Restaurant manager Eric Moger lost half of his face to cancer.
Now the Sydney Morning Herald reports that his 3D-printed facial prosthetic has made his life normal again.
By scanning and creating a digital 3D model of Moger's face, surgeons were able to use a computer to fill in the missing parts.
This prosthetic was then rendered in nylon plastic using a special machine that can lay the material down layer by layer.
Moger is able to drink a glass of water normally again. Head over to the Sydney Morning Herald for the full story >
