The company's flagship product, the WarpSPEE3D, is the world's fastest metal 3D printer and canproduce parts up to 1000 times faster than traditional methods. This makes it the perfect solution foron-demand production and rapid prototyping applications. For the event SPEE3D teamed up with Gary
Rogers Motorsport to demonstrate the high-speed production of aluminum parts for the s5000 open-wheelers.

With a growing global customer base, SPEE3D has made a name for themselves in the additivemanufacturing industry. In recent years they have claimed many awards for their technology, and hold therecord for the world’s fastest print of a 1kg part. Headquartered in Melbourne, the company offeredpunters and global race teams the opportunity to witness this world-leading technology in action.It was the first time crowds of motor racing enthusiasts were able to see dozens of metal parts printed ondemand at the Melbourne Grand Prix.

One of the many metal automotive parts featured at the event included a s5000 Support Arm. This 2.4 kilogram aluminium part was printed in only two hours on a WarpSPEE3D metal 3D printer for the low cost of just $180 dollars.

The live demonstration at the event’s Versor Tech Hub highlighted how the printers are not restricted toworkshop or lab environments. SPEE3D’s technology is currently the only metal additive manufacturing technology proven to have the ability to print metal parts anywhere and in some of the world’s toughest environments. Since 2020, SPEE3D, and the Australian Army, have been taking the equipment on off-road field trials, proving that it is possible to 3D print and validate their own spare parts in rugged bushland and extreme conditions.

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