Millie The Dog : Australia’s First Pup To Receive a 3D Printed Prosthetic Leg


Doggie receives prosthetic leg using Autodesk’s Fusion 360 software and a 3D printer!

Now she can run, jump and play just like any other doggie. 

Millie the dog lost her paw when she was just a pup. Since then, it’s been a constant struggle to find a prosthetic leg that fits just right.

This challenge means finding a leg that’s comfortable, easily adjustable and can adapt to Millie’s. We have seen Millie try four different models and styles of prosthetic, but finally, she has found a leg that lets her run, jump and play. All thanks to 3D printing.

Millie’s fifth and current prosthetic leg can be altered to suit her body on a computer using Autodesk’s Fusion 360 software and a 3D printer. This means that Millie’s owners Ed and Nora Dieppe can print Millie a new leg without her having to be fitted for a replacement each time she grows.
