GLIFO – The Custom-Made Writing Aid

At 3DEXPERIENCE World 2021, in the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab, we heard from Enrico Bassi, Fab Lab Director and Manager of the FabLab in Milan, sharing the story of Glifo. Glifo is a 3D printed custom aid that helps children with disabilities achieve autonomy in writing and drawing. OpenDot FabLab together with TOG Foundation recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the new design of Glifo (lighter, smaller, easier to use), as well as the development of an online configurator that will enable anyone to personalize their own Glifo from home.

The event was called Girls in Computing and the aim was to get more younger students, particularly girls, thinking about taking computing. We spent time with students from Ellesmere Port Catholic High School, teaching them about the variety of careers in digital.
