I just built a GeeeTech Delta Printer. As I was building it I thought of a way to expand the height of any Delta style printer. The idea being that "What if we retracted the build plate as the model grows in height?"
I envision suspending the printer from the ceiling and positioning the retracting build plate to gradually retract toward the floor. As I think about this an XY 0r Cantilever could also use this design mod but I think a Delta might be faster
