Additively manufactured parts of the WISA Woodsat
In this photo are some of the 3D printed parts for the camera booms (selfie sticks) and lower structures for the @wisawoodsat Flight Model and Engineering and Qualification Model just after being taken out of the additive manufacturing machine at Delva, one of our partners.

Delva is participating in this week Alihankinta subcontracting fair in Tampere, and tomorrow, on Tuesday 21 September 2021 at 13:00 EEST our chief designer Samuli Nyman and Bruce Clayhills will talk about the WISA Woodsat nanosatellite as Delva’s guest at Hämeenlinna’s joint stand C-220.

Meet the teams, see a satellite mock-up, and of course look at the Huld designed & Delva printed selfie stick that is needed for looking at the plywood surface in space!

Metal 3D printing was the manufacturing method chosen for the parts of the extendable selfie stick because it requires very little metal and makes making complex, high-quality structures possible.

By printing the satellite’s metal parts, is the scrap material reduced to about one percent. In comparison, the number would have been about 95% with traditional methods.

After being printed by Delva, the parts are post-processed by Porin Metallisorvaamo Nurmilo Oy.
