Derby the Dog Gets New 3D Printed Legs

Sadly, Derby the dog was born with a deformity that left him without the ability to walk without some sort of assistance. Derby had an initial set of 3D printed prosthetics that allowed him to get around, but weren’t perfect.

Those legs put his front too low to the ground and looked uncomfortable. 3DSystems, the company that made the original prosthetics came back, designed him a new set of front legs, using Selective Laser Sintering tech. The result are the taller white figure-eight prosthetics you see here that allow Derby to get around much better than ever.

I wonder how much training Derby required to get used to the prosthetics. Check out the adorable dog in the video as can now take walk like any other pooch. Here’s a look at the original 3D printed legs so you can see how much of an improvement they’ve made:
