Getting to know... WASP: Italian 3D Printing Innovation!

World’s Advanced Saving Project (WASP) in Massa Lombarda (Ravenna- Italy) designs, produces, and sells 3D printers made in Italy worldwide. 

Inspired by the Potter Wasp, which builds its own nest with material recovered from the surrounding environment, WASP was born to develop large-scale 3D printers to build houses with natural materials available on the territory. The wide range of WASP 3D printers has been developed to answer human needs: food, housing, health, energy, work, art, and culture. 

In this interview, Shapediver covers the fundamental aspects of WASP's journey, such as the company's origins and its team, to the practical applications of their technology across industries. It also explores the functionalities of their online configurators, including their capabilities for users to export G-code compatible with DeltaWASP printers. The decision to use Grasshopper and ShapeDiver sheds light on how these tools enhance the user experience and open up new design possibilities.
