Studie: Nutzen von 3D-Druck für indigene Gemeinschaften

Studie Nutzen von 3D Druck für indigene Gemeinschaften2 300x256 - Studie: Nutzen von 3D-Druck für indigene Gemeinschaften

Im Rahmen einer neuen Studie untersuchte ein Forscher-Team den Nutzen von 3D-Druck für indigene Gemeinschaften. Erste Ergebnisse konnten bereits in Fällen von nomadischen Rentier-Hirten erhoben werden. Oft haben abgelegene Gemeinschaften oder Völker mit Problemen zu kämpfen, deren Lösung für unsere fortschrittliche Welt offensichtlich oder simpel wirken. Doch ein oft fehlender Zugang zu Elektrizität, kein Zugang [...]
