As previously reported here on Geeky Gadgets, WASP the World’s Advanced Saving Project has now completed construction of the BigDelta 3D printer, which is currently the world’s largest and is capable of 3D printing structures 40 feet high.
The BigDelta project has been created to 3D print emergency housing, and now the external framework has now been fully constructed awaiting the addition of the positional motors, print nozzle and feed.
Watch the brief one minute video below to see the scale of this endeavour to create the world’s largest 3D printer. As soon as any more footage is released of the 3D printer in action we will keep you updated as always.
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.
