Largest 3D printer in the wold

Big Delta is the largest 3D printer in the world with a height of 12 meters. It will create clay houses. 3D printers are growing every week, but it's just mind blowing.

World's Advanced Saving Project

Earlier this week, 3D printing specialists WASP (World's Advanced Saving Project) announced that they would propose a 3D printer 12 meters high. Once it is built, the Big Dela will be the largest 3D printer on the planet. 3D printer of this size can build many things. But these designers have said it is specially designed to provide cheap houses. The concept is to use local materials such as earth or clay and build the house with an energy below 100 watts.

With a metal frame of 6 meters and a print stream that also functions as a mixer, the project WASP is a real mammoth in 3D printing. Considering these characteristics, Big Delta is perfectly suited to quickly build houses in areas affected by natural disasters.

providing a housing solution 

 But in addition to providing a housing solution in a crisis, WASP said Big Delta could also be used to provide cheap houses in densely populated areas. The United Nations estimates that the world needs 100,000 new houses per day for the next 15 years to cope with rapid population growth and the concentration of people in large cities. But WASP goes further by saying that in 2030, 4 billion people will need housing while their annual income is 3,000 dollars. And this Big Dela 3D printer can help in this housing crisis. WASP is planning to unveil its revolutionary 3D printer during this weekend to prove its performance. It is not known the price of a house and maintenance of this printer, but this type of project is always interesting. There is a trend of increasingly strong to use 3D printing to create whole houses. Chinese had also proposed a solution that allowed to print a 3D house in 24 hours.

Helicopter and metal market in China

After unveiling a helicopter version of its Pro Line Fusion avionics suite at Heli Expo in Orlando (Florida) in March, Rockwell Collins is heading for China and specifically the China Helicopter Exposition lounge whose third edition is about to opened in Tianjin on 9 September.
The US supplier confirms its will to find new platforms in the rotorcraft industry for this avionics, which was chosen so far to equip mainly business aircraft.

Main value :

  • Aluminum was worth 1,622.50 dollars per tonne, against 1569.50 dollars.
  • Lead was worth 1.685 dollars per ton, against 1687.50 dollars.
  • Tin was worth 15,105 dollars per tonne, against 14,125 dollars.
  • Nickel was worth 9825 dollars per ton, against 9955 dollars.
  • Zinc was worth 1793 dollars per ton, against 1804 dollars.

Rockwell Collins

Rockwell Collins will present the Chinese living a demonstrator allowing vistors to "steal" on a helicopter equipped with the new avionics suite.
Pro Line Fusion includes graphical interfaces, intuitive icons and reconfigurable multi-function windows. It allows to reduce pilot workload to keep them focused on the task regardless of the flight conditions.
Note also that certification this summer by the FAA of the Pro Line Fusion biturboprop on the Beechcraft King Air 250 mark, Rockwell Collins, the first use of a touch screen at the PFD (primary flight display) of a commercial aircraft.
Prices of base metals traded on the London Metal Exchange (LME) have offered some respite, taking advantage of the closure of Chinese places to resume after plummeting last week.

First ballasted by disappointing economic indicators from China earlier this week, reviving concerns about the slowdown in the global economy and second largest base metal consumer in the world, the prices of industrial metals are then recovered slightly .

Investors were expecting a quiet week in the absence of Chinese operators, last week after trying for their nerves when the price of copper and aluminum had plunged to new lows in six years.

Chinese markets

Chinese markets were indeed closed Thursday and Friday because of the commemorations of the 70th anniversary of the Japanese surrender.

Yet "the basic metals market was more active than expected considering the absence of Chinese markets," noted analysts at Standard ICBC and the price of copper, nickel and aluminum in particular took the opportunity to recover. "It will be interesting to see how the markets react to China (the increase) and if the momentum can be maintained", they tempered, however.

The recovery remains fragile copper

Copper prices reached their highest level since Thursday August 11, 5314 in dollars per tonne. But the foundations for a sustainable recovery of the red metal have yet to strengthen.

"A rise in copper inventories suggests that physical demand for this metal is currently quite low," said Caroline Bain, an analyst at Capital Economics. At the end of August, copper stocks stored in the warehouses of LME soared to their highest level in a year and a half, to 371,000 tons.

Slowdown of China 

Moreover, the slowdown in the real estate sector continues to weigh on copper, according to several analysts, although they expect that the measures taken by the Chinese government to stimulate the economy are beginning to have the effect on the demand for this metal.
Finally, with only 32,000 tons of production "lost" in August, the copper production on disturbances are actually rarer last month compared to July where supply in Zambia, Chile was particularly slow, according to Barclays.

Aluminium in China

Aluminum remains ballasted by a supply glut The price of aluminum rose Thursday to their highest level since the end of July, to 1,641 dollars per tonne while operators cautiously returning to the market.
These days trade volumes have increased and exceeded the average of the past year, while prices stabilized and gained ground as Leon Westgate, an analyst at Standard ICBC.
But the market remains oversupplied and this should continue to weigh down short-term courses while global demand has increased. "Before it becomes clear that producers will decrease their production, a significant rise in price of gold seems unlikely," concluded Ms. Bain. In turn, the price of lead reached 1.744 dollars per ton Wednesday, its highest level in almost two weeks. The price of tin and zinc are mounted at a maximum since mid-August, respectively 15,365 dollars per tonne and dollars per tonne 1842.
On the LME, copper tonne for delivery in three months traded at 5.161 dollars Friday at 12:20 GMT, against 5086.50 dollars the previous Friday at 11:15 GMT.
