Does The Delta Style Of 3D Printers Make A Difference?
To put it simply, yes. The most obvious difference, outside of physical design, between a Delta and a vast majority of all other 3D printer designs, is how the hot end moves. Second to that would be that the print bed on a delta style 3d printer does not move. The Cartesian style that many 3D Printers use (the hot end moving left to right and up and down while the print bed moves front to back) might very well be an easier method of designing a 3d printer, but it comes at the cost of the weight of all those moving objects. That weight, when moving and changing directions, can cause jerking which has to be dealt with to prevent issues with the final print. The DeltaMaker design allows the hot end to move with a very high degree of freedom, speed, and the ability to change directions with much less jerk than a Cartesian style 3D Printer. This leads to an improvement to the overall print quality of the 3d object. Unlike Cartesian models, with a DeltaMaker only the hot end moves, keeping the print bed stable and resulting in not only a faster print time but a cleaner print. An added advantage with printers using the delta design is that they can print much lighter and taller items, (like vases, dragons, statues, etc), much easier than their Cartesian counterparts because of the DeltaMaker's fixed print bed.
The DeltaMaker is the perfect 3D Printer for Education Facilities, Media Professionals, and Maker Spaces. DeltaMaker 3D Printers are "ready to print" directly from the box, with no assembly required. Simply add filament, attach the magnetic build plate, bed map and level, and the DeltaMaker is ready to being 3d printing. There is no wiring, soldering, or tinkering required. DeltaMaker's open design makes it easy for curious minds to see what is happening from a multitude of angels. With the available acrylic locking enclosure, the DeltaMaker 3D Printer is the choice for Elementary, Middle, and High Schools for their Fab Labs, Hackerspaces, Robotics Teams, Media Centers, and more. And just wait until you hear about DeltaMaker's warranty, exchange, and support system; something we'd love to talk to you about.
DeltaMaker has designed a clean and elegant desktop 3D printer built on a delta robot platform with a tall, open design, all metal construction, and full wireless control. To learn more about DeltaMaker, and what we can do for you, please contact us.
