3D printing in Ceramics & Clay

Bored of you old ceramic vase? With our clay 3D printing extensions you can 3D print in clay/ceramics. In the WASP Hub in Umeå we have 2 machines for 3D printing in clay/ceramics and we can print up to a maximum size of 90x90x90 cm.

The WASP Hubs network we can provide you with technical support and education around 3D printing and modelling. Contact us via contact@wasphubumea.se!

3D printing in wood

We experiment in 3D printing with wood (around 80% wood) and last year we printed the largest object in world with this high wood concentration. We have 1 machine for 3D printing in wood and we can print up to a maximum size of 90x90x90 cm.

Our courses focus on different 3D printing materials and take you step by step through the stages of the 3D print process. We also give 3D printing courses in collaboration with Folkuniversitet Umeå, check their website.

World record 3D printing in wood

The world’s largest 3D printed wooden object, 100% biodegradable, realised by RISE, in Umeå.

"Wood is one of Sweden’s biggest and most important resources. In the processes between the forest and the wood planks, buildings, furniture and paper that we use, a lot of side stream material such as wood flour is generated. Today, these side streams are often used for energy when, in fact, they could be put in much better use. Together with WASP, the manufacturers of the 3D printers we use, we collaborate to become pioneers in the research and applications of these ‘useful’ side streams. The mixture used for 3D printing contains besides wood flour only natural ingredients which makes the final product 100% biodegrad- able,” said Dina Dedic, Director of the Biomaterial Scale Up Center (BISC) at RISE Bioeconomy.

The WASP experience

Excited to change the world with the help of additive manufacturing technology? WASP Hub Umeå is the first 3D printing WASP Hub facility and community in Sweden and the Nordics (Norway, Sweden and Finland). WASP Hub Umeå has 12 brother and sister Hubs spread over the world, to name a few locations Madrid, New York, Beirut, Barcelona, London and Milan! WASP Hub is an initiative of WASP (World’s Advanced Saving Project) who develop materials, procedures and technologies to serve and promote collective wellbeing within the areas: food, health, home, energy, work & education. RISE Interactive Umeå is the host of this WASP Hub, established through a collaboration with WASP in Italy.
