It seems the whole idea of 3D printing is really taking off all over the place, even in unexpected locales. In fact, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will soon be offering visitors to the park in Florida the chance to be immortalized as a Stormtrooper or in the famous frozen in carbonite pose Han Solo was so unfortunate to don. It’s a true must for any Star Wars fan!
All of this is made possible thanks to a 3D printing service, which was available during Star Wars Weekends in the park. It ran between the last half of May and June 9th. The carbonite offering was available last year but the Stormtrooper figurine offering is new for this year.
The technology is actually quite sophisticated. In fact, it’s using a much higher resolution than previously available on the consumer market and offers up a rather detailed and clear scan of the person’s head before it’s printed out in the Star Wars figurine.
