Rapid printing tech featured in military export inventory

A low-cost rapid 3D printing technology developed by Charles Darwin University in the Northern Territory has been included in a military sales catalogue that features many of the world’s biggest defence industry contractors.

The LightSPEE3D printer is faster than conventional laser systems and can produce metal components within minutes. It has been developed in the past two years by the Advanced Manufacturing Alliance at the university’s Darwin campus.

The printer is featured in the 2019 Australian Military Sales catalogue, an inventory of military equipment that is produced by the federal government to promote defence technologies.
