Example text

Only the Z tower can be considered in the same plane. But that is not correct either. Recall that it requires movement from all three axes to effect a movement in the X, Y, and Z planes. Thus, you refer to each axis movement as A, B, and C or alpha, beta, and gamma corresponding to the X, Y, and Z towers. You may find some delta literature that refers to these as the A, B, and C towers. When you measure the axis movement, not the position of the effector, you refer to the axis movement as A, B, and C.

Whichever mechanism is used to move the axis, the geometry of that mechanism must be known and entered into the firmware. For example, the size of the drive pulley (the one mounted on the electric motor) and the number of teeth per millimeter of the belt are critical for determining how far the firmware must turn the motor to move the axis a fraction of a millimeter. 52 Chapter 2 ■ Delta Printer Hardware Smooth Rods The earliest form of vertical delta printer axis mechanisms used a pair of smooth rails with linear roller bearings, brass bushings, or even bushings made from Nylon or PLA (and thus printed).
