Speak Bios

S. Scott Crump is the inventor of fused deposition modeling (FDM) and co-founder of Stratasys, Ltd. Crump invented and patented FDM technology in 1989 with his wife and Stratasys co-founder Lisa Crump. He is currently the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Stratasys, which produces additive manufacturing machines for direct digital manufacturing (a.k.a. rapid manufacturing); these machines are popularly called “3D printers.” He took the manufacturing company public in 1994 (Nasdaq:SSYS). He also runs Fortus, RedEye on Demand, and Dimension Printing – business units of Stratasys.


Jason Lopes is lead systems engineer at Legacy Effects, a practical effects studio that has combined 3D printing with traditional sculpting, prosthetic make-up, and mold-making to create indelible monsters, armored suits, anthropomorphic animals and intricate robots for today’s biggest movies (Avatar, RoboCop, The Muppets, Iron Man, etc.).

They also use 3D printing technology to augment entirely digital characters with lighting and reference models as well as custom 3D-printed tools and molds. Not only are they ahead of the Hollywood additive manufacturing curve, but they’ve been utilizing the technology since the early 2000s.

Legacy’s systems engineer Jason Lopes is an industry specialist who will take you inside the processes, workflows and real-world solutions that are allowing Hollywood studios to create better-looking movies in less time with an improbable combination of advanced precision and increased flexibility.
