Hartford and East Hartford entrepreneurs and companies focused on manufacturing can now access 3-D printing, engineering design and other services, courtesy of the Technology Labs Assistance Program (TLAP).

TLAP, part of the Hartford/East Hartford Innovation Places initiative, is a collaboration involving Goodwin College, University of Hartford and the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology (CCAT).

Each collaborator will make their facilities and other resources available to participating manufacturing entrepreneurs and firms with 300 or fewer workers. Participants will receive project subsidies totaling half their total project cost, to a maximum $10,000 each, officials said.

"There's a wide array of area companies who perform advanced tech work, but they might not have the machines or resources to, say, build a prototype, optimize a process or fabricate a complex part," said CCAT's Paul Striebel.
