In this phase we’ll work to replicate the model wherever the conditions are favorable. (The goal is to go to places where there’s plenty of source material and demand for filament and then set up an operation that will minimize the related transport.

We’ll also work to develop socially-beneficial products using 3D printing in this phase. Potential products that we’re looking into include prosthesis, orthotics, replacement parts, tools, and more. We plan to run inclusive innovation workshops with the goal of having community member devise and test possibilities for beneficial opportunities using 3D printing.
