Does anyone have a delta printer at home and can share some experiences or comparisons with cartesian printers?

"Does anyone here have a delta printer at home?" by cotty » January 12th, 2015, 2:49 pm

Well I don't know if any one here dose. I will speaking out for myself and I say no that because I dont have one.

"and can share some experiences or comparisons with cartesian printers?"

comparisons:

I don,t think they use as many parts

I think they uses pullys and small cirvo motors instead of gears and gears belts

cartesian printer prints by xy then z

polor printer print xyz all the time.

But I think they both build in on a flat layer by layer cartesian.

Polor printer they can print taller objects easier with less weight per inch of frame.

I just speak off my head. I will have to do some homework on this, on youTub.

I will get back to you later with more scoup by internet info

Great question - Cotty

3D delta printers is #3 in Aug 2014 report.
Why A Delta printer? - Build a 3D Printer. builda3dprinter.eu|
"Delta’s usually are generally better in building higher objects like for instance a vase because the buildplatform is fixed. They tend to be higher anyway which creates a bigger buildvolume. Because of the way they are build it is also fairly easy to make them bigger (in width but certainly in height). The overall construction is much less complicated and uses less parts reducing maintenance and costs.
There is one downside though. Because of the arm construction it must be a lot taller than your build volume"

"Delta robots have popular usage in picking and packaging in factories because they can be quite fast, some executing up to 300 picks per minute"

I have a Rostock Max V2 from SeeMeCNC that I build from a kit. It is a truly great machine- very fast and accurate within its class and unparalleled build volume. The drive train is comprised of 3 NEMA 17's and g2 timing belts. The extruder is a Bowden style to save on weight and facilitate its very fast travel speeds (300mm/s). Its especially good for tall objects, but I've had great success with all kinds of shapes. Its all open source, based on this rep rap branch http://reprap.org/wiki/Rostock. As such it is highly modifiable; a lot of people use magnetic joints and hot ends from E3D. I'm still running mine all stock.

these guys make delta that has a purported (1000 mm/s travel speed) :ecstatic:

Thus: delta printer should be faster then x,y because of no starting and stoping

also you can check for error faster by finding open loops I would think?

Hey since you have a delta printer please check in and tell us more.

@revelever:
Thank you for the infos. I would love to see some pictures of printed parts, do you have some which you can share?

@cotty @dukejazz
Yes I do!. Ill try and up load some later today. And infact I am going to be printing a large part soon that some folks on this forum helped me (learn to) slice up that should showcase some of the rostocks strengths. I'll keep you posted either here or in another thread.
