Romi become first in Mexico for 3D print artificial limbs dog

Romi become first in Mexico for 3D print artificial limbs dog

Romi is six years old, the whippet is a medium size, now it’s Mexico Valley University (UVM) for 3D print artificial limbs, is Mexico domestic first puppy to accept Mini Office Home Desktop 3D Printer artificial limbs. 3D print dog prosthetics affordable, customized, of course also important part of 3D printing.u=3839792229,1652147886&fm=21&gp=0
Romi is in 2013, one lost a leg in the accident, which seriously damaged its walking function. Now, thanks to advanced 3D scanning and 3D printing, let it have a prosthesis, which will let it greatly improved the quality of life. “We made three 3D scanning Romi prosthesis design, and computer software will exactly match the dimensions. “UVM veterinary hospital Coordinator said.u=4044400541,1247511907&fm=15&gp=0
Final selection of 3D print artificial limbs to be completed within the next three months. It features a silicone joint mimic the natural movement of the dog-leg, which will use 3D printing of carbon fiber and aluminum material-extremely durable yet lightweight material it can run and jump. Finished prostheses and the fur of the same colors.
UVM uses 3D printing developed animal prosthetics mainly saw 3D printing savings, costs and benefits of weight, because the prosthesis can be used a variety of materials, from plastics to carbon fiber, aluminum or other metals, depending on the animal’s size, tailored to the specific needs. 3D printed prototypes to product models can be manufactured in as little as 24 hours.u=3524180916,1916202607&fm=15&gp=0
Romi has now installed a new prosthesis, now it is UVM veterinary hospital for 2-3 months of training in order to adapt it to the new. While walking it now still have some difficulties, but I believe it can adjust very quickly. Now doctors are considering treating her second broken leg.
