The world’s largest delta 3D printer - standing at 12 meters tall - is no longer just a research project but it is now a reality, entirely made in Italy!

The team behind this project is WASP, a Ravenna based enterprise, leader in the world of 3D printing.

The Group’s inspiration shines through its name, an acronym that stands for "World’s Advanced Saving Project". BigDelta - this is the name of the giant 3D printer -  will be presented during a three day rally event, along with workshops, conferences, concerts and shows that will liven up the final unraveling of this dream.

 

 

In the center of this wide open outdoor scenery, the giant BigDelta 3D printer will make its official debut.

“Reality of dream” is the name of the three day rally that will see philosophical reasoning meet technology and sustainable progress to permeate all activities during the course of the event. There will also be a space for the arts: BigDelta will become the stage and scenography for the theatrical Shamballa show, presented at the Rigodon Theatre, written and directed by Alessandro Cavoli.

Three days of innovation and sharing, from today to the September 20th, and who knows? Maybe they will be remembered as the dates for the beginning of a real revolution.

 

Building BigDelta is much more than a dream come true if we consider that , by 2030, international estimates foresee a rapid growth of adequate housing requirements for over 4 billion people living with yearly income below $3,000. The United Nations calculated that over the next 15 years there will be an average daily requirement of 100.000 new housing units to meet this demand.
