I can't think of a more fitting way to outfit this old school dystopian hero than to 3D print his armor!

There's never been any doubt that progressive technology and visual effects have always been one in the same, but this still blows me away. 

Remember the days when costume art was limited to custom made fabrics and rubber masks? Well now it's not uncommon to have 3D artists modeling armor with powerful programs like Zbrush.

...oh ya, and printing them out. 

This 2014 rendition of Robocop is hitting the theaters today; so while you're sitting on the edge of your seats enjoying the action, take the time to check out Robocop's gear and appreciate this awesome use of 3D printing. 

If you're interested in tinkering around with 3D printing using the same world-class software from this production, check out our modeling tutorial page for some tips!
