    Hi @John Bolduc -

    Your reasons for building this is exactly why I came to see what was happening on open builds. I was looking at the Tevo Little Monster. I like that it is using C-Channel from Open Builds, I like the approximate size too. However I was thinking of the various aspects I would want to upgrade on the Tevo like the electronics. So this got me to thinking I could potentially build my own. Looks like you are already well on your way.

    Can you share more about your design?

    What is your frame size?
    What is your approximate build volume?
    What did you use for a heatbed?
    Tell me more about your arms, extruder/hotend, etc. I don't have any hesitation to build a strong frame like yours, working in all the other mechanics though for a delta, when I've not built a delta before, makes me pause and want to do a lot of research before I jump into this. Any knowledge, design or advice you have to share is appreciated.

    I am also interested. Could you save your printer file assembly as a .stp or .step file so I can open it in solidworks? I'm looking forward to building a strong delta.

    Hey I like your build was wondering how I could increase the bed size to 500mm?? And do I increase arm space and such?

    Great Job!!! I'm getting tired of my Rostock Max V2 and it quirks. Looking to make an all metal frame and a larger sized printer with linear rails with no skimps. I am not the greatest at CAD. Can you please resize your plates for a 500mm bed. That would be awesome. Thank you in advance if you can.

    Sorry if it has been posted, I didn't see it. I have been looking to build an all metal delta printer. The o problem is I haven't been able to find firmware and controller combo that is solid/ tried and true. What are you running and how does it work?

    I believe he's using the WiFi version of the Duet with the stock (RepRap I think) firmware.
    I'm extremely interested in this build myself, and in the requested 500mm diameter upgrade to the hotbed.

    For some time I have been interested in a new build. It was going to be a Railcore Style printer but with bigger extrusions. I was a bit fed up with my Rostock V2 too, despite a lot of upgrades. I feel the frame has simply too much room for play and error. Until I saw the TLM, a delta build would be no option for me anymore. But considering the C-Beam and direct-to-plate connection (So simple that I don't understand why it hasn't been done by all these others, working with stupid and error-prone corner brackets!).

    Seeing practically zero room for play in this top and bottom plate construction I am starting to get excited for a new delta build again ;-)

    One idea I have is to make the top and bottom plate round. and have a flange on it. That would make it VERY easy to fold a piece of polycarbonate between the towers to get a perfectly round enclosure for almost free, without even the need of a door. You simple pull out a side panel!

    I was wondering what the best option would be (open or commercial) for the inline skates that go up and down the C-Beam extrusions. I do not want linear rail because I think the improvement is very little, it is expensive and I hear a lot of problems with those too.

    Any Idea's?
    Good luck with your build!

    I have created 3 files in "Autocad-VER 2000" that has the bed at 500mm, well technically 505mm if you wanna lay down 500mm glass or buildtak or PEI, whatever. The bed file has the circular bed portion recessed .1mm at the top and the total thickness at 6mm, should CNC it out of MIC6.

    The top plate has all the holes in the correct location except for that recessed L shape. I can't seen to extrude the .DWG for the top plate to 6mm correctly, should CNC it out of 6061 to save money.

    The bottom plate should be out of 6061 and it should be 8mm thick. Some holes were sized at the appropriate drill size to be tapped for M5 and M6 threads.
    I left out the 2mm recessed C Beam mount holes underneath.
    If anyone would like to try to fix the TOP PLATE for me please do so and share.

    If anyone can go and double check everything or if you're good at Autcad please clean up or add more fillets or chamfers onto some edges so we don't slice ourselves up that would be great too
    If anyone can get a good price quote for CNC work let us know.

    I will include the factory TEVO CNC files for comparison.

    I want to add DUET WiFi, Smart effector, linear rails, 600mm or over 10mm carbon fiber magnetic arms, some .09 motors and 24V supply for all.

    Question anyone think about the same glass used in fireplace and electric ranges that conducts heat better than borosilicate for the bed?

    Yes, just like SG Duet Delta and the Tevo Little Monster. Instead of the four holes to mount them I included all six on both plates, just gotta thread 2 more holes on the C beams.

    I just updated my previous post to Autocad 2000 files vs 2013.

    Someone with better CAD skills please do your magic

    For people that don't want to go the linear rail route (because costly, problem-prone if you buy cheap, and probably very little improvent compaired to a V-Wheel solution), this will be very nice info! I always was very satisfied about the injection molded SeeMeCNC skates with spring-load. This is similar, but fitting the inside of a C-Beam!
