WASP Makes Progress, Moves Headquarters of 3D Printed Village of Shamballa

WASP Makes Progress, Moves Headquarters of 3D Printed Village of Shamballa

Two years ago, the World’s Advanced Saving Project, aka WASP, announced that it would be starting work on what seemed like an extremely far-fetched, if not impossible, project – 3D printing an entire village. To be constructed in Massa Lombarda, Italy, the village of Shamballa was to be an ecological, technological showcase that demonstrated a truly […]

2017: The Year in 3D Printers

We’ve reached the last days of December, which means that it’s time to start looking back on what’s happened in 2017. Whether you’re reviewing the year with a nostalgic or a “thank goodness it’s almost over” attitude, there’s no denying that it’s been an eventful year, and that’s true in the 3D printing world as […]

3D Printing of Disaster Relief Tools and Shelters, and R&D Tax Credits

As measured by the ACE index, September 2017 has become the most active month on record for Atlantic hurricanes. Category 5 Hurricanes Irma and Maria, and Category 4 Hurricane Jose have left billions of dollars in damages to heavily populated areas on the Gulf Coast and Atlantic coasts, due to severe flooding and sustained maximum […]

WASP's 3D Printed Scenic Design Work Complete for Teatro dell'Opera in Rome

I volunteer with a few local theatres in Dayton, mostly as a sound technician and a stage manager, and occasionally as a member of the stage crew. But I generally stay away from working with the sets – I’m not much of an artist, so I don’t like painting flats, and I’m just a little […]

3D Printing Takes the Stage with Theatrical Scenic Design

For my final project in scenic design class as part of my theatre major, I had designed a table with a stylized hollow center and needed to cut foam using a band saw for my set model. In the process, the foam fed back into the saw, pulling my hand with it. I lost the […]

Hawk 3D Proto Supports UK Police: Delivers and Installs DeltaWASP 4070 Industrial 3D Printer, Trains Officers at West Yorkshire Police Regional Scientific Support Unit

3D printing definitely has military applications, but the technology can also be very useful in terms of helping out our local law enforcement, from making traffic stops safer and helping to identify victims of homicide, to using 3D scanners to create a virtual reconstruction of crime and accident scenes and creating digital, 3D printable records of evidence. […]

WASP Takes on the Gluten-Free Challenge with a Celiac-Safe 3D Food Printer

I tend to be a bit suspicious of any food-related trend, no matter how many people adopt it. The gluten-free diet is one of those trends – I can’t imagine cutting out all of the foods I regularly eat that have gluten in them, and I have friends with celiac disease who say they’d give […]

Something for Everyone in 2016: A Look at This Year's New 3D Printer Releases

I spend every day immersed in news about 3D printing, so obviously I’m aware of the fact that there are a lot of 3D printers out there. I’m also aware that that statement is an understatement.

3D Print Big! WASP and Opendot to Offer Five-Day Workshop on Large-Scale 3D Printing

WASP (World’s Advanced Savings Project) has developed multiple 3D printers in varying sizes, but they’re probably best known for their gigantic mega-printers, capable of 3D printing entire houses and villages. The great thing about the Italian 3D printer manufacturer, however, is that they refuse to keep their ingenuity to themselves. The purpose of the organization has […]

The best thing about WASP, in my opinion, isn’t the amazing things they’ve created – although they certainly have created some incredible things. They’re 3D printing a village right now, for heaven’s sake. What really makes them a remarkable company, however, is that they’re not interested in patents or profit – they simply want to […]

Beating the Odds: Adaptive Athletes Turn to WASPMedical for 3D Printed Prosthetics, Excelling in Surfing & Canoeing

Not too long ago, I happened to glance at a social media post offering up typical reading materials for young men and women today, with a girls’ publication showing off makeup and hair and heartthrobs, while the subject matter geared toward young males seemed to revolve completely around outdoor sports. With a caption that insinuated […]

WASP BigDelta Gets Ready to 3D Print an Entire Italian Village

Everyone likes to fantasize about a utopia, where everyone gets along, everyone is happy, and there is no war, injustice or suffering. Most religions teach the concept of some sort of ultimate utopia — heaven in the Judeo-Christian tradition, or, in Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism, there’s Shambhala. The hidden kingdom is said to be a […]
