Drumroll Please!
We’re proud to announce the grand opening of the nation’s first MakerBot Innovation Center at the State University of New York New Paltz. The MakerBot Innovation Center is outfitted with over thirty MakerBot Replicator 2 and 2X Desktop 3D Printers and seven MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanners, paving the way for students and local residents to access 3D printing technology, not to mention creating a valuable recruiting and fund-raising asset for the university.

Supercharging Additive Manufacturing
This powerful addition represents a huge leap forward for the university’s existing 3D printing initiative, the Hudson Valley Additive Manufacturing Center (HVAMC), which already offers a bevy of 3D printing resources and training, such as:

— Collaborative educational programming with local community colleges and high schools.

— Active recruitment of 3D printing enterprises and access to venture capital funding.

— A unique certificate program in Digital Design and Fabrication.

Bre Cuts the Ribbon
MakerBot has worked for months with the folks at SUNY New Paltz to bring the first MakerBot Innovation Center to fruition. On Tuesday, February 11, our CEO Bre Pettis traveled to the SUNY New Paltz campus to deliver a lecture about the history of MakerBot and our continued dedication to innovation, and cut the ribbon on the new MakerBot Innovation Center. We can’t wait to see all the bold ideas that spring from Hudson Valley makers.
