Check out this 3D printer below which Polish maker Arkadiusz Śpiewak has been working on. It is a delta-style 3D printer created based on the Rostock. Śpiewak created its basic design and tested its kinematics in Blender and then added the outline of the frame and parts to hold the actuator. After ordering the parts he began with assembling the frame. To stiffen things up Śpiewak designed a board that connected to the three pillars on which linear actuators are mounted.
After electronics and extruder were mounted he got his first prototype. The first test showed too much vibrations and the structure was not stable. He then designed a part for platform and part for holding the arms in Blender and cut and welded them using aluminum. The result was satisfactory: the platform was finally stable and everything moved precisely.
Check out the video below showing Śpiewak's three months work in action.
