Created as part of a university project, Digital Disability Design was designed specifically to enable people from all over the world to create their own networks of collaborative, 3D printable projects.
The scope was for individuals to make and share 3D CAD files for disability assistance tools (e.g. eating apparatus) and then share those files using the platform with anybody else who wished to acquire a similar design. Designs could then be collaboratively improved.
An online forum was to be included, where users could share tutorials as well as discuss ideas for designs. The forum would also act as a networking tool, bringing people together from all parts of the world.
The final part of the platform would involve those without access to 3D printing equipment being able to search for their local participating creative space or academic institution with 3D printing capabilities and use their resources to print any CAD files they had downloaded from Digital Disability Design.
