Here is he story of a dog, Derby. He born with the front legs deformed and the dog was unable to run and enjoy it’s life. Then the doctor and engineer’s tried to help the dogs with wheel cart by attaching it to the forelegs but that didn’t performed very well and dog was not that much free to move as normal healthy dogs do.

Then finally orthopedics and a team of 3D printing experts designed a 3D model of prosthetic legs for this dogs. And after that day the dog’s life is changed. Now the dog runs 2-3 miles daily and he seems quite happy with it.

Tara Anderson, a director at 3D printing company 3D Systems, adopted this dog, Derby, from non-profit dog rescue Peace and Paws. She said in the video, “I kept looking at his photo and reading his story and I cried literally every time”. So she decided to do something good for this dog and created a pair of specially designed and 3D printed prosthetic legs for Derby, and it results in one happy dog.
