We were blown away when we first saw the incredibly life-like insects by Austrian artist and model-maker Klaus Leitl posted on our forums. His insect models — printed on the Form 1+ SLA 3D Printer — are scaled some 30 times, with some measuring up to 53 inches (135cm) long, and comprised of up to 22 printed parts.

Filmmakers Clay Tweel, Luis Lopez and producer Steven Klein followed us on our journey two years ago. In Print The Legend, they tell our story, and that of the 3D printing industry. Print the Legend premieres on Netflix today. Check it out!

We invited designer and digital sculptor Jeremy Ortiz(@zbrushninja) to share his top tips on modeling for the Form 1+ 3D printer.
“As a digital designer, I knew if I wanted to be able to take my ZBrush sculptures into the real world, I needed a printer that could capture the fine details of my sculpts. The Form 1+ is the only desktop 3D printer that offers a level of detail that could effectively and accurately reproduce my sculptures with a superior level of detail and quality that was on par with industrial printers.”
