3D Printing Pen Receives Endorsement for Learners with Vision Loss
By Sri Ravipati
3Doodler Start recently received a coveted endorsement for one of its 3D printing pens from a major United Kingdom-based charity for people who are blind or have vision loss.
The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) has endorsed the latest version of 3Doodler Start as easy-to-use for those with vision loss, making it one of only a dozen products to ever receive an endorsement from the charity. To be endorsed by the RNIB Approved program, products must undergo testing by several groups of students with blindness, partial sight or have other disabilities, as well as their teachers.
The company’s pens don’t require a computer like most 3D printers; users simply plug it in to begin drawing in the air.
