Darwin, April 20 2021 - SPEE3D releases SPEE3DCraft; a novel free-to-download additive manufacturing (AM) simulator where individuals can explore genuine metal 3D printing technologies and processes in a way that is both fun and educational, directly from their PC.

April the 16th, SPEE3D released SPEE3DCraft; a downloadable simulator which grants craftspeople and 3D printing enthusiasts the opportunity to discover real-life metal 3D printing workflows using the same technology and equipment developed by SPEE3D. Through this intuitive, gamified simulator, individuals can now engage with genuine additive manufacturing techniques once shrouded in ambiguity, virtually anywhere, and for free.

See the SPEE3DCraft Simulator Trailer:

In SPEE3DCraft users play as a craftsperson. They are tasked to interact with additive manufacturing technology and machinery to design, print, post-process and supply as many metal parts as possible. The user's score is determined based on how many high-quality metal parts they can deliver within a time limit. Almost every aspect of the simulator has been programmed to be a reflection of SPEE3D’s existing high-tech AM techniques.


  • A free, training-based modern metal 3D printing simulator.
  • Explore and learn authentic metal 3D printing. Use real-world technology and machinery in an uncomplex way to design, print, post-process and supply metal parts.
  • Discover how to 3D print metal parts across multiple environments; in the desert, on a ship deck, in a factory - and more!
  • It’s challenging but fun! Print as many high quality metal parts as you can within the time limit and claim your high score.
  • Features realistic Autodesk Fusion 360 CAD software used in the actual manufacturing industry.

Autodesk director of additive manufacturing Alexander Oster states: “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”.

Developed in-house, SPEE3DCraft is a multi-environment simulator designed to provide users the most authentic AM experience possible. It is a first-of-its-kind simulator which demonstrates the SPEE3D metal 3D printing process from end to end. Launched April 16th it can now be downloaded directly from the simulator’s official website.

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