First Ever 3D Printed Shell For A Tortoise (6 pics + 2 gifs)

Posted in Animals   24 May 2016   / 4630 views

This tortoise named Freddy was badly injured in a fire in Brazil and lost his shell almost completely. But Animal Avengers, an animal rescue group, decided to help him. They created the world's first ever 3D printed shell. Freddy now is one happy tortoise.

The group call themselves The Animal Avengers, and as you can see, their skills are superhuman

The new shell fitted Freddy perfectly but it needed a little color

So the team hand-painted it to look as natural as possible

It looks just as good as the real thing!

The Animal Avengers assemble includes four vets, one dental surgeon and a 3D designer

The real Avengers are nothing compared to this superhero team!
