Dot, The Worlds Smallest Animated Character: 3D Printed, Of Course.

Check out this video behind the scenes at Aardman and what went in to making the world’s smallest character animated film using 50 3D printed models, hand painted with microscope and tweezers.  The models were printed at only 9 mm in height which according to the Guinness Book of World Records, Dot is the smallest model of her type, and was shot using a Nokia N8 to celebrate the Cellscope.

Note: This does not mean it is ok to do all your images & videos on Shapeways with your cell phone!! :)

Warning! May come across as a Nokia advertisement but it is still worth watching.

Thanks to Time Compression blog.
