Video: Beauty and the Beak; a Bald Eagle’s 3D Printing Story
Here’s a great story. Beauty the Bald Eagle gets a second chance with help from 3D printing technology.
A bald eagle was shot and lost her upper beak. A “bionic beak” was fabricated using software designed for the aerospace industry, then 3D printed and affixed to the bald eagle in an elaborate procedure.
