Welcome to the Manufacturing and Design Exploration Research Group at the University of Arizona (MADE @ UArizona), led by Dr. Hannah Budinoff.

MADE focuses on exploring and solving problems at the intersection of engineering design and manufacturing.

Often, our research focuses on solving manufacturing problems using computational geometry techniques, with a particular emphasis on additive manufacturing

MADE also studies how the design process can efficiently operate at the human-technology frontier, drawing on methods from human factors engineering.

We are interested in understanding how designers can design and manufacture products in a cost-effective and sustainable manner.

Our ultimate goal is to create tools, methods, and knowledge that promote efficient design for manufacturing in industry.
