Derby Gets New Legs

A year ago, I posted a video about Derby, the dog with 3D-printed front legs. Derby’s front legs are deformed, so he rests his weight on his elbows atop the prosthetics. Tara Andersen of 3D Systems tells us how the design of the legs had to change as he grew. And you can see here how it doesn’t matter whether the prosthetics actually resemble legs, as long as they work for Derby. You can read more about Derby at gizmag.  (via Uproxx)
