It is hard to imagine a world without the technique of 3D printing.

3D printing has become a purposefully solution in education for visually impaired (VI) students, as it creates the possibility to literally make education tactile. 3D printing has made it possible to create accessible and usable tactile materials in a relatively simple and cost-effective manner.

Unfortunately, not all educators are aware of the possibilities that 3D printing brings to the education of VI and MDVI (Multiple Disabilities with Visual Impairment) learners. Additionally, educators often have specific ideas for improving existing materials or creating new ones, but they lack the ability to produce these materials themselves.

Considering the importance of these opportunities that 3D printing provides for VI and MDVI learners, we have included links below to short videos. These videos will help you get started with 3D printing in general, as well as its specific applications in education for learners with visual impairments.
