Based in Portland, Oregon, LAIKA is an award-winning production company behind such Hollywood films as “Coraline”, “Kubo and the Two Strings”, and “Paranorman”. Leveraging 3D printing to transform the centuries-old art of stop-motion animation, the studio has a rich history with Stratasys. Leveraging additive manufacturing, LAIKA is bringing imagination to life – creating the most realistic, true-to-life 3D printed puppets for its feature films.
Working with Stratasys J750 PolyJet technology, LAIKA develops animated characters with the richest colors, textures, and facial expressions. For “Missing Link”, the production company actually 3D printed more than 300,000 parts on the J750 – from character facial expressions down to the smallest set piece. The J750 is perfectly designed for these film-makers – with true, full-color capability, texture-mapping and color gradients. This results in parts with unmatched look, feel and operation.
