Keeping Baby Tortoises Safe with 3D Printing: Update on 3D Printed 'Techno-Tortoise' Shells

Keeping Baby Tortoises Safe with 3D Printing: Update on 3D Printed 'Techno-Tortoise' Shells

You may remember, from last fall, seeing a 3D printable birdhouse that was resistant to predators, thanks to its durable, double-shell design and high entrance to keep chicks inside. There have been several other instances where 3D printing technology has been put to good use keeping our animal friends safe, such as creating decoys like 3D […]
