Braille plates

3D printed Braille plates to learn Braille reading


Description: This set of the German braille alphabet was designed to introduce students into the braille language. The braille elements are triple the size of the original braille language and should facilitate braille-beginners in their tactile acuity. The plates also contain braille characters of the German braille shorthand, umlauts and special characters.
Material: PLA
Infill: 20%
Layer height:
>0.2mm <0.35mm
Support: None
Production information:
To enable the 3D print on FDM with two colours, each letter consists of 2 STL files. The STL file with "base" or "bse" in the filename, identifies the plate. The STL file with "top" identifies the embossed braille and Latin letters. To print the plates in one colour, simply align both files  in the slicer. To avoid sharp pimples at the top of the braille elements, setup the retract to 15mm minimum.
Postprocessing: The tips of the braille characters can be sanded with 1000 grit sandpaper.
