I was binge-watching Marvel’s latest television show, set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe called Runaways. One of the characters is a tech genius with an affinity for building super-powered gadgets called the Fistigon. Imagine my surprise when I saw those Fistigons being printed with a 3D printer (see screencap above), with a model and brand that I was not familiar with at the time: Stratasys J750
So I googled for the name and behold, the brand and model does indeed exist and was not a figment of Marvel’s imagination. It does say that the price is super hefty though. I wonder who at Marvel made a decision to buy a super-expensive 3D printer to be used on set, when they could actually go for a cheaper model instead?
