Open Source and Open Design in Contemporary Design Processes


Due to the interlinking of technologies and the resulting complexity of design considerations, it has become increasingly difficult to understand, monitor, and execute the entire design and production process. Although specific knowledge exists of technological aspects—for example, the handling and variety of applications of 3D printing from rapid prototyping to product-ready prostheses—there is no holistic understanding, in our opinion, of how future technologies and the resulting conditions will be manifested in design.
