3D Delta printer designed for robustness and accuracy of the moving parts. A kit with manufactured sheetmetal and machined parts, powered by a smoothie board with industrial bearings.
Fused filament fabrication (FFF)
PLA, ABS, Nylon, etc any material with extrusion temperature up to 300C except flexible filament (new extruder and hot end platform to print such materials coming soon)
270 diameter x 300mm height (diameter varies depending on single or dual hot ends)
0.1 to 0.4mm
Travel speeds of 500mm/s and print speeds up to 300mm/s.
Anodised aluminium, 304 stainless steel, pla printed parts
Robust metal construction with some printed parts.
Preloaded ball raced vertical slides to eliminate any adjustment required and play. Igus rod ends and industrial bearings.
Smoothie board 5xc, capable of dual extruders, with GLCD graphic controller
24VDC @ 500w and 12VDC @ 15w
USB and ethernet
Aluminum heated bed with FSR levelling. Auto levelling of the bed using calibration functions built into the smoothie board
Interchangeable End Effector:
Interchangeable end effector, currently with a single hot end, further developments such as dual extruder, chocolate printer and ceramic printer. 12 way plug and socket for easy swap between different end effectors.
