Stratasys has announced it is collaborating with Big Dog Productions, the media production firm headed by North American comedian Jay Leno. The new partnership is an extension of Stratasys’ Performance Partner Program.
As part of the program, Stratasys will be providing the company with access to its FDM 3D printers to support the motor vehicle television series “Jay Leno’s Garage”, in which the former “Tonight Show” host conducts reviews on a wide range of vehicles, including vintage and restored cars. With access to Stratasys 3D printers, Leno intends to service his large collection of vehicles, located at his Big Dog Garage in Burbank, California, with 3D printed custom parts.
“Jay has long been one of the pioneers and adopters of 3D printing. He realized the technology’s potential for on-demand, custom parts early on – claiming it as a critical component to fueling a passion for classic vehicles,” commented Pat Carey, Senior Vice President of Strategic Growth Americas at Stratasys.
