Behind the Scenes: Machine

The development blog for Machine, a short film with computer-generated characters in a miniature environment, has lots of detail on the process of creating the miniature interior and exterior sets. Their work is very impressive.

There is one post that details their use of rapid prototyping equipment and 3D printing to construct some of the miniatures. Although this is only a side note in their construction process, I believe that this will become more and more common in producing miniatures, particularly in cases when multiple duplicates of a single item must be produced. Much quicker and easier than casting.
