Aflac Duck uses 3D Printing

Well, not the duck specifically – but in a Winter Olympics Aflac advertisement, the exasperated Aflac duck snowboards down a mountain – using helmet and bindings printed on an Objet 3D printer. One can imagine typical snowboard bindings don’t account for webbed feet, and they obviously had to be custom made.

This is not the first use of Objet 3D printing for TV spots. Two Superbowl adverts used a similar approach. The “Lunch Room” featured a robot (Jeffrey) largely made from 3D printed parts. In “Bachelor Party“, models of a Killer Whale and truck were used to confirm lighting and layout. Always check the back of your truck!
