3D Printing is a fast-growing disruptive technology that is changing the manufacturing sector in many ways, improving both the design of products and the production processes. Whilst the most traditional research contributions tackle the role of the technology in manufacturing, the implications on the social and inclusive dimensions are less considered and explored, although it is proven that the social instances of contemporary society can motivate the development of bottom-up radical innovations at the small and large scales. This paper aims to identify the design relations between 3D Printing and Social Inclusion. This study proposes an original and promising design research framework composed by four macro design-oriented research lines linking Design discipline with 3D Printing and Social Inclusion. This study can be considered significant because it proposes a convergence between 3D printing and Social Inclusion using a Design Research processes.
