Every day, three-dimensional printing enters daily living. Mentions of these technologies in media and popular TV programs are not limited to stories about plastic shoes or jewelry. In this article we will tell you how 3D printing is used in modern film industry.

• Jurassic Park 3
12 years ago famous Hollywood movie showed us that with device called «Rapid Prototyper» one can replicate the larynx of a Velociraptor that could simulate voice of monsters and rescue main characters of the movie.
