Dr. Seah’s creative technologies class, Intro to 3D Modeling incorporated a Makeable Challenge for their end of semester final project. This Makeable Challenge is a yearly 3D printing and assistive technology design challenge, developed in collaboration with Autodesk and partners. It allows participants to design a 3D printed solution for a person with any type of disability. This year, over 17,500 people in 50+ countries have registered for the challenge.
Dr. Seah’s class turned in 3 submissions from 3 teams of students. To Dr. Seah’s great pleasure and surprise one of the teams (Team Oakland City University) has made it to the finalist for the Best Open Source Design (over 18) category! This team consists of 3 Creative Technologies students.
When asked about how she felt about the project she said, “I am very proud of what our students are able to accomplish, especially for being new to 3D modeling and 3D printing! All the best to them as judges continue to vote for winners.”
