3D Printing

The world needs more 3-dimensional solutions

We aim to improve exposure and create opportunities for students and faculty at IU to advance their skills and understanding of the use of 3D printing technology. We host a variety of workshops across campus for people from all disciplines and backgrounds. We offer both entry and advanced level workshops on 3D printing and design to fulfill both the personal and professional needs of our community. Join us at our center to practice your creativity, mess around with 3D printing, and hang out with makers, designers, and friends!
