Disabled Wisconsin Duck walks with 3D Printed Feet

——————————————————-

A duck named Phillip lost his feet to frostbite in Wisconsin.  He was found by a teacher Vicki Rabe-Harrison who first considered euthanizing him considering his condition.  Instead, she contacted Jason Jischke, a middle school teacher who had a 3D printer in his class.  Jason asked her not to put Phillip down.  Jason worked with his students to develop feet for Phillip.  After multiple attempts, finally they managed to 3D print feet that fit Phillip.  Phillip struggled initially with the prosthetic feet but figured out fast how to use them.  He got a second life thanks to his 3D printed feet.  Phillip now lives in Wisconsin’s Autumn Farm Sanctuary, near Lake Michigan with other duck friends.

4D printer could accelerate technology

Posted on Updated on

American Chemical Society is researching about 4D Printer. They have the ACS 255th National Meeting & Exposition in New Orleans.
4D printer could accelerate technology. Scientists report that they have developed a powerful new printer that could streamline the creation of self-assembling structures that can change shape after being exposed to heat and other stimuli.
American Chemical Society says this unique technology could accelerate the use of 4D printing in aerospace, medicine, and other industries.:)

Bone Implant with 3D Printer

————————————-

In Russia scientists are using 3D Printer for bone implant using polymer matrix material.

They are using biodegradable product, this material is same material as body make the bone.
