Re: multiple filaments, multiple extruders, one head???

Have a look at what RichRap did, not perfect for a delta but a good place to start…

I'm using this as a starting point for a bowden based 3 way feed for a delta,

Re: Hello from Sydney Australia

Hi Mate,
And everyone else on this forum,
I'm also in Sydney and in a similar position to you, I want a big cost effective printer (but about a month away from ordering) So I'll be really interested to see how you go with shipping and assembly etc.
Cheers

The next frontier…including the z-axis in printing path

Hi All, After reading what is available regarding research papers, I'm wondering if any one has looked into developing g-codes that include the z axis? So rather than just slice stuff via x and y, you move the head through z…. There are only a couple of papers out there discussing this but you have ...

Re: Rostock Twin...

I was thinking it may be a cost effective way to build tall narrow items, and ultimately if the carriages in the centre could come off the opposite sides of a single larger post, the build area of each head would overlap much more you could build larger items without a significantly larger printer.....

Rostock Twin...

Hi All, I'm thinking about buying a Rostock kit as I'm interested in getting a delta 3D printer, as a mechanical engineer I'm always thinking of ways to modify things, and are wondering why no one has made a machine with two delta heads producing one piece? Mechanically it is possible as you can see...
