3D Printing is being used to save animals’ lives

Many animals are injured due to natural or man made causes. Although the animal may still live, it will have difficulty surviving. However, wildlife experts have started using 3D technology to help replace broken parts of the animal’s body.

3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing is the construction of a three dimensional object from a digital 3D model. Any material, such as plastic or powder grains can joined together through computer control. 3D printing has found its way for a variety of uses such as creating models, pottery and even making necklaces.

In this way 3D printing is also being used to help heal animals. The problem is that there are a wide range of animal species. The size and shape of the animal is also considered. The result is that the experts have to be even more specific than if its for a human being.

Still, that doesn’t stop people from helping injured animals. Some people may think that killing the animal is the best solution. However, an animal’s life is just as precious as a human’s life. It is believed that 3D printing can be continued to save animals even in the future.

There are many animals that have been saved using 3D technology from printed prosthetics to replaced beaks and horns.
