Haltman V. Sadowski



Material culture is when people use certain objects and resources to help understand their culture. 3-D print is basically the print of an object to replace an old object into more what you need rather than going out and shopping for it. Combining both Material Culture and 3-D printing we can employ many ways incorporate touch and several  other senses into our cultural senses. This therefore has a great impact on those who are visually impaired. The 3-D structure is one of many great technological advancements that can help advance the experience of one who is impaired.3-D printing is important for research and also the reconstruction of many different objects. Through this 3-D printing can help retrieve old methods of teaching and learning.

The most challenging part of this assignment would be making the connection between both material culture and 3-D printing. I learn that when I annotate I should point out stuff that applies to both texts some that the connection could be made a lot easier.

  1. Is 3-D printing a kind of “material culture”? In what sense (or not)? What does Haltman say about “material culture”? Is it important? to whom? why? (or why not)? How do your answers to these questions help you understand Sadowski’s claims about 3D printing?

    1. Yes, 3-D printing is a type of material culture, because how valuable can something be if there’s an infinite amount of copies of it.
