D. Anecdote

TTAP provided sample 3D printed items to our 22 Demo Centers. This prompted interest in 3D printing broadly, and for the sample items more narrowly. We have created and are inviting membership to a network of "makers and printers" across Texas with the clever name of TAMALES (Texas A.t. Makers ALiancE- see graphic). The intention is that the network will provide local support and resources for people to get items 3D printed in their geographic areas. We plan to offer training on disability specific 3D printed tools to this group. We have a vetted list of .stl files and resources here: https://padlet.com/STPaige/ttap-and-3d-printing-jajt8w04674ztoq7.
