Delta Printers

by RepRap
83% Recommended


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.

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.

Ouverture du carton (bien emballée) pas de notice et aucune indication pour la trouver (uniquement en anglais). L'alimentation ne fonctionnait pas en puissance puis la carte mère a cramé et le SAV est inexistant, ça marche mieux depuis que j'ai mis une Ramps. Avec bien du mal, maintenant les impressions sont plutôt belles.

Anycubic Kossel Delta Plus

A solid printer that gives good quality prints with the convenience of opensource design and software.

For anyone new to 3D printing then I wouldn't recommend a Delta printer as they are a lot more difficult to setup. If you are familiar with printing then the Anycubic Deltas are well priced and you have a large community for support and customisation. Prints tend to be faster with a Delta but can suffer from stringing due to using a Bowden tube to keep weight down rather than feeding filament directly to the extruder.  Simple design, cheap spares, reliable prints (once setup properly).
