3D Printing is a combination of art, engineering, and problem-solving. At 3D4E, we strive to inspire people through the power of computer-aided design, and leave our own mark by building practical solutions to real-world problems through 3D-printed products.
Our club’s main focus
is on group projects, in which we design, manufacture, and test
using CAD software and 3D printing. These projects range from
recreational, like RC cars, to life-changing, like our prosthetic hand.
In addition to our group efforts, 3D4E also supports members with
the resources and expertise they might need to pursue their own
Project Hours: 7PM - 8PM Thursdays; Boelter Library SEL Learning Commons
Regardless of your background, major, or design experience,
we are committed to teaching all our general members how to
3D print from the ground up. During the Fall Quarter, after
we recruit new members, we will host weekly workshops to train
everyone how to use CAD tools like Fusion360, and translate your
designs into manufacturable prints.
Workshop Hours: 6PM - 7PM Thursdays; Boelter Library SEL Learning Commons

Mark is a fourth year Computer Science major. He began working with 3D printers in high school, and it quickly became one of his biggest hobbies. He enjoys constructing 3D printers and uses 3D printing for a number of small projects. He also spending time volunteering by teaching elementary school students about science and technology. In his free time, he enjoys playing with VR, folding origami, and learning guitar.
Amanda Han is a third year computer science and engineering major. She joined 3D4E because she loves 3D modeling and tinkering with 3D printers. Aside from 3D4E, she also participates in projects with Creative Labs. Outside of academics, she likes dungeons and dragons, singing, and creating "art" with her 3D modeling.
Anna is a fourth year MIMG major who enjoys drawing and writing in her freetime. While she doesn't have too much experience with 3D printing, she picked up Fusion360 as a means to CAD a kpop lightstick for her friend's birthday and fell in love with 3D modeling somewhere along the way. Anna enjoys the process of bringing her creations to life and is currently taking requests for presents, fun projects, and black magic seances.
Kyle is a third year mechanical engineering freshman who strives to create contraptions that are completely pointless, but not entirely useless. Besides spending more time than he cares to admit designing these contraptions, Kyle also enjoys using 3D printing to create costumes and cosplay props with his sister; from Overwatch to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Kyle will gladly shunt his studies to bring these characters to life. Not the best role model.
Ryan is a third year computer engineering major who enjoys working on small projects, his most recent one being a 3D model of Pikachu. He has worked with microcontrollers and small circuits, and outside of academics he likes to work out. Currently, he's interested in VR.
Tiffany is a third year undergraduate computer science major. She discovered the world of 3D printing through 3D4E and is very excited to design more projects on Fusion 360. She is also involved with the Innovation Lab in Boelter as a volunteer. During her free time, she enjoys watching Chinese dramas and doing graphic designing. In the future, she wants to travel to different cities like Shanghai, Vancouver, and New York.
Harlan is a fourth year computer science major. He was introduced to 3D printing and modeling in college and was taught to use CAD software by the 3D4E workshops (come check those out!). Harlan is interested in using Blender to create and rig printable video game models.
Hello! I’m a third year computer science major who first found 3D4E and 3D printing from the flight team. I’m excited to keep learning about 3D printing this year and working with new people on exciting projects. I grew up in the Bay Area enjoying watching the NBA in my spare time as well as running and playing video games.
Hey everyone, I'm a 4th year physics student at UCLA. Honestly, 3D printing has brought me so much joy and this club has taught me so many needed skills I'll use later on in my future endeavors. But more importantly, I've met really inspirational people in this club who I'm proud to call friends!
Hey, my name is Lushe Shipkov, and I'm a 2nd year aerospace engineering major. My focus in the club this year is working on flight team, and when I'm not in class I enjoy all things 3D-printing, programming, and enjoying everything LA has to offer!
