Derby’s life, enhanced by 3D printing

3D printing allows Derby to walk and run. With his prosthetics created on 3D Systems ProJet 5500X, he can function much like any other dog and even leads way ahead of his owner.

Derby enjoys life with and without his prosthetics.

His treatment has allowed him to function in ways most other dogs can. He now has the mobility and freedom to run, walk and stand thanks to 3D printing technology.

The printing of Derby’s prosthetics was done on a ProJet 5500X by 3D Systems.

The ProJet 5500X created the prosthetics that Derby could soon run in. Notice the details and small features on the device, these are all possible using the ProJet 5500X.

Derby has mobility that he never would have had if 3D printing didn’t exist.

With our technology, most things like prosthetics for Derby can be printed in a few hours, with unmatched accuracy and smoothness in every case.
