Bears on Stairs isn't a high concept art piece, or a stop motion short that features revolutionary digital techniques or a highly detailed puppet cast. It's a simple short which showcases a simple idea that is sure to be imitated by many animators to come.
DBLG has come up with a rather ingenious way to create a stop motion short with the help of 3D modeling/animation software and a 3D printer- they created the bear character and the stairs using 3D animation software, animated the bear walking up the stairs then printed out each element frame by frame.
It may not be the most efficient way to create a stop motion short, but Bears on Stairs is a good example of how 3D printing can be integrated into a traditional artform like stop motion animation.
