Delta Printers

Description

Delta printers use a different motion platform for the typical rectangular printers you might normally see. They instead use 3 vertical towers to create a prism shape. This comes with the advantage of higher speeds and better print quality in some cases, but they generally come with smaller build volumes and can be difficult to calibrate.

Micromake DIY delta printer

If you have a tinkering nature and are mechanically inclined, this is a great 3d printer for you. Purchase an entire kit from $250 -$800 usd (plus S&H, customs) and assemble yourself . print area of 180mm x 180mm x 300mm. runs on a 12v power supply.Thanks to the design your build plate is stationary and only the print head moves, putting less strain on your stepper motors, requiring less power. Excellent quality prints at an efficient price! Micromake delta printer files can be downloaded  @   https://pinshape.com/items/540...

RepRap Kossel Mini

Goes really fast and quality is great.  

Limiting factor is size.  Also I don't have heated bed so I'm stuck with PLA.

Good pretty and cheap

For a price much lower than any other 3D printer, this printer have high quality, easy to assemble. The downside is the leveling, to perform automatic leveling is not well, you need to make manual adjustments. Once the adjustments made can be printed without problems.

It's kind of hard to rate a custom Delta because its success will depend on the materials and the build.

I've built 2 delta printers, one based off of the Rostock that is modified, and one that is a full custom delta printer with all metal parts, and has a bed of 360mm. 

Their success is based off of the parts that are used, but in general delta machines respond well to 32-bit boards and higher microstepping. So if you get one, plan on switching to one of the 32-bit board options because you will see a huge jump in your print quality. 

Delta's do take up more room than a cartesian of the same build area, but they offer a large Z-height, so you do not have to worry about taller prints fitting. 

I highly recommend me them if: they are built well, use the correct software, and are or will be using 32-bit boards.

Delta Printers

I prefer the Delta style (fixed bed) printers over those with movable beds. I have compared the two styles and found that delta style printers produce a more accurate model. I have used 3D printers at work, school and at home.

AnyCubic Kossel Linear Plus

Great kit to start out with from Anycubic! Not for someone who does not like to tinker though. 

We decided to update the firmware with Marlin 1.8.1 as we could not find the original files from Anycubic in order to make simple changes to the firmware. We found a great version of the Delta software for the Anycubic on Thingiverse. Build quality is great for the price aside from the metal shavings on the aluminum bars (no big deal just be prepared) It is a kit.  Customer service is excellent, we had a small fan go out and they replaced it promptly.
