The 3D Printer is up, running, and calibrated! My wife and I have been having a blast with it so far and its been running non-stop the last two weekends. Its been quite a learning experience figuring out how to calibrate it precisely. Delta style printers like the Mini Kossel are really robust and fast but due to the trigonometry required to converted x,y,z coordinates to tower movements the calibration can be a bit tricky. There is a fantastic blog post HERE that walks you through step by step how to calibrate your printer.
Now for a little show and tell. Here are a few of the things we’ve been able to print so far and a video showing the printer at work!
More to come as we keep printing and learning about building our own 3D Models!
