Spatial One - 3D Delta Printer

3D Delta printer designed for robustness and accuracy of the moving parts. A kit with manufactured sheetmetal and machined parts, powered by a smoothie board with industrial bearings. The printer was demonstrated at the 2015 TCT show and now is available as a kit from

A video below shows the printer in action

All information and drawings etc are also available on my website, i will be writing some blogs about the build and the choice of parts over the next coming weeks whilst i researched into designing this machine.


Print Technology: Fused filament fabrication (FFF)

Print Media: PLA, ABS, Nylon, etc any material with extrusion   temperature up to 300C except flexible filament (new extruder and hot end platform to print such materials coming soon)

Build Volume: 270 diameter x 300mm height (diameter varies depending on single or dual hot ends)

Layer Resolution: 0.1 to 0.4mm

Filament Diameter: 1.75mm

Extrusion Speed: Travel speeds of 500mm/s and print speeds of 80-100mm/s for draft, 40mm/s for fine printing, this will be matter of your printing preference.


Materials: Anodised aluminium, 304 stainless steel, pla printed parts

Construction: Robust metal construction with some printed parts.

Moving Parts: Preloaded ball raced vertical slides to eliminate any adjustment required and play. Igus rod ends and industrial bearings.


Electronics: Smoothie board 5xc, capable of dual extruders, with GLCD graphic controller

AC input: 100-240VAC 50-60Hz

Power Requirements: 24VDC @ 500w and 12VDC @ 15w

Connectivity: USB and ethernet

Special Features:

Auto levelling: Aluminum heated bed with FSR levelling. Auto levelling of the bed using calibration functions built into the smoothie board

Interchangeable End Effector: Interchangeable end effector, currently with a single hot end, further developments such as dual extruder, chocolate printer and ceramic printer. 12 way plug and socket for easy swap between different end effectors.

Materials and methods

See 1-00000-bom.pdf in the documents section, the bom is easier to manage in this form.
