Duck is given 3D printed prosthetic feet



Phillip the duck is waddling again thanks to his new 3D printed prosthetic feet, After losing his feet to frostbite, Phillip the duck was going to be put down until Middle school teacher Jason Jischke called Phillip's rescuer Rabe-Harrison, to let her know his class was working on printing Phillip replacement feet.


It took six weeks of testing to get the prosthetic feet just right for Phillip. They used TPE flexible filament which can be stretched up to to twice its original length before returning to it's original form when released. Phillip the duck is getting used to his new 3d printed feet at an animal sanctuary north of Milwaukee.
