3-D Printers Advance Architecture, Design and Engineering at KSUA


University engineers and designers are developing ideas from concept to prototype using some of the latest 3-D printers. The layer by layer printing process has helped professors and students explore new possibilities for creating prototypes, formula car parts, models, tools, and — on a less conventional note — eyeglasses, custom-made clothes and intricately designed puzzles. In the College of Architecture, Planning & Design, two professors — Dustin Headley, assistant professor of interior architecture and product design, and Nathan Howe, assistant professor of architecture — are using 3-D printers to help students explore the limits of gravity and to challenge themselves as designers. The college has two 3-D printers: a uPrint that uses strings of ABS plastic and a Form1 printer that uses liquid resin and lasers. Students in Howe–s architecture classes have 3-D printed model pieces for projects while students in Headley–s product design classes have printed tiles and product prototypes.
