The Charter School for Applied Technologies High School has a new $20,000 addition.

Students will start using a 3D printer as soon as Friday to make materials for engineering projects. The printer can even create a functional wrench.

The school says it's an important addition to train students for manufacturing jobs in western New York.

"Business that we have spoken to and partner with all stressed students not only to know how to use it, but also to have experience use and be able to apply hands on skills," said Chris Morris, a teacher at the school.

The printer, and supplies, were funded by a grant from Moog, an aerospace company.
