How 3D printing can help improve even a dog’s life
We always say that 3D printing is a great revolution. And this is more than true. 3D printing is helping the world to improve in ways we could hardly imagine some years ago. Even dogs can benefit from 3D printing today, and this story really means something.
Luisa was discovered at an animal protection agency in Germany. Born without forelegs, Luisa is a handicapped puppy that, thanks to 3D printing, can now be mobile and independent.
Everything started with aimzz idea to create an adaptable wheelchair for Luisa. The wheelchair is basically a 3D printed cradle made in PLA and adapted to Luisa’s natural posture so that she can comfortably move on her everyday life. And the best part of the project, as it usually happens among the 3D printing community, is the fact that it is an open-source project. So this means that everyone on the same situation can use aimzz’s 3D models available at Instructables.
And more, thanks to 3D printing, altough it may look an expensive project, it is not. The wheelchair costs around $150 to build and can be completely adjusted to your animal’s needs.
This is another proof that 3D printing is changing our world completely. Would you imagine some years ago that one day you could build such a great project with such affordable prices? Would you even imagine that you could build yourself a wheelchair and change a puppy’s life for real?
We think that no one could imagine it. But the truth is that, thankfully, it is actually happening. 3D printing is truly changing the way we make and see things and that’s great. Everyone now can be creative and reach paths that one person alone could never reach before. What are your thoughts about it? Share with us!
