Deaf-blind people often find it difficult to access specific tools (due to high prices, specialised shops, long shipping times, etc.) or impossible (it is not profitable to manufacture them for such a small sector of society).
The main objective of the project is to create a bank of 3D models printable under Creative Commons license that can be used by people with deaf-blindness (or other disabilities). It also aims to bring the world of deaf-blindness closer to the rest of society, as well as raising awareness about the specific needs of disabled people.

Diversidad Impresa invites teachers and students, in collaboration with the youth committee of FASOCIDE, to model everyday things for a deaf-blind person who can print them in their homes and use them. The project starts by publishing the projects that are proposed to the team behind it and dividing them among different student-based work groups and their corresponding teacher-tutors, in order to obtain and disseminate a printable 3D format with its proposed solution later in the course.
