1. [UPDATE: VIDEO WITH BUTTERCUP WALKING!!]

    Buttercup the Duck gets a new 3D Printed Foot!

    When Buttercup was hatched in a high school biology lab with a backwards left foot, the duckling had a hard time walking without getting cuts and constant foot infections. Mike Garey at the Feathered Angels Waterfowl Sanctuary in Arlington, Tenn., knew Buttercup’s foot needed to be removed, but he wanted to do better than a peg-leg. He thought that a 3D-printed foot could build up Buttercup and not let him down.
