Example text

A delta printer, however, uses very small movements for all three axes in order to move to a specific location on the X-, Y-, and Z-planes. A Cartesian printer allows movement of a single axis without affecting the movement of the other axes. That is, you can move the X axis from one position to another without changing the Y or Z axis. A delta printer would have to change all three axes in order to reposition on the X axis alone (or the Y axis). 27 Chapter 1 ■ Introduction to Delta 3D Printers This is because each axis on a delta printer can only move in the vertical direction.

Other reasons include wanting to build a 3D printer with specific unique features or you want to be able to upgrade the printer in the future. If you want to embark on a build option, you should plan to spend anywhere from a single afternoon (for some assembly-required kits) to about 40 to 60 hours or more for a built-from-scratch delta printer. Although this estimate may seem very high (and some would say it is), realistically you should anticipate it taking more than a long weekend to complete—and that’s if you have all the parts and they all work!

Bearings can be made from plastic, oil-infused bronze, or special ball bearings (called linear bearings). Still others use a special rail with recirculating ball bearings. This is called a linear rail. Movement of the axis is accomplished with an electric motor and either a belt or a cable. I will explain each example mechanism in the forthcoming sections. Whichever mechanism is used to move the axis, the geometry of that mechanism must be known and entered into the firmware. For example, the size of the drive pulley (the one mounted on the electric motor) and the number of teeth per millimeter of the belt are critical for determining how far the firmware must turn the motor to move the axis a fraction of a millimeter.
