He thought that a 3D-printed foot could build up Buttercup and not let him down. Garey took several photos of the healthy left leg on Buttercup’s sister, Minnie, and combined them in AutoDesk to create a 3D model. Garey sent this file to NovaCopy, a 3D printer reseller in Tennessee and Texas, which agreed to use its technology to create model duck feet.
