Ever heard of a turtle with anything prosthetic on it? No, well you are about to. 3D Printing has been helping make the lives of animals better for years. They make things such as prosthetic limbs and wheeled carts for dogs.
At one of his educational programs, Novelli made comments about an idea that he came up with. This idea was to 3D print a shell for Cleopatra. Just so happens that someone from the Colorado Technical University was in the audience that day and agreed to help make his idea come to reality.
Thanks to 3D Printing, who not only helped scan Cleopatra and the team at Colorado Technical University Cleopatra is doing well. She now does not have to worry about getting hurt or sick through her thinning shell.
