Cut Copy's gorgeous new music video takes 3D printing to new territory

Australian electronic music band Cut Copy has put out a new video featuring some 200 3D-printed figurines. And as an added bonus, you can download the video as an open source BitTorrent bundle to make your own version.

The post-apocalyptic-themed video is for Cut Copy's track, "We Are Explorers." The characters, which are animated via stop motion, were all generated using a 3D printer with a UV reactive filament, allowing them to glow in the dark.

The video required two weeks of design, one week of printing, ten hours of shooting, and one week of post-production.

The band, along with the video's developer, Party, have made all the content — including the music, video, and 3D printed files — available for download here. So, to make your own version of the video, all you need is a 3D printer, some time, and a creative imagination.
