Miracle of 3D printing gets this duck a prosthetic leg

A Canadian duckling duck lost a leg after engaging in battle with a chicken. Thanks to the miraculous invention of 3D printing, he got a prosthetic leg so he could get on with his life easily. The duck suffered a tragedy when a chicken attacked him and killed his brother and left him without a leg. Dudley was having a hard time swimming with one leg and walking on the ground, a co-owner of the shelter decided to design a 3D leg for him.

Having just launched 3 Pillar Designs, Terrence was not so sure about taking the duck as his first client but as soon as he saw the duck struggling with one leg, he decided to do something. He used his biomedical training to design a prosthetic hinge-less leg that worked like a charm. The feeling that Terrence got by helping the duck is just priceless and he knows the leg will have to be replaced as the duck grows up and he is launching newer and better versions one after another. He also puts the designs on his website so that anyone who is willing to help a suffering animal can design something to help the poor animal all by pressing the print button on a 3D printer.
