The IU Center of Excellence for Women & Technology promotes a culture of technology skill development through a variety of content and formats including the understanding, design creation, and use of 3D printers. Through the process of 3D printing, one can create a 3-dimensional object by laying down successive layers of material based on a computer driven design. We provide workshops for students, faculty, and staff that introduce the concepts behind 3D printing and design and describes the design process, use of modeling software, and actual printing of the designed objects.
