3D Systems Enables Derby the Dog to Run with 3D Printed Custom Prosthetics

ROCK HILL, South Carolina, December 16, 2014 – 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) today announced that it has successfully outfitted Derby the dog with 3D printed prosthetics, allowing him to run down the street for the first time ever.

Hard surfaces, like sidewalks, cause severe abrasions on his front extremities.

Having fostered Derby through the dog rescue group Peace and Paws in Hillsborough, N.H., Tara Anderson decided to help. Tara, as a 3D Systems employee, knew that 3D printing afforded an unmatched level of design freedom, functionality and speed. Using 3D technology, she knew it would be possible to rapidly design and manufacture prosthetics customized to Derby’s morphology.
