Derby the dog gets better 3D-printed paw prosthetics Video Description

According to 3D Systems Director Tara Anderson, they realized in the end that the best option was to create prosthetics that have a little bit of give and take like real knees do. Instead of 3D printing, the company turned to selective laser sintering to bring his new legs to life. SLS is a manufacturing process that uses heat to fuse tiny particles of material to create a 3D object. The result is two bouncy prosthetics that allow Derby to move like any other dog and like he's had front legs all his life.
