The presented paper aims to create a more affordable way to present culturally-historical objects like paintings, masterpieces, tapestries, objects, artifacts, etc., and make it more accessible to visually impaired or blind people. The State of the Art of the team shows that the already used method received good feedback at the exhibition "Battle of Pavia 1525" in Pavia, Italy, from more than 11 000 people, who take part in exhibition in Italy. This encouraged the team to continue developing the idea. An approach on the base of the Bulgarian patent application named “Tactile graphical tile for visually impaired people” is described. By using innovative methods for 3D digitalization, also by using more accessible and affordable materials for 3D printing the culturally- historical objects can be presented in schools for visually impaired or blind people. By using approaches are shown how can be reduced the time for 3D digitalization. Conclusion and future developments are presented.
