Iowa 3D Club: Projects that Change

Help us reach our stretch goal of $2,500 by Sunday, December 2! 


About Us

The Iowa 3D Printing Club is an organization focused on the professional development of students through projects and events including several disciplines the University of Iowa has to offer. The Iowa 3D Club is a student-run organization that emphasizes teamwork and collaboration to make the world a better place. Although there are a plethora of projects the club is currently undertaking, all are connected using the cutting-edge technology of 3D printing. Our primary goal is to be able to design, fabricate, and donate 3D printed prosthetics to less fortunate children. The possibilities are endless when passionate professionals and student leaders combine under the same cause to leave the world a better place than when we started. We invite you to partner with us as we attempt to improve the lives of others.


What’s Happening?

The Iowa 3D Club continuously strives to empower and celebrate the potential of student lead humanitarianism through advanced technology. We hope to connect and work with passionate people and organizations that are looking to help catalyze collective action in the Hawkeye community and beyond. In its first semester, the Iowa 3D Club is already working on some amazing projects, including: 

  • Children’s Prosthetics 

  • Animal Prosthetics

  • Inventing a Chocolate 3D Printing Machine

  • Great Barrier Reef Restoration Infrastructure

  • Commercial Engineering Services

  • Revolutionary 3D Printing Research & Development

  • STEM Youth Outreach
