Autodesk and Voxel8 announce Project Wire software for 3D-printed electronics
3D design software company Autodesk has partnered with 3D electronics printing company Voxel8 to develop Project Wire, a program for creating 3D-printed electronic devices.


Project Wire provides a 3D component library, wire rendering, and printing capabilities for developers to create and print electronics. Combined with the Voxel8 developer kit and printer, the software enables fabrication of freeform three-dimensional circuits, giving developers the ability to place components, route 3D wires and output multi-material print data from within the interface.

Project Wire will be available with the Voxel8 printer “later in 2015,” according to the Autodesk website.
