Confindustria-Ravenna visits WASP

Company visit in WASP to present Shamballa, the new Technological Village of Massa Lombarda, an eco-friendly village that will be an important research station focused on 3D printing.

After the first meeting in Confindustria, when Massimo Moretti spoke about the Big Delta WASP, the 12-metres-high 3D printer, and showed the Delta WASP 2040 (a smaller 3D printer) describing how the project was born.

The event has been organized by Romagna Executive Education, the business school of Sestante and Confindustria Ravenna.


Flower Artist

Vases designed by flowers. It's the original project by Gianluca Pugliese, a maker that has collaborated with WASP for many years.

(You can find more information about the previous project - Light Extruder - here).

Flower Artist, quando la tecnologia fa della natura un'artista

Gianluca says: "The name of my project is Flower Artist, the concept is simple flowers design their own vases. You have a vase with a flower, with an Arduino and some sensors (for humidity, temperature, light, fluid level...) you can measure the plant values in a particular moment; the computer model the vase depending on that values. Light defines the high of the vase, humidity the width, ecc."

 

 

The project has been exposed during the Fair in Madrid. During the event Felipe VI, King of Spain, Juan Carlos I, King Emeritus and Manuela Carmena, Mayor of Madrid visited the stand.

WASP’S BIGDELTA RETURNS

The huge 3D printer will be the heart of a technological village rising up in Massa Lombarda in partnership with the Municipality

big-delta-wasp-

It’s Rising up a technological village dedicated to 3D printing, the heart of this project is the 12-metres-high printer BigDelta WASP. It happens in Massa Lombarda (Ravenna) thanks to a partnership between CSP srl (Centro Sviluppo Progetti – WASProject) and the Municipality that has made available a green area in the industrial zone of the town, in Cooperazione road.

Tuesday March 22th, the Mayor Daniele Bassi and the CSP Business Owner Massimo Moretti, are going to sign the agreement. Works will start at the beginning of next April.

WASP, leader in 3D printing technology, with the goal to disseminate the current state of its technology wants to build an eco-friendly village with low energy consumption. Therefore, Massa Lombarda is going to become an important Technology Experimentation Centre dedicated to 3D printing, a unique case in Italy and maybe in the World.

Massa Lombarda has always been a district interested in innovation – says the Mayor Daniele Bassi – the important agreement we signed today proves that the cohesion of energy, allegiance and creativity between the Municipality and a capable Entreprenuer like Massimo Moretti, it’s a crucial element of development for our city and the youth who we want to guarantee an adequate future commensurate to their hope”.

We decided to name the technological village Shamballa – says Moretti – from the name of the mythological place that symbolizes the city of peace, tranquility and happiness. A city quoted in a lot of cultural documents for its spirituality and technical advance. House, Food, Employment, Healthcare and Wellness are the basic human necessities of life – continues Moretti – In our Shamballa we’ll print houses and vertical vegetable gardens of different sizes. There will also be a laboratory for compact desktop printer to make objects (fornitures, biomedical, jewellery, ceramics). Thanks to the collaboration with some artists we are developping a cultural project”.

It’ll be the realization of the Maker Economy, the WASP idea of a sustainable economy, a new economical model where everything is selfmade and nobody depends on monopolistic companies. Quick exportable, it would be suitable for places where there is no productive potential or well-functioning infrastructures. Wasp is interested in taking care of World’s poorest country.

The BigDelta was shown for the first time during the meeting La realtà del sogno, happened in Massa Lombarda where more then a thousand people took part from 18 to 20 September 2015. In October 2015 the huge printer was bringed to Rome at Maker Faire 2015, where obtained a positive outcome. Inactive for some months because of the climate, now the BigDelta returns to work in a permanent location. The agreement signed today will last three years and is renewable.
