TurboRoo wheeled his way into our hearts.
An adorable dog just got a new set of wheels, thanks to 3D printing and the kindness of strangers.
TurboRoo was born without his front legs. As a baby, he used a contraption that looks like a child’s toy modified to attach to his body, but as he grew his owners knew he’d need a more permanent solution. They began raising funds online to fit Roo into a wheelchair, but thanks to 3D printing, they can save the money.
Mark Deadrick, president of 3D design company 3dyn, saw Roo’s story online and designed and printed a wheelchair from online photos. He added rolllerblade wheels and sent the contraption off to Roo’s family. Voila, adorable puppy on an adorable 3D-printed wheelchair. Now they can modify chairs for him at a minimal cost as he grows, and other designers can add modifications to make Roo’s quality of life even better.
