2:10 - 2:30 pm - Driving A-List Innovation with Additive Manufacturing
Jason Lopes, Global Market Development Engineer, Carbon
Jason Lopes will share stories from additive’s early days in Hollywood and how bringing ideas like the Iron Man suit to life in a functional, impressive and comfortable way caught the attention of other influential areas like the defense industry. As he reached the pinnacle of additive manufacturing in the entertainment industry, Jason looked for ways he could solve product-based problems in other fast-paced industries. By leaning into AM materials and design principles, he figured out how to help product designers and engineers at A-list brands like Kawasaki Motocross, Fox, Jay-Z’s latest venture, Monogram, and more think about products and their challenges differently, ultimately driving innovation to make products that have never been made before.
Jason Lopes started as Carbon’s first beta tester of its technology in 2014 as the former lead systems engineer with Legacy Effect. Jason helped create some of the biggest Hollywood blockbusters of all time utilizing Additive Manufacturing. Jason’s credits include Avatar, Terminator Genisys & Salvation, 2012, Thor, Iron Man 1,2, & 3, Cowboys & Aliens, Real Steel, Life of Pi, Captain America 2, Robocop and Pacific Rim; amongst other successful TV and film productions. After leaving Legacy Effects Jason now helps companies leverage Additive Manufacturing and educates all spaces of 3D Printing. Jason is a strong advocate of 3D printing, which has proven to be an invaluable tool in his production workflow, along with 3D scanning, 3D design and 3D modeling. He has been operating numerous 3D printing technologies for a number of years to assist in the production of stunning visual effects and products and was awarded 3D Printing Industry’s Maker of The Year 2017 the DINO (Distinguished Innovative Operators Award) in 2012 by the Additive Manufacturing Users Group. Since 2017, Jason has held numerous roles in the company including Production Studio Lead and is currently the Global Market Development Engineer.
