• Hey guys,

    after countless hours and multiple iterations, I would like to present to you the D-PATCH (Delta Printer with automatic tool changing). To my knowledge there is no Delta Printer available with tool-changing. I have been working on it for over 2 years (started in March 2018) and I am proud, that it is now a reality.

    As you can see it’s not completely finished yet, because the actual tool changer is missing, but is in the making. A prototype is existing already.

    Stats about the Printer:

    Print volume: 300x300mm

    Available tools: 5 (for now)

    Board: Duet 2 Wifi + Duex 5

    Power Supply: 24V 13A Meanwell

    Security: Circuit breaker + RCD +Emergency Stop

    Bed: milled aluminium bed with 600W mains heater switched with SSR

    Print surface: Magnetic bed

    Tool-Changing: Automatic and Manual

    Control: PanelDue

    I will updated the tread when I make more progress.

    I'm really curious about your opinions and please let me know if you have any questions.







  • Added a cover for the electronics compartment and fixed the bed. The bed sits on 1 Standoff and 2 Balls, so that the system is constraint but thermal expansion is allowed.


  • @taconite Nice work! I have no experience with Deltas but I'm definitely interested in how the tool changer works out.

  • FANTASTIC. I was thinking about going down this road...

    You've posted a lot of info and pics, and I will be looking at them very carefully, meanwhile TELL US MORE!!!

    This is incredible. Fantastic. Superlative. Nifty. I'm running out of words (at least without cheating on the web) and I hope I've conveyed just how cool this is.


    Now, to look at your pics!!

  • Would you be willing to post the tool macros?

  • @gtj0 thank you :), I will keep updating this post with news

    @Danal Thank you very much for your kind words. It feels good to hear, that people like it 🙂
    What else would you like to know?

    I have not completed the tool macros for this machine, yet but I can upload the ones for the prototype
