Clean and elegant DeltaMaker personal 3D printer

DeltaBot

For those who haven’t seen the various Rostock / Delta Robot projects that have been popping up in the 3D printing world lately, here are some gorgeous photos from the DeltaMaker project.

From 3ders.org.

DeltaMaker is a clean looking personal 3D printer built on a delta robot platform. It has a rigid aluminum extrusion construction. The delta robot was invented by a team led by Reymond Clavel in the early 1980’s. Because of the speed and precision with which delta robots can operate, the technology proved a significant success, powering industrial machines of all kinds.

The delta robot design, with three sets of parallel arms connected to a central platform, enables printing of objects at high resolution without the speed limitations imposed by traditional 3D printer designs. Unlike a traditional X, Y, Z axis control system, no motor is specifically tied to a single axis.

DeltaMaker prototype uses MakerSlide open source linear bearing system and QU-BD hot end. A custom high-performance filament drive system and a Bowden tube are added for delivering the filament to the extrusion head.

  1. It would have been a lot better if they had credited the Deltabot development group (https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/deltabot/vvvLFaBtChE) or Johann – whose firmware I’m sure they are running, without being prompted. More importantly, as John O of SeeMeCNC pointed out, they have not answered the question of when and where they will be publishing the designs – it is after all built on a LOT of Open Sourced projects.
