Disabled duck to get new foot with help of 3-D printer

NASHVILLE — Buttercup the disabled duck will gain an opportunity next week not common to most waterfowl.

He is expected to get his new webbed foot prosthetic, courtesy of NovaCopy and its 3-D printing engineer, Joel Graves.

Engineers at the Nashville-based copier reseller didn’t think helping a duck live a normal life would be a project they would encounter during the rise of 3-D printing. But they agreed to donate their time, expertise and technology to help Buttercup when a suburban Memphis waterfowl sanctuary approached them.
