Another disadvantage of smooth rods is that the frame formed by the rods is not stiff enough and can twist unless braced with wood or metal supporting framework. Thus to get the frame stiff enough to remove flexing, you end up with a much bulkier frame with more material. org/wiki/Helium_Frog_Delta_Robot. 53 Chapter 2 ■ Delta Printer Hardware Linear Rails Linear rails are much more rigid than smooth rods. Linear rails use a thick 15×10mm steel bar with grooves milled on each side. A carrier is mounted on the rail, suspended by a set of steel ball bearings (most use recirculating arrangements, but some versions use linear ball bearings).

Always have a fire extinguisher nearby when working with flammable liquids. Cartesian vs. Delta Printers If you haven’t seen, used, or owned a 3D printer, you may not be aware that there are distinct differences between a delta printer and other Cartesian 3D printers. There are several designs of 3D printers other than Cartesian and delta, but I will compare Cartesian and delta prints since these form the vast majority of designs used today. Aside from the vertical orientation of all the axes, the most noticeable difference between Cartesian and delta printers is that the Cartesian printer has a rectangular build volume and the delta has a cylindrical build volume.

Anatomy of a Delta Printer In this section, I explore the components that make up a delta printer from the perspective of how the components work as part of the whole. I will discuss the hardware that makes up these components in the next section. Knowing how the components work will give a much better insight on how the printer is constructed. Not only will this help you understand your printer better, but it can also help you should you decide to build your own delta printer. 1 2 Some earlier firmware did not support delta printers.
