Our History

The first step in the group’s production history is the development of PowerWASP: a fast, economical and versatile 3D printer that mills wood and aluminium too. Equipped with a syringe, PowerWASP can also print ceramic mixtures.

Afterwards, the range of 3d Delta WASP Printers was created, which meets the needs of 3D printing, from small to large. Fast and highly precise, they can execute a wide range of products. Thanks to the implementation of an extruder for printing ceramic materials, LDM WASP Extruder, DeltaWASP is a real chance of working, a leap into the world of digital craft, with minimum energy consumption.

In 2015 is realized the BigDelta, a 12m high giant printer to build homes, thanks to a complex research that has seen us convolti in the last three years.

In 2016 Wasp released Maker Economy Starter Kit, a giant construction system in architectural scale enclosed in a single container, which gives shape to a large, mobile technology park dedicated to 3D printing.

In 2018 Wasp released Crane WASP, the infinite 3d printer, a collaborative 3d printing system able to print Houses.

Vision

3D printing is WASP’s heart since a small and fast printer that materialises objects made of bio-plastic, clay, silicone and biocompatible materials, which mills wood and aluminium, makes it easy to start mini-productions and to create what you need by yourself.

The revenue from the sale of solid printers is invested in the research and development of integrated projects aiming at a production revolution that could result in widespread prosperity. Research that advances hand in hand with eco-friendly, sustainable and functional materials and innovative systems. The projects so far realised by the group are 100% self-financed.

The aim of WASP is to build ‘zero-mile’ homes, using materials found on the surrounding area. A similar project requires that the machine be portable and features low energy consumption, since in large areas of the planet, there is no electricity at all. It must therefore be able to use renewable energies such as sun, wind and water.

HouseArt and CultureEnergyDigital Fabrication, Health and Food are the themes that we are developing in the form of concrete projects with our 3D Printers.

Our Manifesto

The power of money and finance is based on the monopoly of production capacity; the WASP project works to make it public, with a perspective of equal opportunities and equal knowledge, to free creativity and boost economy from the bottom.

The challenge then is to give everyone the chance to make their objects by downloading the project from the network or making their own. In this way a new concept of production is born, which reduces shipping costs and drastically reduces material wastage, thus slowing the increase of waste to be disposed of.

The Earth’s resources are not enough to support the existing population explosion and to change the growth models is no longer an option but rather an urgent need.

It is within this context that the WASP dream is found: print a healthy, beautiful and human-scale home with a cost that tends to be null.Inspired by the technique of mason wasps, the symbol of the group, the research is aimed at building a 3D printer to make clay houses. Earth is available everywhere in the world; it is cheap and easily malleable. Combined with other ‘zero-mile’ local materials, clay can create printed buildings that last in time, that adapt to the territory and that do not leave ruins behind once no longer used.

The possibility of a home for all is an essential building block to the creation of a horizon of equality and meritocracy, shared prosperity, the horizon toward which WASP projects converge.

  • Everything is mind, everything is change, reality is the result of shared thoughts. WASP project is a humanistic experiment: sailing between art and science, economy and politics, we plan sustainable models and systems, sharing our vision.
  • Nowadays who's rich has more opportunities. This state of things leads to monopolies and social inequity which infect life quality. WASP project wants to give an economical value to knowledge, commitment and sharing independently of social and economic classes, with a perspective of equal opportunity and meritocracy.
  • Our planet resources aren't sufficient for the current demographic explosion, so we need to change our development models. WASP project studies, realizes and sponsors eco-friendly systems.
  • The house is a primary need and a right, WASP project suggests a process to realize houses with a very low price; we are self-founding the project evolution by selling our developed systems.
  • Power of money and finance are based on the monopoly of industrial production, WASP project works to let people produce what they need.
  • Once everyone is going to be able to build what they imagine, propriety and poverty will belong to the past. WASP project spreads knowledge and systems to give shape to ideas.
  • WASP project works to realize and diffuse the most advanced technologies and let everyone use them; equal opportunities to free creativity and relaunch the (new) economy from the bottom.
