Look and Feel
The large industrial 3D printer comes in black. The printer looks stylish and will easily blend in any workshop.
The printer measures 84.6 x 92.5 x 120.1 inches (2,150 x 2,350 x 3,050 mm) and weighs 551 lb. (250 kg).
Its spool holder is mounted inside.
Delta WASP 3MT Overview
The Delta Wasp 3MT is shipped disassembled. However, the assembly procedure is not complicated, even if you are a beginner. The printer has a large enclosed print area of Ø 1,000 x 1,200 mm and requires a minimum space of 18 x 8.2 x 11.8 ft for the assembly.
The Wasp 3MT is a sturdy machine made entirely of metal. This printer has efficient thermoplastic insulation and strong steel core belts. To start printing, you’ll need to feed the resin pellets in the automatic-feeding pellet tank, which also has a run-out sensor that will alert you in case the pellets are over before your print job is completed.
The industrial 3D printer has powerful extruders that can process both recycled and technical materials. The two extruders, the WASP Pellet extruder and the WASP Spitfire Red are designed for different jobs. Use the former for quick printing of large objects and the latter when you need accurate, high-quality filament prints.
The Delta WASP 3MT Industrial also has a print recovery resurrection system, which comes handy in case of a power outage when a print job is still on. There’s also a Free Zeta System that allows you to set the height from which you would like your model to be printed from.
You can also monitor your prints in real-time thanks to an integrated camera.
The large format professional 3D printer can be controlled remotely through a PC, tablet or smartphone using Wi-Fi. In case you encounter any problems with the printer, WASP technicians will be able to access it remotely through Wi-Fi to remedy the problem.
Delta WASP 3MT 3D Printer Features
The Deltawasp 3MT can print both pellet and filament. When printing pellets, the minimum layer height is 500 microns. On the other hand, when printing with filament, the industrial machine can print down to 100 microns.
The quality of the print is good but the finish is not as smooth as you will get with the best industrial 3D printers. However, the print quality and finishing is sufficient for manufacture of large industrial parts.
The maximum printing speed of the Deltawasp 3MT Industrial is 200m/s. When operating optimally, the printer reaches a maximum travel speed of 400 mm/s with an acceleration of 150 mm/s.
The printer has two extruders: the Wasp Pellet and the Wasp Spitfire Red. The diameter of the Pellet extruder nozzle is 3mm while that of the Spitfire Red is 1.2mm.
The Wasp 3MT is a delta-type printer with high print speed. During the printing process, there is very minimal vibration of the print bed. As a result, the printer produces high-quality models.
Delta Wasp 3MT Industrial 4.0 Materials
This industrial delta printer can handle both pellet and filament thermoplastics. The printer can work with PLA, ABS, PA, PP, TPU, PETG, among other materials.
The unit prints pellets of 2mm to 6mm in diameter and filaments of 1.75mm. Therefore, you can experiment with different materials to produce creative end products.
Delta Wasp 3MT Build Volume
The Deltawasp 3MT has a build volume of Ø 39.4 x 47.2 inches (Ø 1,000 x 1,200 mm. This is large enough for printing functional parts without the need for further assembly.
You can control the DeltaWasp 3D printer through the TFT touch Display. For distributed teams working in a workshop, the printer can be controlled through an existing Wi-Fi network.
You can print your 3D models from a computer or tablet over Wi-Fi. Alternatively, you can also print them through a USB stick.
The printer comes bundled with Simplify3D slider software. However, if you prefer using Slic3r or Cura, the printer is also compatible with them. The software runs on Windows, Linux and Mac.
Delta WASP 3MT 3D Printer Applications
The Delta WASP 3MT Industrial 4.0 3D printer has many real-world applications. For example, the printer was used to create a 3D printed scenography for “Fra Diavolo”, a theatrical performance showcased at the Rome Opera.
Also, it has been used to print Bikechairs (see image below). This is a postural furniture that is designed for passive gymnastics.
