Tip If you are considering sourcing your own kit or want to learn more about other, Cartesian RepRap designs, you may want to read Maintaining and Troubleshooting Your 3D Printer (Apress, 2014). It contains a detailed discussion on sourcing components. The Mini Kossel is an excellent choice for those who want to build a delta printer from scratch. The design is very well-thought-out and assembly is much shorter than a traditional Cartesian RepRap. Furthermore, the design allows for a host of customization and options that you can explore.

Figure 2-10. Axes movement and orientation So how does the printer move the axis and how does it work? This is an area that can vary among delta printers, but fortunately there are only a few different mechanisms. Some use smooth rods with bearings to support the mechanical parts of the axis, whereas others use wheels running in tracks. Bearings can be made from plastic, oil-infused bronze, or special ball bearings (called linear bearings). Still others use a special rail with recirculating ball bearings.

You should also consider the fact that RepRap 3D printers require a fair bit of maintenance and tinkering to get working well. 19 Most of the vendors in this category do not offer much in the way of services, but most at least make their manuals and assembly guides available for download. Although a few offer phone support, most will answer your questions via e-mail within a day or so. The main reason for this is that the vendors are striving to make RepRap printers more widely available. They’ve done all the hard work for you by sourcing the various parts and ensuring that the parts work together.
