The Public Space, Citizen Participation and Historic Center research line of the Faculty of Architecture of the Benemerita Autonomous University of Puebla (FABUAP) has carried out projects of accessibility and social inclusion in the urban and architectural fields, based on the recognition of diversity and promotion of citizen participation. The article presents its experience of elaboration, evaluation and printing of two haptic models printed in 3D digital technology, which had two purposes: t...

In this article, through a systematic review of 22 empirical studies, is analyzed the educational inclusion of the students in disability situation in higher education. The results indicate that most of the works developed in the Spanish language have been carried out in Spain and in a smaller amount in Chile. Also, the barriers faced by institutions are related to the predominance of a paradigm focused on the deficit, lack of protocols, lack of teaching skills and a limited architectural univer...

© 2018 Elsevier B.V. The emergence of additive manufacturing and 3D printing technologies is introducing industrial skills deficits and opportunities for new teaching practices in a range of subjects and educational settings. In response, research investigating these practices is emerging across a wide range of education disciplines, but often without reference to studies in other disciplines. Responding to this problem, this article synthesizes these dispersed bodies of research to provide a st...

Background: Whether or not the addition of 3D (three-dimension) printed models can enhance the teaching and learning environment for undergraduate students in regard to bone spatial anatomy is still unknown. In this study, we investigated the use of 3D printed models versus radiographic images as a technique for the education of medical students about bone spatial anatomy and fractures. Methods: The computed tomography (CT) data from four patients, each with a different fracture type (one spinal...

Abstract. 3D printing has seen a recent massive diffusion for several applications, not least the field of Cultural Heritage. Being used for different purposes, such as study, analysis, conservation or access in museum exhibitions, 3D printed replicas need to undergo a process of validation also in terms of metrical precision and accuracy. The Laboratory of Photogrammetry of Iuav University of Venice has started several collaborations with Italian museum institutions firstly for the digital acqu...

This paper considers the destruction of the Arch of Palmyra in Syria in 2015 and its temporary reconstruction a year later in London’s Trafalgar Square. Attention is paid to an adjacent pedestal known as the Fourth Plinth, with a particular focus on a proposed monument by the Iraqi-American conceptual artist, Michael Rakowitz (born 1973). His works provide the basis for a discussion of public memorials and art’s commemorative function; the preservation, destruction and politicisation of heritage...

Three-dimensional printed models have the potential to serve as powerful accessibility tools for blind people. Recently, researchers have developed methods to further enhance 3D prints by making them interactive: when a user touches a certain area in the model, the model speaks a description of the area. However, these interactive models were limited in terms of their functionalities and interaction techniques. We conducted a two-section study with 12 legally blind participants to fill in the ga...

Special education teachers for visually impaired students rely on tools such as raised-line maps (RLMs) to teach spatial knowledge. These tools do not fully and adequately meet the needs of the teachers because they are long to produce, expensive, and not versatile enough to provide rapid updating of the content. For instance, the same RLM can barely be used during different lessons. In addition, those maps do not provide any interactivity, which reduces students' autonomy. With the emergence of...
