Super big delta style 3D printer is made !

Hello , everybody !  I silence for a long time and seems disappear , in fact , I am designing a big machine : Huge delta 3D printer ,

my hugh big 3d printer -1


When I talked my thoughts to friends , every one think I am crazy , it is impossible to work with such limit funds support , I insist on it this time because I saw other one is successful .  After months and months , day and night install & test , until today , it works !!! ( I feel I am luck , I almost give up …  
:-p )

huge 3d printer bed -2

According my test, max diameter 800mm is OK  (I think it can reach 1 meter square , but I make small mistake on design ) , and max height 1500mm is possible , ( I think it can be 1700mm , but I make another mistake too ) , the material can be PLA at present , I really hope to make ABS and other later .

It doesn’t matter ! the most important thing is , it works at the beginning  !!!

About the building progress , it is really not easy :

1. I have to find a big place to prepare , at last I throw away a table in my office .
2. I have to find the long aluminum support , very long and hard to take back , I paid a lot in extra express fee , but at last , I have to take it by myself , I put in on my arm and walk thousands of meter !
3. I have to waste lots of time on designing structure and waste some money at the beginning too .
4. I have to climb ladders by myself and tight each screw .
5. I link wires by myself , some is too long , some is short , have to joint together .
6. I burned electric board twice ! what a pain !
7. My huge 3d printer bed design is totally wrong , I waste a lot of money there and I have to give up whole design .
8. Crazy adjustment is behind ,  I spend of leveling for at least one month !

I think I can write a big book for eating such stuff one by one .  Now , it start work as I expect ,  I will publish more info later ,  Thanks the god ! and have a good day , everybody !

  1. Dear Winsion Liang,

    This 3d big delta is really impressive. I am interesting to build one of my own.
    I want to have 600mm(diameter) x 1200mm(height) . Could you give me some advise or even better some blueprints i can use as reference.

    Thank you very much

    • sorry to reply late , you need to search the file for delta manual first , then count the data of axis pole length to cut . Most parts need to re-design .
      Big delta is not easy to make , pls make sure you play small one very very familiar first .
