I've designed a 250mm size delta using primarily stock hardware and few 3d printed parts. While I got interested in 3d printing because of the reprap project, I think there can be simpler ways to build that a large selection of printed parts. This design uses mostly off the shelf hardware and laser cut parts. The current design still has a couple printed parts were it makes sense.
The connector plates, carriages and end effector plate are laser cut. For the first prototype, I used plywood, but expect to change to acrylic once the bugs are worked out.
I got great results with this build and have rebuilt with acrylic. The BOM is uploaded and I will have the laser cut parts available if you want to build your own.
