About Us

The UofL 3D Printing Business Incubator is home to the Mechanical Engineering Capstone Design Program and is directed by Prof. Sundar V. Atre, Endowed Chair of Manufacturing & Materials at the University of Louisville. Here startup teams of 3-4 students will design a product, prototype it using 3D printing and identify a scalable pathway for a viable business in order to compete for a future round of financing. The 3D Printing Business Incubator is a part of the Digital Manufacturing and Design Program involving a consortium of companies that will participate in the growth of 3D printing in terms of R&D, workforce development and products. Our  startup teams are housed at the Materials Innovation Guild.
