Das hier ist Buttercup, eine behinderte Ente mit einem 3D-gedruckten Fuß.
Meet Buttercup! He was born with a backwards foot, but thanks to 3D printing, now he will be walking with a prosthetic foot!
Buttercup's owner, a software engineer by trade, saw his struggle and teamed up with 3D printing company, Novacompany. After looking at photos of Buttercup's sister's foot, they were able to design a solution. Although the plastics typically used in 3D printing are not flexible enough for walking, a mold was made and is being used to create a silicone foot.
