Minneapolis-based 3-D printing specialist Stratasys Ltd. has collaborated with the Stan Winston School of Character Arts, Legacy Effects, Condé Nast Entertainment and Wired magazine to create a 14-foot tall giant creature, which will be showcased at the Comic-Con International 2014 conference.

"Everything about the giant creature project was ambitious, including size, weight, delivery schedule and performance requirements," said Matt Winston, co-founder of the Stan Winston School.

"Without the close involvement of our partners at Stratasys, whose 3-D printing technologies are in our view revolutionizing not only the manufacturing industry but the entertainment industry as well, none of it would have been possible."

More than one third of the giant creature was 3-D printed, including the chest armour, shoulders, arms and fingers.

Comic-Con International 2014 begins today and runs through Sunday in San Diego.
