Steakholder Foods launches 3D modelling software for client use
Steakholder Foods has announced the launch of its proprietary Light CAD Editor software, providing an easy-to-use platform for 3D model customisation.
The software offers a user-friendly interface that “works seamlessly” with the company’s fusion printers, enabling clients to create, test and optimise 3D models and fibrous textures for Steakholder Foods' 3D bioprinters, without the need for third-party software or extensive computer-aided design (CAD) training.
The Light CAD editor is said to be a “game-changer” for Steakholder Foods' fusion printers, which are known for their capability to create highly sophisticated, textured end products. The company says that the ability to customise textures on-site will empower clients to fine-tune their end products, ensuring they meet or exceed industry standards and consumer expectations.
Steakholder Foods' Chief Engineering Officer, Itamar Atzmony, commented: "We know from experience that designing the best 3D-printed meat products involves a lot of trial and error, and that our customers need the tools to optimise their offerings. That's why we're not just offering 3D printing; we're offering a comprehensive solution that allows our clients to customise like never before."
Atzmony continued: "As we move closer to commercial-scale production, this software will undoubtedly become an invaluable asset in creating products that truly meet consumer demands."
