11 Facts on WASP
1. Full Name
2. Company Information
Situated as one of the most interesting and ambitious projects within the 3D printing industry, WASProject (World’s Advanced Saving Project) manufactures professional printers which encourage sustainable development and continuous research.
The company was founded in 2012 on the desire to leave a better world (“We’re dreamers, we’re Makers: we start from 3D printing to save the world”). WASProject is focused on developing 3D printing from its roots in the world of open-source development. The WASProject story has a longstanding history from the first machines and technology (called PowerWASP) developed – propelling the brand into the world of digital craft with minimum energy consumption. Since then the company have produced a number of professional 3D printer products.
The revenue from the sale of WASProject printers is invested into the research and development of integrated projects – ultimately aimed towards a production revolution and the creation of 3D printed, clay structures and homes. This research advances hand in hand with eco-friendly, sustainable and functional materials with innovative systems. The projects which have so far been realised by the group are 100% self-financed.
The WASProject product offering is varied in scale with a common technology approach to 3D printing. With a tripod structure surrounding a centrally positioned extruder, this fast, economical and versatile 3D delta printer model is realised in a number of ways.
Big Delta WASP 12m
This impressive structure is a hugely up-scaled version of the smaller Delta model series – and is often constructed outdoors as a demonstration of the 3D printing of buildings using a clay-like material.
This 3D printer is currently not commercially available. All3DP did a report on the Big Dela WASP happening.
WASProjects events are just as much a part of the company as its products. Produced as social interventions, these maker-inspired festivals demonstrate the transformative power of 3D printing as means to action issues of sustainable housing that millions of people throughout the world face.
