University Information Technology Services (UITS) 3D Print Labs offer 3D print services and design consulting to students, faculty, and staff of IU. Our spaces focus on Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and 3D print workflow, but our expertise extends beyond. If you are interested in consulting with us on a project or if you are interested in 3D printing, please contact us!


Polylactic Acid (PLA) is our primary print material. It is a biodegradeable thermoplastic. Material properties sheet.
Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) is a support material that allows us to print complex models and submerge them in water to dissolve the excess supports in places that would otherwise be inaccessible. Material properties sheet.
Nylon is a more durable print material. Limited availability. Material properties sheet.
