WASP Releases DeltaWASP 3MT Printer—On Tour Now from Europe to New York

Share this Article

delta_3mt1It seems the DeltaWASP 3MT has settled right into its duties, and we’ve become quite well-acquainted with it already, despite its formal release just kicking off. With a previous unveiling at Additive Manufacturing Europe in Amsterdam last June and some other cameos, along with being recruited to help at the 3D printed village of Shamballa, the 3MT has had some very good buildup prior to release. This is a company we always enjoy following as well, because as fascinating as it is to hear about 3D printing on the nanoscale, who can resist checking out the massive 3D printed works continually emerging from WASP?

Now, the 3MT is on quite a tour, from TCT Show Birmingham Sept. 28-29 to Digical London Sept. 30-Oct.1, and Maker Faire New York from Oct. 1-2. With quite a hectic worldwide schedule, thousands of visitors around the world will be able to satisfy their curiosity in finally seeing the DeltaWASP 3MT printer up close and at work.

Described, quite aptly, as a self-production instrument, the 3MT is meant for the fabrication of large-scale items (up to one cubic meter) such as all sorts of innovative furniture, from coat racks and umbrella stands to lamps, chairs, tables, and more.

The manufacturer considers it to be a valuable tool for all of the following:

  • Designers
  • Architects
  • Technical schools
  • Universities
  • Research centers

The standard version 3D prints with granular plastic as its material; however, with a simple switch of the toolhead, users can also print with dense fluids—or with another, cut wood and plastic. The WASP team indicates that soon users may also be able to print with recycled materials also. This printer is part of what they refer to as the Maker Economy line, and the concept behind this new technology is research and development ultimately meant to offer everyone a way to create self-sustainability and independence.

With a 3D printer such as this, the WASP team sees houses being built without debts and materials being used from local resources in communities where they can also strive to produce their own energy, food, and other commodities. This thinking is right in line with what is happening at Shamballa Technological Park, with the BigDelta WASP currently in the process of building the first house for what will eventually be their completely 3D printed village in the Italian municipality of Massa Lombarda.

WASP intends to keep building on their ideas—and products—with their next step being the production of the Maker Economy Starter Kit. This will offer a container that includes instructions and tools for building a house that is completely self-sufficient. The WASP team will be presenting more with a preview about the starter kit just next month as they attend the Rome Maker Faire from October 14-16.
