Circle and arcs patterns in outer shells

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a WASP Delta 2040 printer and in all my prints there are circles and arcs patterns emerging.

Here are some photos:

In the photos above you can see the arcs.

In the photo above you can see the circle on the left side.

I saw that there are other users of this 3d printer that have the same problem but couldn’t find any information about this. If there is a troubleshooting guide about this please share it.

The printer is in service now so I can't test anything, but any info would be appreciated.

Thank you for reading.

That circle pattern is - well - very interesting! I've never seen that. I would ask on a delta forum as I suspect all of these are related. The arcs - is the center of the arc pointing towards the hinge point of one of the delta arms?

The wall patterns might be somehow related to Cura or maybe to your cad software or a combination of the 2 but the flat circle pattern - there's no way - cura just does simple diagonal lines. There is nothing that could come out as a circle pattern there. That circle pattern has to be related to the printer itself.

I was using Simplify3d for the perimeters. Cura was used for the circle.

The center of the arc is facing the door of the printer (between Y and X tower). It does a bowl effect.

The circle appeared between the Y and Z tower.

I don't have the photo but I saw a WASP Delta 2040 user that had multiple circles on a big print (a football),

Can you recommend me a forum for Delta printer problems?

Thank you for the support.

That guy registered 3 years ago but posted last may. Less than a year ago. The first 2 answers make a ton of sense to me and is probably why he never posted again saying "it can't be answer A or B because ____".

Do you have auto leveling because that could explain it. The circles could be centered where the auto leveling points touch and these rings are leveling compensation.

Alternatively I like the second answer as well.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
