Swell Form Tactile Graphics

Tactile Graphics For Everyone

Swell Form + Swell Touch + Swell Markers

The Swell Form Tactile Graphics Machine (Formerly Zy Fuse) is a simple, fast and low cost method of creating stunning tactile maps, diagrams, text and graphics. This tactile machine has revolutionized the process of creating tactile images.

How It Works

Zy Chem has developed special Swell Touch Paper that when heat is applied to it the black or dark elements of the drawing will become raised. The Swell Form Tactile Graphics Machine is designed to apply an even amount of heat at a specific heat setting across the Swell Touch Paper to create a high quality tactile graphic.  Free pre-made tactile drawings can be downloaded at the tactilelibrary.com or you can use the Swell Touch Pens to draw your own works on the fly.

Tactile Teaching Example

Create Your Graphic

Print a graphic that contains black ink on Swell Touch Paper, or use Swell Touch Markers to freehand a drawing on the Swell Touch Paper.

Swell Form Machine

Feed your tactile drawing through the Swell Form machine one at a time.

Review and Refine

The document will now be raised, however you can run the document through again to increase the size. Or add additional artwork to create a multi-level tactile document.
