Delta Wasp 2040 Clay
The Wasp factory has now re-opened.
As all Wasp printers are built to order, we can accept orders though build times will be a week or two longer than those quoted on the product pages while the factory catches up with back orders. Delivery dates will be given at time of order placement.
Delta Wasp 2040 Clay
The Delta WASP 2040 Clay is a unique and fast delta Clay 3D printer. This 3D printer prints clay and other dense materials with speeds of up to 150mm/s, and can print highly detailed objects with layer heights down to 0.5 mm. The delta configuration maximises the build volume while minimising the space required on the desk.
Clay Only Model
The Delta WASP 2040 Clay 3D printer cannot be used with plastic solutions, only ceramic. This printer is designed to work specially with dense fluid materials such as clay, extruding it to create pieces of the highest quality. If you want to be able to print plastic and clay then the original Delta WASP 2040 Pro comes fitted with a plastic extruder and a separate clay extruder option so you can switch between printing plastics and ceramics.
The Delta WASP 2040 Clay 3D Printer has an extruder pressure chamber mounted into the machine so that you only need to provide compressed air to get an integrated clay solution. The print platform has an adjustable sliding-system on bearings that guarantee excellent stability. In addition it has an open frame for better access, which is beneficial for clay modelling.
*When printing with dense materials on clay 3D printers, you will need to use an air compressor to get rid of all the air bubbles in the material tank, this is so the mixture can flow through the extruder smoothly without any breaks. You can use any EU specified air compressor with 3.5 - 5.5 bar pressure, which you can get online or at a hardware store. The printer comes with a pressure gauge and all fittings included to connect the air compressor to the tank.
Delta Geometric System
Other FDM 3D printers work on the Cartesian System providing an x, y, and zed axis. The Delta WASP 2040 Clay uses the Delta Geometric System, which consists of 3 main arms connecting to the extruder, which move up and down independently. The position of the extruder is calculated by using trigonometric functions. This results in the printed product being more precise as inertia is inherently lower.
Suspended Cushioned Bowden System
The inertia surrounding the extruder can cause inaccuracy in 3D prints. WASP developed the Suspended Bowden System on the Delta WASP 2040 Clay Line to further disperse the inertia onto hanging elastic 'gantries', which have improved the printing the speed and quality.
The Delta WASP 2040 Clay features the Wasp signature Resurrection System, which is an auto-save and back up feature created by WASP’s engineers, allowing you to stop 3D printing before completion and continue hours, days or weeks later from where you left off. The need to stop or interrupt print production and to get it back to it in the future at the same point where it was left inspired WASP to evolve the function of “stop and save” i.e. Resurrection.
Free Zed System
As well as a resurrection system, the Delta WASP 2040 Clay 3D Printer also has the Free Zed System, a new and different solution to recovering prints. The Free Zed System can recover prints where it is not possible to use the resurrection function, or if after you have your print has been resurrected, the print is not to standard and needs to be reprinted.
User Friendly Interface
The Delta WASP 2040 Clay offers a new 32 bit industrial quality proprietary board for improved speed, an LCD Display, built-in Wi-Fi and SD Card compatibility. It is also compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. File extensions include: .stl, .gcode, .obj.
