Here on Geeky Gadgets we have featured a number of 3D printers that offer users a large 3D printing volume, however a new Delta 3D printer take first prize for size and has been constructed to 3D print houses and stands 12m tall.
Created by WASP (World’s Advanced Saving Project) their latest 3D printing system aptly named the BigDelta, takes the form of the world’s largest Delta 3D printer, and will be on show next week at Massa Lombarda in Italy from September 18-20th.
WASP explains a little more about the huge construction.
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. We’re dreamers, we’re Makers: we start from 3D printing to save the world.
For more details of the BigDelta 3D printer jump over the official WASP website and also check out the video below to see smaller scale 3D printers in action that were the basis for the huge BigDelta project.
