heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as part of the MSc in Strategic Product Design at the International Hellenic University. The present study combines the research, study, design and manufacturing of a tactile map for the navigation of visually impaired people into archeological sites. 3d printing was chosen as the method of manufacturing due to its versatility and ease of production. The map design is modular to allow for future modification and the material was chosen based on a research conducted with a group of visually impaired people. Furthermore, the study focuses in pre - elementary children and was made in collaboration with the School for the Blind “KEAT” and its instructor Leia Avraam. Resin was chosen as the optimum material for manufacturing , based on a survey that took place among the students of “KEAT”. The other suggested materials were PLA and PA and PP . The map was designed using Solidworks software and has as a primary goal to help the end - user orient himself within the archeological site. The modular design allows potential future users to print archeological site maps in their 3D printers at home. In order to minimize the haptic noise, further studies were made with the same group, involving different types of connections with the pieces. The type of connection that was chosen features a male to female connection among the different pieces.
