 The beauty of 3D printing is that if the design needs to be adjusted, we don't have to wait for time-consuming and expensive traditional manufacturing processes, we can simply print out a new set," says Buddy Byrum, 3D Systems. One Small Step for Canines THE CLIENTS PRODUCTION Derby, the dog Anderson consulted Derrick Campana, an orthotist at Animal Ortho Care in Chantilly, Virginia, to create a cup design that would fit Derby's front legs. 3D Systems designers Kevin Atkins and Dave DiPinto then used measurements of Derby's forelegs and 3D scan data of the cup design to create a plan for 3D-printed prosthetics. The team used 3D Systems' digital sculpting platform, Geomagic Freeform, to create smooth, organic curves matching Derby's shape. Next, they turned to the ProJet 5500X, a 3D printer that delivers multiple materials in one build. Prosthetics comprising comfortable rubber cups supported by a rigid base and spokes were printed within a few hours. Derby's newly adoptive owners, Sherri and Dom Portanova, didn't hesitate to let Derby revel (or, maybe, roll around) in his new freedom. "He runs with Sherri and me every day, at least two to three miles," Dom says.

Having fostered Derby through the rescue group Peace and Paws in Hillsborough, New Hampshire, Tara Anderson, director of ColorJet Printing product management at 3D Systems, decided to find a solution. http://www.3dsystems.com
