SPEE3D, a leading Australian additive manufacturing company, decided to showcase the world’s fastest metal 3D printer at the recently held Melbourne Grand Prix. The grand prix, an event known for its speed and innovation was the perfect venue to present its super-fast technology to visiting crowds.

WarpSPEE3D is the world’s first large format metal 3D printer to employ patented SPEE3D technology, which allows for significantly faster, more cost-effective, and scalable production than traditional manufacturing.

It is capable of producing parts up to 1000 times faster than traditional methods. As a result, it is ideal for on-demand production and rapid prototyping applications. SPEE3D collaborated with Gary Rogers Motorsport for the event to demonstrate the high-speed production of aluminium parts for the s5000 open-wheelers.

SPEE3D has made a name for themselves in the additive manufacturing industry, with a growing global customer base. They have won numerous awards for their technology in recent years, and they currently hold the world record for the fastest print of a 1kg part. The company, based in Melbourne, gave punters and global race teams the opportunity to see this world-leading technology in action.

It was the first time that crowds of motor racing fans saw dozens of metal parts printed on demand at the Melbourne Grand Prix. A s5000 Support Arm was among the many metal automotive parts on display at the event. This 2.4 kilogramme aluminium part was printed in just two hours on a WarpSPEE3D metal 3D printer for the low price of $180.

The live demonstration at the Versor Tech Hub at the event demonstrated how the printers are not limited to workshop or lab environments. SPEE3D’s technology is currently the only metal additive manufacturing technology that has been proven to print metal parts anywhere and in some of the harshest environments on the planet. Since 2020, SPEE3D and the Australian Army have been conducting off-road field trials with the equipment, demonstrating that it is possible to 3D print and validate their own spare parts in rugged bushland and extreme conditions.

Byron Kennedy, CEO of SPEE3D stated, “It was exciting to showcase our technology at this fantastic event here in Melbourne. SPEE3D’s technology is the world’s fastest way to make metal parts, and what better place to show this off than at the Grand Prix which is all about speed and innovation!”
