3D printing—otherwise known as additive manufacturing—is coming to the Hudson Valley in New York in a big way. The Hudson Valley Economic Development Corp. (HVEDC) announced in May that it has embarked on a third, major cluster marketing initiative in addition to the NY BioHud Valley and Hudson Valley Food & Beverage Alliance. The HVEDC expects that the 3D printing initiative will grow to be the largest of the three clusters.
HVEDC President and CEO Laurence P. Gottlieb formally launched the organization's new Hudson Valley 3D Printing initiative, which puts together in one place educational and funding resources for Hudson Valley businesses or individuals, wanting 3D printing technology.
"[The] Hudson Valley 3D Printing initiative is bringing together business people with academia and community leadership to rapidly accelerate the growth of one of the most exciting technologies to emerge this century," said Gottlieb at the HVEDC's 'Next Big Thing' breakfast series hosted by SUNY New Paltz
