The article discusses the manufacturing a limb prosthesis and exoskeleton using 3D printing technology. Hand prostheses available on the market and the direction of development in the construction of exoskeletons have been characterized. An example of a prosthesis made using incremental technology by the FFF/FDM method using a Zortrax M200 printer is presented. The mechanism of prosthesis work and elements of exoskeleton construction as well as the general characteristics of materials used are described. Attention was paid to the low cost of printing the components of the prototype structures.
