Darwin/Melbourne-based additive manufacturing company Spee3D has announced that it will release a free-to-download simulator on April 16.
In a brief release, the company promised “the first end-to-end metal manufacturing simulator” where users can “design, print, post-process and supply metal parts” in a selection of virtual scenarios.
“It looks like a game. It has level environments. A time challenge. But at the same time, it’s not really a game because this simulator shows what metal 3D printing actually involves,” said co-founder and CTO Steven Camilleri.
“We are hoping this simulator will provide people a helpful insight into SPEE3D’s processes, how they can use it to benefit themselves and their own industry”.
The company said an official trailer would be released shortly ahead of the April 16 launch.
The announcement follows news last week that Spee3D was installing one of their machines in El Salvador at bureau service 3D In Metal.
