WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (The Exponent) – Handheld, plastic models of a Tyrannosaurus rex’s skull, a turbine and a bust of a Purdue student all have one thing in common: they’re products of Purdue’s new 3-D Printing Club.

The club began with a couple of technology enthusiasts making 3D prints out of a college dorm room for fun. Crowds would gather around to see the cool things Ryan Kung, a senior in the College of Technology, was making in his room at First Street Towers. Almost two years later, Kung is now the president of the 3-D Printing Club, which he founded along with a couple of friends in the fall of 2013.
