    Impressive! What motors are you using?

    Your print quality may be limited by the long Bowden tube. However, I recently implemented support for additional towers on delta printers. As you have a hexagonal frame, you could mount the extruder drive on an additional driven carriage running on a rail on one of the unoccupied vertical extrusions, so that the extruder drive on the carriage maintains a constant distance from the centre of the effector. This would allow you to use a shorter Bowden tube between the extruder and the effector.

  • Fantastic! I love seeing these big deltas. Congratulations, a very slick looking, and no doubt working, printer.

  • I'll have to print one and then I'll upload an image

  • @dc42 I'm using nema17 steppers 1.8 step angle. I'll definatly have to look into using an extra axis for the stepper, i did play with a flying extruder for a bit but couldn't get on with it but that sounds like a much better solution
