Re: Files other than .STL?

3d printing is still very primitive, even Stratasys uses STL files still. I totally agree that "3d printing is still very primitive" But I think "additive manufacturing" is making some ground breaking advancement. I've been interested in this file question since bringing my Max ...

Re: What features do you like on other Deltas?

I think 626Pilot has hit most of the list. The one thing that's been on my mind lately is an enclosure. I think once you nail a frame design down, you have to consider an enclosure. I have a V1 with the original side extruder mount. It severely hampers designing a "clean" enclosure of the ...

Re: Advice needed for design

IMO, try printing it upright. It's a large piece. If your printer isn't calibrated well(hopefully it will be ;) ) you might have issues out at the edged of the build area. I also think the layering in that orientation would make it stronger. It will require some support under the pointed piece. As f...

Re: printed bearings

Printing these requires the correct support settings in the slicer. You need to have an almost solid support disc for the very small point of contact that the balls sit on. And if one comes loose, your done. :)
