The Musical Theater in Sofia appeared with a new innovative 3D printed décor. Such an innovation is implemented for the first time in Bulgaria. The pride of the theater is a new production called “The Bat” which captivates with a classic décor – made by 3D Printing.
The idea of this innovation comes from the set designer Ivan Slavov. His idea is to create a décor that would be contemporary but also used for a long time. So he came to the idea of 3D printing and decided to discuss it with the experts of 3DBGPrint. They made a brief consultation if 3D printing could be applied to the scenery. The experts of 3DBGPrint are optimistic about the innovative project and decide to make this bold step.
In the end the projects starts in early August and there is plenty of work ahead of 3DBGPrint and the main set designers. They wanted everything to be ready for the “Bat” Premiere in October.
The first work is in front of the 3D artist who has to manage the scenery on time and take it to the 3D workshop for the main purpose – the making of the elements.
The overall information is that over 200 pieces are printed on time. Over 10 identical printers were being used to their full capacity in order to make it happen.
The printers are 3DGence Double P255 – a professional 3D printer with dual extruder and dual material printing technology – essential and supportive for the production of high quality and sophisticated details.
