New Paltz Pushes 3-D Printing Beyond Campus

SUNY New Paltz is looking to bring the latest printing technology into a different dimension.

Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. put forward the final installment of a $250,000 grant to expand the 3-D printing program located out of the school’s Hudson Valley Advanced Manufacturing Center (HVAMC).

“SUNY New Paltz and the Hudson Valley Advanced Manufacturing Center are very grateful for the continued support of Central Hudson,” said Daniel Freedman, HVAMC director and dean of the School of Science and Engineering. “The funding has allowed us to create one of the most advanced 3D fabrication facilities at any academic institution in the country.”

Partnering with Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation and Hudson River Ventures, Central Hudson helped launch the Hudson Valley 3-D intiative centered out of New Paltz in 2013. With the founding of the HVAMC of the following year, over 100 local designers, entrepreneurs, and more have used the site to learn more about 3-D printing.

“Central Hudson is thrilled to be a part of this exciting initiative at SUNY New Paltz,” said Anthony Campagiorni, Central Hudson’s Vice President of Regulatory & Governmental Affairs. “We’re happy to have had the opportunity to contribute to this worthwhile initiative, and look forward to seeing HVAMC build on its current successes.”
