The fast development of rapid prototyping technology has allowed to significantly simplify life for disabled people with visual impairments. The use of 3D printing in the manufacture of products for the blind greatly expands the ways of their communication in society, increases the level of inclusive education by ensuring equal access to quality education for children with special needs. The article describes the most common methods of three-dimensional printing and briefly describes the basic principles of their work. There were considered materials that are used most commonly in the manufacture of products for the blind by these methods, their advantages and disadvantages. It this work, there is also presented the cause-effect diagram of Braille 3D printing for assessing the impact of technological factors on the quality of the information reproduction process for blind people. Ensuring the consistently high level of inclusive and proper quality of print products for the blind is always an urgent and priority aspect of the work of most institutions and printing industry organizations, in the implementation of which each of them faces a number of issues related to the selection of optimal parameters of technological operations, equipment characteristics and properties of materials. The extension of the inclusive education process is not only a reflection of time, but also represents another step towards ensuring the full realization of the rights of people with special needs for quality education. Facilitates the solving of such a task as the large-scale introduction of technology of three-dimensional printing in the production of products for the blind. Therefore, it is expedient to carry out further research of materials and their properties, which are used in 3D printing technologies, which will allow to recreate the corresponding geometric parameters of relief-dot Braille images that are difficult to achieve in traditional printing methods.

Постановка проблеми Тривимірний друк займає, без сумніву, перші позиції на світовому ринку, вносячи свої корективи в епоху інновацій. Сьогодні технології 3D-друку радикально змінюють такі важливі сфери діяльності, як промисловість, медицина, космічні дослідження тощо 1), суттєво полегшуючи життя людей [1], у тому числі з вадами зору. Найбільш поширеною технікою читання серед незрячих на сьогодні є шрифт Брайля, яким користується понад 40 млн.
