Unseen Art: 3D Printing Classical Paintings for the Blind

3D Printer

Classical art is being recreated through the 3D printing process by the Unseen Art Project in order to allow the blind to enjoy timeless pieces like the Mona Lisa. However, blind people who interact with the art will be encouraged to touch it, creating sensory stimulation in a way that allows them to enjoy these pieces.

The Process of Going From Art to Part

The Solidworks Blog

At some point in your life you’ve inevitably heard the phrase “art to part.” It’s a multi-faceted process and rarely is it linear. Amazingly, for most designers, this intensely creative process often fits into a fairly formulaic progression. In the process of gathering information, the designer will also accumulate bits of inspiration that will be used to feed concepts and shape design elements. It is often a messy process that involves quite a bit of lost effort.
