Are you interested in figuring out how 3D printing could improve your learning capability inside or outside of the classroom? We'll illustrate how you can print 3D gegraphical regions with a 2D height-map image file and make the print come to life! Come adventure with us as we take you through the Massanutten region and compare multiple softwares for 3D printing geography.
Maps of America
Have you ever wondered what the presidential election looks like as 3D print? We have taken the electoral college and transformed electoral vote into 3D prints. Through trial and error we have created these maps as a visual learning tool to better understand how the electoral college works in elections.
BrailleWiz is a group of four dedicated students who are commited to making students who are visually impaired more accessible around campus. By utilizing Braille and floor maps, we are able to create 3D prints of specific buildings on campus. In addition, by creating a campus map that is 3D, students will be able to visually feel James Madison University.
Better Than Apple
Better Than Apple’s main goal was to 3D print a mask that could trick the iPhone X’s facial recognition software. We wanted to know if it could be done by University students working with a small budget. Using the tools we were taught in our critical thinking course, we created masks that we believed had a chance. Our approach was predominantly trial and error which quickly began to produce quality attempts.
