SPEE3D, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, has now launched its recently-announced end-to-end metal Additive Manufacturing simulator, SPEE3DCraft.

Developed in-house, SPEE3DCraft is a multi-environment simulator designed to provide an authentic AM experience, with almost every aspect of the simulator having been programmed to align with existing SPEE3D processes and technology. For example, the duration of each operation, from manufacturing to post-processing the metal part is scaled to real time – even the CAD station featured has been designed to imitate the real Autodesk Fusion 360 CAD software used by SPEE3D.

Autodesk director of Additive Manufacturing Alexander Oster stated, “Autodesk Fusion 360 exists to provide users the power to create anything. SPEE3D brings a paradigm shift to metal Additive Manufacturing, providing dramatic reductions in production costs that will be revolutionary for the industry. Having representation of Fusion 360 in SPEE3DCraft is really unique, and we’re excited to see how it drives our complementary technologies providing value to new and existing users.”

In the simulator, users play as a craftsperson, tasked to interact with AM technology and machinery to design, manufacture, post-process and supply as many metal parts as possible. The user’s score is determined based on how many high-quality metal parts are delivered within a time limit.

“SPEE3DCraft shows people how SPEE3D’s metal 3D printing process works from start to finish in a way unlike anything seen before,” added Steve Camilleri, SPEE3D CTO. “From aspiring engineers to manufacturing craftspeople, we are excited to see how it inspires the practice of those who use it.”
