For the first time in history, the stories of the human beings building an industry have been filmed. The result: PRINT THE LEGEND, which follows the people racing to bring 3D printing to your desktop and into your life. For the winners, there are fortunes – and history – to be made.
Print the Legend is a 2014 documentary filmed on Canon EOS C300 and Canon EOS C100 focuses on the 3D printing revolution, the relationship between the 3D printing industry and the gun rights advocacy movement, but it’s also a great corporate drama. Cody Wilson, who is known for gun rights advocacy and specifically for promoting the 3D printing of guns, is interviewed extensively in the documentary.

On one side of the arena, Brooklyn-based MakerBot is under the leadership of co-founder Bre Pettis, a very Steve Jobs-like character who pushes for cost-efficient products and loses friends in the process. On the other side is Formlabs, a much more humble company struggling to fund projects, and established companies Stratasys, PrintForm, and 3D Systems.
