Tortoise Burned in Fire Gets Custom 3D Printed Shell

Things were looking grim for tortoise Freddy when he was caught in a bush fire in Brazil. Thankfully a group of tech savvy surgeons called The Animal Avengers assembled to his rescue and gave Freddy a second chance in the form of an awesome 3D printed shell.

Freddy was the first tortoise in the world to receive a fully rebuilt hull and the first creature that we, as a newly formed group of animal rescuers, decided to help,” said the designer Cicero Moraes. He managed to recreate a 3D version of a former shell looking only at Freddy’s pictures. The design was sent to a dental surgeon, Dr. Paulo Miamoto, who then 3D printed the actual shell.

Awesome news for Freddy, and a glimpse into the promising future for the rest of us.

His shell was badly damaged so a group of volunteers made him a new one…with a 3D printer!

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