SUNY New Paltz receives grant for 3-D printing technologies

NEW PALTZ – A $250,000 grant from Central Hudson is providing businesses and students with resources and experience in working with the latest 3-D printing technologies by supporting the Hudson Valley Advanced Manufacturing Center at SUNY New Paltz.

The college has received the last $83,000 of the three-year grant.

The utility first partnered with the college in 2014 to create a center for advanced manufacturing and the HVAMC serves as a hub for innovation and as a production area for companies seeking to print manufactured items, supporting innovation, start-up businesses, and prototype development by bringing 3-D to the region.

It also links the Schools of Fine and Performing Arts with the School of Engineering to provide an introduction to how to conceptualize and create digital designs that can be fabricated on a 3-D printer.

“The funding has allowed us to create one of the most advanced 3D fabrication facilities at any academic institution in the country,” said School of Science and Engineering Dean Daniel Freedman.

Over the last two years, the school has worked with more than 100 local companies, inventors, artists, designers and entrepreneurs, helping them use the latest 3-D printing technology for prototyping and creating end-use parts,” he said.
