      I built a custom delta using 3, 1000 mm long C-Beam® Linear Rails and 3 C-Beam Gantry Sets. I had the bottom and top plates water jetted ( for accuracy ) out of 1/2 inch aluminum, from a design that I did in Fusion 360.

      I borrowed from other designs I had seen. Anything that I figured was a good idea, or would work well, I incorporated in my design.

      I had the top and bottom plates water jetted, for the level of accuracy that type of cutting has. the frame being dimensionally accurate, is by far the most important part of any build. get that wrong and it'll never really print right.
