Weak documentary on 3D Printing- Netflix  "Print the Legend"

Netflix recently released a documentary on 3D printing called Print the Legend.  The following was my review on Netflix. I'm a big Netflix fan but this really damages their brand equity.


Review for Netflix:

This movie was an absolute injustice on the power and beauty of 3D Printing. It was a piss poor soap opera that served to illuminate a few neophytes instead of talking about the true pioneers of this industry. Other than Reichental, there was no education on the pioneers that actually used the past 30 years to develop one of the critical technologies of the advancement of product development. Where is the story about Hull and Crump and the countless others that actually spent their careers building an industry instead of 99 minutes of babbling about a few folks that were late to the party and spent their time “stealing” the technology that others had already developed? It was about the re-packaging of other companies intellectual property under the pretenses of “open-source”, which is a great idea when you have nothing to share and then becomes an easy change in philosophy when you think you have something special.  There was nothing shared in this movie about the innovation, the technology, the process or the real applications.


Summary: This was a crappy infomercial to promote a few folks that are not innovators or visionaries. The only credibility was the inclusion of  Avi Reichental, who has made bold decisions (not necessarily harmonious decisions) and deserving of much credit for the advancement of the industry in the past few years.



As for the reviews, they must be from the mommies of the guys in the movie. You definitely didn't learn anything of substance about 3D printing in this movie.
