Netflix has announced that it will exclusively premier 3D printing documentary ‘Print The Legend’ on September 26th.
With unprecedented access to the visionaries building an industry, Print The Legend follows the people and companies racing to bring 3D printing to your desktop and into your life. For the winners, there are fortunes – and history – to be made. The film roots its core story in the rise and challenges of start-ups MakerBot and Formlabs as they vie to release consumer models and control the narrative of their market to compete with established industrial players Stratasys and 3D Systems.
It also asks tough questions about what it takes to live the American Dream and about the industry’s creative drive to enable consumers to produce anything from trinkets to handguns, including being there with provocateur Cody Wilson as he uploads his printable-gun files to the internet, setting off a worldwide media firestorm.
