In order to save time and money, and speed up production, the stop-motion film company Laika Entertainment, utilized 3D printers. Tradtitional claymation impedes timelines; for the movie Wallace and Gromit, roughly only 2 seconds a day could be filmed. With 3D printers, the process was streamlined; animators did not have to handcraft each face or body part, they just needed to swap out each face for the next. A good video example of how the studio integrated 3D printing can be found here.
