3D Printing at Tuacahn

Tuacahn Amphitheater in Southern Utah. Nestled into beautiful red foothil
ls hills.
Home of great theater, a Saturday farmer's market, and 3D printing. 3D printing? Yup.
Just inside their gift shop is a display case with 3D printed props from their previous shows.
From Peter Pan there's some kisses (acorns), Wendy's thimble, and a feather arm bracelet leverl created by printing a feather flat then wrapping it around a pole with some heat.
There are ornate crosses and woven pendants from the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
And lastly there's Smee's dagger and some phone cases and card holders. All of which are available for purchase. The props were actually used in the show.

I got the opportunity to talk to the guys using 3D printing at Tuacahn and it's exciting to see. In fact if there were a market for this sort of thing I think it'd be interesting to print new props and trinkets every night, use them in a show, and sell them afterwards. This is exactly the sort of thing 3D printing is good for and I thank Joseph Smith and Scott Anderson for taking the time to chat with me. I look forward to seeing what they do in the future.
