If 3D-printing technology wasn’t already breaking boundaries all over the world, the World’s Advanced Saving Project is trying to break them. The project, a spin-off of Italian organization Centro Sviluppo Progetti (CSP) has become a reality. WASP’s delta 3d printer will be unveiled this weekend, standing at 40-feet-tall, making is the world’s largest to date.

Not only is the BigDelta printer enormous, but it will be able to print low-cost homes and contribute to a self-manufacturing society.

According to a company press release, “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.”

Only a year ago the company revealed its smaller model (15 feet tall) and now it has completed and is prepared to show off the skills of its newest and largest model that will be able to print in clay and mud, offering an almost no-cost solution to affordable housing.

“We demonstrated that ours was not just a dream, that low cost housing is possible and that houses can be built with a 3D printer. And we also developed a model for sustainability,” said WASP’s founder Massimo Moretti in a press conference.
