Abstract:Three-dimensional (3D) printing technology has been widely known as a type of digital fabrication. Therefore, the development of human resources can take advantage of digital fabrication by providing better assistive technology services in local communities where users with disabilities live. In this study, we planned training programs to learn effective use of digital fabrication for assistive technology service, and then conducted experimental workshops. The workshops provided not only the opportunity for learning digital fabrication but also an opportunity to collaborate with the participants to improve assistive technology services.
