“3D Printing, the Factory of the Future” (“Impression 3D, l’usine du futur”) is a special exhibition dedicated entirely to 3D printing technology.
This project was conducted in two schools by the P2P Lab (a research hub focusing on open source technology and the commons) in the city of Ioannina, Greece. Students experimented with 3D design and created objects with features that would enable blind people to use them. Then using an open source 3D printer the odjects were manufactured. The designs were also made available under creative commons licenses.
