Introduction to Delta 3D Printers

The most fascinating three-dimensional (3D) printer design to watch print is the delta printer. The delta design is quite different from most 3D printers and is best known for its vertical orientation and relatively small footprint (although larger units can be quite tall). This book will help you learn what you need to buy or build your own delta printer, as well as how to get the most out of your delta printer.

A delta 3D printer, hence delta printer, is a type of parallel robot that uses geometric algorithms to position each of three vertical axes simultaneously to move the nozzle to any position ...
