This is a repository of the parts I made/remixed to make my large metal delta printer, the detailed build log is here http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?178,702599.

A BOM is available here:

This is by no means a complete design for a printer, as it is basically a kossel.

Most of it is self explanatory.

The panel due bracket requires bonding together after assembly with superglue or acetone. In this and some other panels you might need to drill some holes to mount them with tnuts, and for cables depending on how you intend to wire yours up. Drill holes near to the push fit connectors to prevent the panels bending when the bolts are done up.

I've just uploaded the twin fan shroud, it's adjustable so you can change the side fan's height, for v6 to volcano heater block changes. There is a second version uploaded (v2-e3dv6...) which has a slightly better mounting for a dc42 IR sensor, and some spacing to allow the legs of the connector on the back of the PCB some space.

Added a panel to connect at the top front horizontal with the name of the printer which also acts as a shade if you place an LED strip facing downwards in this location. The LED shines through the text.

Added an alternative e3d v6 (and volcano its adjustable) shroud which can have a DC42 IR sensor attached to it, close to the nozzle to minimise the effect of tilt in the effector when using this sensor.

Added a revised version of the bed mounts which now have slimline clamps. My bed large and heavy though it was was moving about very slightly and throwing the bed level calculations off. If you have not made one yet make the version with the clamps and the clamps themselves and then heat press some m4 nuts into it. If you have made it already, just make the clamps, drill through them with a 4mm drill bit and then use m4 bolts and nuts heat press the nuts using the holes as a guide.

Added an adaptor which can re-orientate the magnets in a k800 style effector to 45 deg to improve holding force. Bond into the effector with superglue/epoxy, ensure spacing between magnets is the same as on the carriages.

If you want to edit most of the files you can do so:

I have enclosed and water-cooled this machine details are at

I will add some stls specific to the enclosure or water cooling to a separate listing on Thingiverse as this one is getting a bit busy.
