3D Printers in Service to Others

A Mizzou student organization based in the College of Engineering recently has completed a pair of projects designed to help others. The 3D Printing Club (3DPC), which is open to any current student or employee of the university, had planned to ship a prototype of a prosthetic hand to a charity in India and did install a tactile map of the northwest section of campus in front of the south entrance to Jesse Hall in December.

A close-up shot of the tactile map, consisting of small 3D-printed models of various buildings on campus, paired with a Braille legend.

Tactile map near Jesse Hall invites inclusion

A new tactile map, created by MU's 3D Printing Club and installed near Jesse Hall is the first of its kind for MU. The map, unveiled Dec. 3 to celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, features hard plastic versions of the buildings on the Northwest quadrant of campus, from McReynolds to Tate Hall.
