The Human Integration into Sustainable 3D Printing Systems Part II: Design Experimentation

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1216)


This is the second of a two-parts study concerning the integration of the human factors, and in general the integration of all human centred aspects, into fully sustainable and sustainable-oriented 3D printing systems. In particular, this second part of the study will present the design experimentations obtained after the methodological implementation with the Human Centred Design approach on a relevant case study, which is only one of the twenty experimentations carried out. Results obtained in this paper integrate the theoretical and methodological ones developed in the Part I of the study: ‘Methodological Setting and Human-System Integration Strategy’.
