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!

Come learn about and engage with 3-D technology and design.

Hi I'm Lindsey Kitchell and I’m the lead intern for the 3D printing and 3D design Alliance team. Our goal is to teach IU students, faculty, and staff about 3D printing and 3D design and we want to help individuals at IU engage with this exciting new technology and find ways that they can apply it to their interests and career goals. We hope to increase interest in 3D technology and show everyone that this is an attainable skill that you can learn on your own. By teaching introductory workshops on 3D printing and 3D design we hope to show students at IU that they are capable of learning and using this technology and we hope to grow interest in 3D technology across campus.

Lead Intern


I am in my senior year studying elementary education with a concentration in science here at IU. I hope to be a middle school science teacher, but I would be just as happy teaching any elementary grade. I love to read, bake, sing and watch t.v.!



Anna is a first-year graduate student who recently earned her bachelor’s in Intelligent Systems Engineering, concentrating in Cyber-Physical Systems from Indiana University. Continuing with a master’s in the same field, she wants to work with smart tech that is meant to interact with humans via natural language processing. Her interests are largely in AI within linguistics and the development of smart and autonomous tech.



Kara is an intern with the 3D Printing and Design team here at the center. She is a junior majoring in Marketing and Business Analytics through the Kelley Business School.
