Perform demonstrator: Combining industry 4.0 technologies into one device! [EIT Success story 2020]

While there are different training devices available for individual manufacturing technologies, such as 3D printing or augmented reality (AR), there has not been a demonstrator that combines these digital technologies to provide a single, multipurpose educational tool. This new tool offers more realistic training, as a number of different digital technologies are generally combined in advanced manufacturing operations in the real world.
