Description of the printer
2 DESCRIPTION OF THE PRINTER
The device described in this manual is a printer intended for 3D printing using fluid-dense material.
The printer consists of an extruder with a screw mounted on a delta robot type structure and a work bed.
The material is put under pressure and pushed towards the extruder where it is dosed in a controlled manner by
a screw and poured through a nozzle that deposits very small quantities of material on the work bed.
The material is deposited by the head layer upon layer according to instructions on the file made with the use
of a slicing software. It is therefore possible to make any shape and any type of object within the limits of this
technology.

5.3. First start
After linking correctly the printer to the current it’s necessary to perform some operations so that the printer can
work.
Clamps on belts
Inside the printer there are three belts needed for moving the extruder during the print.
To avoid movements of the extruders during the transport, on the belts are set some clamps, to be removed
before the starting of the printer.
To perform the first print, proceed as described here:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Place the support of the tank aligned with the two holes on the top of the printer
Tighten the two screws in order to block the support
Turn on the printer with ON/OFF button on the back of the printer
Using the control handle select Menu>Prepare>Load material
Wait for the extruder to move in the middle of the printer
Grab the tank, with material loaded, and place it on the support
Connect the nylon pipe (8 mm diameter) in the right connector
Connect the PTFE pipe (12 mm diameter) in the right connector
Pressurize the tank by rotating the pressure control on the left side of the printer
Extrude the material with Menu>Extrude material
Zero the machine with Menu>Prepare>Autohome
Mesaure the distance between bed and nozzle with “Move axis”, then set it with Menu>Prepare>Modify
height (0.5 mm is the distance adviced between bed and nozzle)
Perform a manual leveling screwing or unscrewing the three regulation screws until reaching the necessary
planarity
Launch the print with Menu>SD Card> file.gcode

6 FIRST USE OF THE PRINTER
6.1. General warnings
The reading of this chapter assumes, in order to use the printer safely, the knowledge of the contents of paragraph
1.6 “General safety warnings”.
Furthermore, the specific requirements for safe interaction with the printer, related to this chapter, are detailed
in the following paragraphs.
ATTENTION:
The operations related to these activities must be performed by authorized and professionally
qualified personnel.
ATTENTION:
Pay particular attention during the various stages of the procedures, it is essential to wear gloves
because there is a risk of burns.
ATTENTION:
During operations, the operator must wear all the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
NOTE:
Inside the SD card supplied with the printer are provided:
• Free software for creating models to print
• Standard software configurations to be imported into the computer
• Sample file in “.gcode” format to be printed in 3D.

First use of the printer
6.2. Printing bed
NOTE: The printer has been designed to print directly on the working surface so that the machine
can be moved to proceed with new prints.
NOTE: Another option is printing directly on the bed of the printer. This bed needs to be calibrated
on the first use.
To improve the adhesion of the first layers different kinds of beds can be used.
The Manifacturer provides small discs in marine multilayered. Depending on the applications other
kinds of beds can be used. The Z axis value must be updated depending on the thickness of the bed.
6.3. First layer of the print
NOTE:
To make the adhesion of the first layer easier keep the distance with the bed at around 0.5 mm
ATTENTION:
Parts in movement. Moving parts can crush and cut.
Before proceeding with manual leveling, it is necessary to set Z max value, with:
• Menu>Modify height (select unit)
• Get close to the printing bed and confim the Z max value
With “Manual leveling” command it is possible to clibrate the planarity of the printing bed.
Screw or unscrew the three screws of regulation checking the distance between nozzle and bed.
By removing the bed of the printer it is possible to print directly on the table or other supports.
Gypsum discs are adviced.

First use of the printer
6.4. Loading of material
NOTE:
WASP provides a mixture to be fixed with water. The amount of water depends on the kind of
extruder, nozzle and environmental conditions. Normally it is possible to use the following recipe:
porcelaine 95%, water 5%. With the provided machine it is possible to print the majority of the
mixtures.
1. Lay the mixture on a clean surface.
2. Add water (5% water 95% mixture) and mix until total absorption. If the material feels too dry add
some water.
3. Subdivide the mixture in balls to be loaded inside the internal of the aluminum tank.
4. Untighten the handles on the cap of the aluminum tank (fig.1), then remove the base with the 4 bars
(the side without valve)(fig.2).
5. Bring the nylon piston to the bottom to load the material.
6. Insert and compress the various parts of material (fig.4).
7. Place and tighter the base using the handles (fig.5).

fig.4
fig.2
fig.5
NOTE:
Make sure before putting in pressure that the two caps are perfectly touching and fitting on the tank
in order to avoid air losses and failures. Make sure that the four handles are tighten well. Lubricate
periodically the threaded bars and the internal of the handles.

First use of the printer
ATTENTION:
During operations, the operator must wear all the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
6.5. First print
To perform the print proceed as described:
•
•
•
•
Turn on the compressor to the 8 bars.
Screw the manometer in clockwise sense until around 5/6 bars (the necessary pressure varies depending on
the consistency of the mixture ).
Extruder the material so Menu>Extrude material
Begin the print selecting: Menu>Sd Card Menu>file.gcode
The print will automatically start and it’s just necessary to wait until the end of the process.
As the process is completed the extrude will come back to its zero position.
ATTENTION:
Remove the part only the printing is done
NOTE:
In the case it’s necessary to interrupt the print during the printing phase there are two ways to
proceed.
• ON/OFF button: by clicking this button on the back of the machine the process will stop in the
safest way.
• Pause command: Menu>Pause, ideal for changing material an cleaning the nozzle
6.6. Free zeta system
Free Zeta system can recover a print by starting from a specified height
•
•
•
•
•
•
Measure the Z value of the last printed layer with:
Menu>Prepare>Muovi asse>10,1,0.1>Z axis
Get very close of the printed object and take note of the Z value, then:
Menu>Free Zeta System
Insert Z value
Select gcode
Wait for the file to load
The operation (depending on the height and file) can take several minutes.
6.7. Resurrection system
Resurrection System is a system for recovering the prints in case of blackout or sudden lack of current. It
automatically saver the coordinates in the point where the print stopped. To use this function select the voice
“Resurrection” for the main menu and wait for the printer to restart.

Unscrew the handles from CAP A and then removeCAP B (fig.24). To make easier CAP A removal use a
flat screwdriver as a lever.
Place the tank to the bottom.
With closed fist (o with the help of some tool) push the nylon piston to the external. (fig.25).
Clean the piston with water and place it back in the tank.
The remove the residual material that dried inside the TPFE pipe hit it delicately to allow the
