Help Max get a new beak!

Update posted by Trevor Glover On Oct 28, 2018

Hyacinth Haven Bird SanctuaryWithout a top beak to maintain it the bottom beak continued growing straight out which started preventing Max from feeding himself.
With Max due to have a CT scan at Onderstepoort by Professor Gerhard Steenkamp and Dr Dorianne Elliot it was decided by them to first operate on his lower beak to bring it in line with its original shape.
Max then had a few days R&R before being taken for the scan.
This was to determine the feasibility of successfully fitting a 3D printed Titanium beak.
After the scan Professor, Dorianne and Philip van der Walt of Bunnycorp animal prosthetics were able to say with certainty that we should go ahead with the planned beak.
Now the process starts that will be using the scan results and 3D models to finalise everything, and trial, all in computer before printing the prosthetic and fitting it to Max.
The actual printing of the beak would be done by Johan Els of the Central University of Technology in Bloemfontein.
No time frame at the moment but in my book we are off to a great start.
Photos and videos can be seen on the Hyacinth Haven Bird Sanctuary Facebook page.
