In this video we’re taking a look at the Orion Delta 3D Printer from SeeMeCNC.
We’ll take a look at build volume, calibration and some test prints using ABS, Nylon and PLA.
If you’re looking for a 3D printer with high quality, fast speeds, big build volume and small footprint – Orion delta is a great machine!

The ORION™ Delta 3D Printer is an exciting and attractive new 3D printer from the folks at SeeMe CNC that’s designed to print ABS, PLA, and other materials from the very beginning. There’s no need to refine or do anything to your printer – so you really have a ton more options for material than you usually do with an unmodified 3D printer.
There’s also an up-front LCD panel so you can see your printing status and an on-board SD card to store up to 4GB of files. The printer runs with high speed positioning (up to 300mm/s) with high precision at 50 micron accuracy.
This printer doesn’t require much set up or configuration and you can basically start printing right out of the box. Comes with a 0.5mm nozzle and includes a 1lb spool of PLA filament. And if you need more, we carry a wide variety of filament here.
There are lots more specs in the tech details below but we’re really into this 3D printer for its unique design and usability. This is the black version of the Orion Delta.
