Inclusive design and 3D printing workshop

Booked out

Booked out.

Led by AbilityMate, learn how a team of human-centred designers can use technology to co-create customised solutions for people with disability. From design prototyping to testing, discover the potential of user-led, collaborative design.

Surry Hills Library has a snazzy 3D printer that you’re welcome to use. This workshop is best suited to people with disability – predominantly physical as well as anyone interested in the inclusive design processes.

Presenting a “case study” design, AbilityMate will walk you through the process of inclusive design prototyping, all the way to the “test print.” Because their designs are open-source, you can bring your own device preloaded with CAD software – Matter Control and Tinker CAD and take the template to use and modify through the creative commons license.

This workshop is suitable for anyone with basic digital skills. The good news is, you don’t need to be a CAD expert because our facilitators will guide you to greatness.

This free workshop runs for 3 hours and caters for up to 20 people but bookings are essential.

Surry Hills Library is wheelchair friendly with a lift and an accessible toilet.
