The team behind the documentary also seem excited about this announcement,

“From the day we knew the 3D printing world would be our focus, we set our sights on a SXSW premiere,” Luis Lopez, Clay Tweel, and producer Steven Klein said in a statement. “To premiere in front of the most tech savvy and entrepreneurial festival crowd in the world and partner with the Netflix documentary team — who work brilliantly at the cutting edge of distribution – is truly a dream come true.”
