Computational Thermoforming, the Other 3D Printing?

exture image to be printed on the plastic, thereby ensuring that once the sheet is deformed, each pixel of the texture lands in its correct location on the 3D shape. The material model and the parameters for the simulation are automatically extracted by scanning and analyzing a single calibration object made with our forming pipeline. On the hardware side, we propose an effective method to produce a gypsum mold using a 3D printer with polylactic acid (PLA) filament, and a simple way to print texture on a plastic sheet using a standard color laser printer and transfer paper.

Maker Studios and Full Sail launch new digital studio - Orlando Business Journal

Fri, 03/20/2015 - 16:54 -- rprice

up to 24 full-time jobs — all related to production — would be created within a year for REBL HQ, but specifics on the average salary for those jobs was not available. During the March 20 media event and tour of the estimated 4,000-square-foot studio, officials announced that two productions were already being worked on due to the partnership. One project is called Love Gianna, which is an original series featuring actress Gianna Simone. The program launched March 20 via YouTube channel. The second project, which launches March 28, is called Full Sail Game Maker Challenge.

How Disney built and programmed an animatronic president | Ars Technica

Tue, 06/24/2014 - 13:57 -- rprice

According to an article from the defunct Persistence of Vision, Audio-Animatronics figures' sounds were recorded onto tape, like a bird's chirping. When the tape was played back, the sound would cause a metal reed in the system to vibrate. The reed's vibration would close a circuit, allowing electricity to cross it and power a pneumatic valve in the figure to move (in the case of a bird, opening its mouth). When the sound stopped, the circuit would open again, and the bird's mouth would return to its neutral, closed position.

Op-ed: Disney takes a chainsaw to the Star Wars expanded universe | Ars Technica

Sun, 01/19/2014 - 15:01 -- rprice

Word began trickling out over Twitter last week that Disney will be drastically redefining the state of the Star Wars lore, eliminating the bifurcated mainline/EU arrangement and in its place constructing a single official canon. All things that are part of the canon are "real," as far as Star Wars is concerned; all things not in the canon are "not real." This eliminates the quasi-real EU tier—going forward, things will either exist officially, or not at all.
