstruction in Powder Bed Fusion. Last year, the Site C Culture and Heritage Resources Committee (comprised of 13 Indigenous nations and BC Hydro) and W3 Design Group came to Forge Labs with a unique fabrication project – a 3D printed scale-model reconstruction of a 12,500 year old fossilized skeleton of bison occidentalis.
3D Printed Movie Props
In 2018 Forge Labs collaborated with Theta Effects on a complex prop for Come to Daddy, a black comedy feature starring Elijah Wood. In the film, Elijah Wood’s character has a cast-iron receipt spike stabbed through his cheek – an effect that had to be done with real props, rather than CGI.
