UVW Cartesian axes available for delta setups

  • I currently have a delta configuration 3D printer and I am attempting to add extra rotational axes to the machine, independent of the delta head. Currently the UVW axes seem to be unusable when configured for delta printing. My request is to enable the UVW axes for independent operation while the printer is configured as a delta system.

    If this is either not possible to do, or would be difficult to implement, what are my options for a work around using current firmware? I can use the stepper motors for the new axes as tools, and switch between the extruder and these new axes, but that seems inelegant. Is there a better way to do it?
