In order to promote the development and democratisation of 3D printing as an answer to societal needs, Sano Celo provides training programmes for all interested partners, such as NGOs, universities, hospitals in developing countries etc.
There are 4 main training orientations :
- • use of open source software
• building a 3D printer
- o Sano Celo has worked on the building of an open source printer capable of replicating itself (able to print 70% of its constituent parts)
• training in 3D production methods. Numeric string, 3D design
• training in building an external mechanical prothesis
For a truly positive impact, it is essential that these training programmes are effective long term. The aim is that after training, a person has full understanding of the fabrication process, and can work autonomously to find a solution via open source platforms
