Thus, Cartesian printer axes travel from 0 to max, whereas the delta printer axes (just the X and Y axes) travel from –max to +max. For a delta printer with a 300mm diameter build plate (assuming it can utilize the entire area), the X and Y axes travel from -150 to +150. The Z axis on delta printers move from 0 to max. In most 3D printers, each axis moves on a single plane (a Cartesian printer); the axes are independent and do not affect the resolution (movement) of the other planes. A delta printer, however, uses very small movements for all three axes in order to move to a specific location on the X-, Y-, and Z-planes.

The reason for the cylindrical build volume is the unique geometry of the vertical axes. Delta printers also typically have a taller build height than Cartesian printers—another byproduct of the vertical axes orientation. Another difference is in the orientation of the home position [0,0,0] for the axes. A Cartesian printer typically orients the home position in the forward, left position with all three axes at their starting position. Conversely, a delta printer orients the [0,0,0] position in the center of the build area.

If you apply a little patience and avoid the temptation to join a bidding frenzy, you will find the printer you want at the price you are willing to pay. • Set your expectations based on your budget. Remember, real bargains are hard to come by. If the price is too good to be true, chances are there is something wrong with it. • Find the printer with the lowest usage. I’ve seen cases where used printers have no more than a few hours of use. Avoid printers with hundreds of hours of use, or are broken, or advertised as non-working or needs work.
