3D Printing Makes New Foot For Disabled Duck

coolnumbr12 (2889243) writes "Mike Garey at the Feathered Angels Waterfowl Sanctuary in Arlington, Tenn., knew Buttercup’s foot needed to be removed, but he wanted to do better than a peg-leg. He thought that a 3D-printed foot could build up Buttercup and not let him down. Garey took several photos of the healthy left leg on Buttercup’s sister, Minnie, and combined them in AutoDesk to create a 3D model. Garey sent this file to NovaCopy, a 3D printer reseller in Tennessee and Texas, which agreed to use its technology to create model duck feet."
