3D Printing Gets Three-legged Dog Ziggy Back on His Paws

Last year, a group of students at the Virginia William Byrd High School 3D printed a wheelchair for Lilly, a two-legged goat using the large-format 3D printing technology enabled by 3D Platform. This week, we just discovered another great story about 3D printing saving animals’ lives.

The two-year-old Border Collie was found abandoned in 2014 as a puppy, with a broken front leg that wasn’t correctly healing and required amputation.
