3D Titanium Beak for a Parrot


3D-printed titanium beak gives Brazilian macaw Gigi
a chance to crunch food for first time




The new beak was designed by professor and 3D designer Cícero Moraes who shared photos of the process on his personal Facebook page.


He dubbed the surgery an "historic moment", saying it was the first time a macaw had received a prosthetic 3D-printed beak.

I saw this on Facebook, it's fantastic! I've seen a few eagles with similar after having theirs shot off, it's amazing what technology can do
