CSP (Centro Sviluppo Progetti) was founded in 2003 from a 10-year experience of founder Massimo Moretti gained in the world of electronics and mechanics. The company develops innovative projects: continuous research and state of the art are the cornerstones of a work that is based on the desire to leave a better world than one has found and on trust in the technology behind sustainable progress.
And that is how WASP (World’s Advanced Saving Project) was created in 2012. A project focused on developing 3D printing and that finds its roots in the world of Open-source, trying to give and put into circulation know-how and tools. WASP manufactures solid professional printers with the aim to encourage sustainable development and in-house production. These are the reasons that lead to continuous research on materials to be extruded, a road that led to ceramic and porcelain printing.
The first step in the group’s production history is the development of PowerWASP: a fast, economical and versatile 3D printer that mills wood and aluminium too. Equipped with a syringe, PowerWASP can also print ceramic mixtures.
Afterwards, the range of DeltaWASP printers was created, which meets the needs of 3D printing, from small to large. Fast and highly precise, they can execute a wide range of products. Thanks to the implementation of an extruder for printing ceramic materials, DeltaWASP is a real chance of working, a leap into the world of digital craft, with minimum energy consumption.
The revenue from the sale of solid printers is invested in the research and development of integrated projects aiming at a production revolution that could result in widespread prosperity. Research that advances hand in hand with eco-friendly, sustainable and functional materials and innovative systems. The projects so far realised by the group are 100% self-financed.
The aim of WASP is to build ‘zero-mile’ homes, using materials found on the surrounding area. A similar project requires that the machine be portable and features low energy consumption, since in large areas of the planet, there is no electricity at all. It must therefore be able to use renewable energies such as sun, wind and water. The six-meters-tall Big Delta that WASP has currently built can be assembled in about an hour by just three people and can be powered by a few meters of solar panels.
