possible to calibrate errors in delta printer?


Recommended Posts

Posted · possible to calibrate errors in delta printer?

I have a few issues printing with my delta printer:

 

If I print a cone and it's in the center of the build plate, it's perfect, but if I print it to the side, it's slightly skewed (linear extrude with translation) toward center .   The difference is not huge but easy to see.

 

If I print a very large cylinder, like 220mm diameter (build plate is 240mm)   it is very slightly egg shaped.   The difference is less than 1mm, but it's a problem for me because I'm trying to print toothed pulleys and the teeth end up being slightly over fit on one side and under fit on the other side.    If I print two circles (cylinders) this size and stack them then rotate one, there is a slight difference about half a mm.

 

Can cura calibrate this out somehow or do I have to do this in the printer software?  How would I go about calibrating out these errors?

    I think that is the kind of calibration you need to do on the printer itself. Delta printers are known for needing calibration in order to prevent issues like this.

    I can't tell you how to do that, since I don't own a delta printer, but there are enough guides on the internet on how to do this.
