In order to make it easier for students with visual impairments to understand and navigate Texas A&M University, freshman engineering student Tyler Wooten created a tactile 3D-printed college map with braille.
While taking a 3D printing course the university's Engineering Innovation Center (EIC), Wooten was inspired to create this tactile campus map. The small maps are printed with PLA and are just about a quarter of an inch thick, making them incredibly easy to tote around.
Wooten is furthering the development of the project with Kaitlyn Kellermeyer, who is an economics student at Texas A&M who lost eyesight in her left eye as an infant and recently, has become completely blind due to a loss of vision in her second eye.
