While we may have only heard about 3D printing recently, this technology has actually been around for about 40 years. During those this time, 3D printing technology has made the impossible possible and all it takes is a design and the printer and you can print yourself anything your heart desires. Scroll down to see some of the coolest things ever printed n a 3D printer.
This sweet, living toucan had his beak broken and was unable to feed himself. Luckily his beak was reconstructed thanks to a 3D printer! Using technology to help wildlife repair itself in a way that it otherwise could not is one of the coolest things.
A toucan without a proper beak cannot eat its food and therefore would die if the repair did not happen – that is downright inspiring and we are completely in awe of how good it looks too. This toucan is one lucky bird.
