3D Systems Digital Manufacturing Solutions Aid International Effort to Rehabilitate Abused Toucan Featured in Animal Planet’s TOUCAN NATION

ROCK HILL, South Carolina, August 22, 2016 – 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today that its digital manufacturing solutions played a crucial role in the rehabilitation of Grecia, a toucan in Costa Rica that lost the majority of its upper beak as the victim of a senseless act of cruelty. The attack on Grecia not only left the toucan unable to feed and fend for itself, but it sparked a national animal welfare campaign in Costa Rica that spread rapidly across the globe. 3D Systems assisted Grecia’s rehabilitation along with Grupo SG, a 3D Systems partner and reseller, by helping to devise a custom prosthetic for the injured toucan using the company’s end-to-end digital manufacturing solutions.
