FDM printer builds:
FDM 3D printer using a delta motion system. Delta kinematics have inherently low inertia in the end effector motion planes, good for fast movement. Since building this, printing has become an invaluable tool in all projects. A requirement for my future machines will be multi material printing. Mk.1 build 02/2017, mk.2 and mk.3 seen here.
SLS print head with N50 magnets to capture the pushrod steel balls
Push rods version 1. The following set was designed with a fine adjustment to match the lengths
Trinamic stepper motor drivers. Later abandoned for a more integrated control solution
