OSHKOSH, Wis., April 18 (UPI) -- A Wisconsin duck that lost his feet to frostbite is up and walking again thanks to his new 3D-printed flippers.
Vicki Rabe-Harrison, who took in Phillip the injured duck, contacted Jason Jischke, a teacher at South Park Middle School in Oshkosh, about using his classroom's 3D printer to replace the avian's lost feet.
"We are now using what's called Ninja Flex, and Ninja Flex is a flexible material," Jischke told WBAY-TV.
Rabe-Harrison said Phillip is doing well with his new feet.
"He picked it up real fast, and I'm sure he'll learn to balance again and be able to waddle around with all the other ducks," she said.
She said Phillip is now headed for a new life at a sanctuary in Cedarburg.
