Title: See3D Summer 2020: Growing and Adapting our 3D Printing Distribution Organization

       Since its inception in 2017, See3D, Inc. has distributed more than 900 3D printed models to people who are blind. In winter 2019, See3D was approved as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and this summer an internship program was created that encompasses a team of high school and college students working in strategy, web development, graphic design, marketing, 3D modeling, and learning plan creation. See3d.org has been updated to send model requests to a Slack workspace, so the amount of information shared to volunteers can be controlled. Learning plans, which are themed model kits with detailed and informative model descriptions in various accessible formats, are also being developed. Collaboration has expanded encompassing students in the United States, China, and Germany. Future plans include creating a YouTube channel, hosting podcasts, and modifying 3D printers to make them accessible to blind users.
