Hi Krista,

Do you mean you are looking for resources about the accessibility of 3D printing? I’m fairly new to 3D printing (as a hobby), and as I far as I can tell the software for printing and design seems dependent on having some vision.

CU Boulder has a “Build a Better Book<https://www.colorado.edu/project/bbb/>” program that focuses on creating tactile children’s books. Maybe they have some insight or contacts that may answer some questions.

I met a faculty member whom wants to know more about 3D printing and accessibility. Who is a good contact? What resources do you like?
