The hightech leg for a duck (3D-Print)

Not only humans have advantages by using the new 3D-Printing technique. Buttercup the duck was born with a backwards foot and now he will be able to walk with a 3D-Print foot. With a model of his sisters foot and the company Novacomapny, Buttercup’s owner made his new prosthetic foot. A mold was necessary to create the foot because the normal plastic used for 3D-Printing is not flexible enough. Buttercup is now running with his new prosthetic 3D-Printed Foot!
