This is a remix of a previous delta effector I had been using from the awesome work on Duet and auto-calibration that DC42 has done for delta printers.

There are 2 versions of this design:
1.threaded inserts for using M3 machine screws(links below)
2.plastic screws for fasteners

Mount for Mini differential IR sensor for auto-calibration of delta printers
Mount for 2x 40mm part cooling fans
Mount for E3D Heatsink 40mm cooilng fan
Brass threaded inserts so threads dont wear out and fasteners can be tightly fastened

What you need to build this design:

Various M3 SHCS or other type of machine screws for the threaded inserts
Plastic screws which can be found in inkjet printers and other hardware

3x 40mm cooling fans(I had good expirence with these 3d fans but not the 30mm ones)

Threaded Inserts(if needed) can be found here:
(install with a soldering iron)(be careful not to burn yourself.)

(recomended items)
E3d v6 heatsink silicone sock(very very stable hotend temperature performace)
note:should recalibrate the PID values in your heater control loop when installing the silicone heater sock.

Printer Brand:













use the correct amount of Infill overlap/backslash compensation to make sure to get a strong part out of your printer.

May cause some slicers to hicciup due to the large file size. It'll work eventually.

how do you secure and fixing the hotend to not sliding...I can see if it's fit well it will not move up and down ,but not sure horizontal one

Good question. Its not really clear in the pictures but the holes on top of the hot end holder are for attaching an effector rod connector of whatever you want. That sandwiches the top of the hotend so its sturdy. I should probably link In the one I used in the description but heres an example: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:214989

Delta effector. 3 mm holes.

ha! ok I see...yes thanks to point me out
