3D printing makes it possible

Dear Sir or Madam,

Technically skilled and inventive: Tony Stark alias Iron Man is probably the epitome of a self-made superhero. Today, however, you don't have to be a multi-billionaire to develop your own individual little helpers. All you need is an idea, a little bit of technical know-how and a 3D printer. From a gripping aid to small gimmicks for your wheelchair to an Iron-Man hand for children - 3D printing makes a lot of things possible. In our Topic of the Month we show you which great projects already exist and how 3D printing could change the auxiliary means industry.

Have an individual week,

Anne Hofmann
