One of the main limitations of 3D printing is its "slowness". Often, though, this is an issue only when one actually needs to manufacture many identical copies of the same object. Still, it is an issue.

To help understanding the multifaceted concept of DiDIY it is important to introduce its operational definition (D3.1, par 2.4):
Integrative modelling is a term coined to describe a particular way of simulation modelling, where researchers take data from a wide variety of sources (e.g. interviews with experts, literature reviews, excerpts from statistical databases, or surveys of the public) in order to develop a detailed simulation model. Such a model could be said to "integrate" the available data.
DiDIY is also about changing work practices, and the DiDIYer is a persona with an innovative mindset.
