Re: Printed parts larger than what they should be.

Y-Y scaling on a delta is primarily a function of delta arm length. Z scaling is primarily a function of steps/mm for the carriage steppers. But both of the above interact with each other. My recommendation is to do a 7 factor calibration (change S6 to S7 in bed.g) and run 3 times. Then issue M665 ...

Re: Printed parts larger than what they should be.

Then they're 16, like I said Michael Hackney supplied the parts and he set up the configuration files for me when I was there. If I was home i'd be able to print something to test the 379 arm lengths recommended by the other post someone linked on FB but that will have to wait until later.

[Solved] Printed parts larger than what they should be.

I know this has something to do with the Diaganol Arm Length and some mathmatical formula but I cannot remember it. Also the Z height is pretty far off, so I printed a 30mm x 30mm x 30mm cube, 32.56 x 32.35 y 37.40 z This is on a D300+ that I just finished building. Arm length written on the rod is ...

Re: TrickLaser Ball-Cup Arms

So I'm putting together the printer now with the new parts, as well as other color replacements for black and I've reached the carriages and I can't quite figure out the best method for tightening the belts.. Do you start with the bottom and wedge the belt in there, then loop it around and do the to...

Ball Cup Arms upgrades and questions about spacers.

I am going to upgrade my D300VS to a + Model, I already have a Titan Aero and I'll prolly use it w/ a Volcano hotend, or maybe I'll keep it with the regular v6. Regardless, I have 9mm spacers already and I have Eccentric spacers from my 1st printer, and their total overall length is 9mm but3mm goes ...

Sourcing hardware for my own D300VS Some screw questions.

Originally when I talked to brad he gave me what I thought was a complete listing of all hardware needed for the k250 printer, which mostly translates over to the D300VS. Problem is I seemed to have skipped a bag of screws for the carriages and I don't have any of the correct hardware needed to put ...
