The Art Institute of Colorado Students Create 3D Printer Prosthetic for Kitten

Recently, The Art Institute of Colorado and the Denver Animal Shelter worked together to help a four month old kitten named Sonic. The kitten was born with a deformed front paw. While visiting the shelter, a group from The Art Institute of Colorado indicated that they could create and print prosthetics on a 3D printer at the school. “The Sonic Project” was born in that moment—and on June 1, 2016, the kitten was fitted with a prosthetic device that will enable it to walk. 

ABC, CBS. and NBC television affiliates from Denver were on hand to cover the story. There were also two radio interviews—one with a large talk radio station in Denver and another with Colorado Public Radio. The Denver Post also ran a story and the good news is spreading nationally through social media and other channels.
