3D printing isn’t only for the budding hobbyist, it can also create life changing items and can be used for just about anything.

Tumbles, a puppy born without his front legs in October this year was rescued by Friends of Shelter Dogs, a non profit organisation, when he was only two weeks old. He learned to walk by using his nose to stabilise himself when walking on his back legs. 

Ohio University printed Tumbles a wheelchair to help him get off the ground and use his back legs more naturally. Tumble’s wheelchair roughly took 14 hours to print on a standard consumer printer. A group of physical therapists are helping Tumbles adjust to his new set of wheels. Tumbles will be provided with free wheels for the rest of his life.
