At the moment the rewards for the Kickstarter are being put together, to be sent out very soon. We will be launching a new Kickstarter afterwards. We are planning to offer a comprehensive flat pack kit for £660, with a few 'early adaptor' units going for £600. Delivery charges will go on top of this and outside the EU there will potentially be charges for import duty and value added tax. After the new Kickstarter the Deltatrix 3D Printer is planned to be available for pretty much the same price, but with 20% added VAT for EU customers.

Hello all,

I am Richard Tegelbeckers, designer of the DeltaTrix 3D printer. The design for the initial prototype has been published on Instructables with over 80000 views and over 700 'likes' so far: http://www.instructables.com/id/DeltaTrix-3D-Printer/

The current information on Instructables is sufficient to re-create my first prototype, with more updates to follow soon. Anyone interested in making a printer from scratch is welcome to use the Open Source
plans already published. Alternatively, the printer is now available as a kit on crowdsourcing platform Kickstarter: http://kck.st/1i6fQ6w

The printer is not trying to be the cheapest around, but is aimed at satisfying the requirements of the more demanding maker and the professional design engineer. It is very fast, very accurate, made to last, and designed to inspire. Thanks for your attention, and may the (Open) Source be with you!

The CNC machining company I use supplies panels which are fully accurate (you get what you pay for...). By applying the correct tolerances, the frame aligns automatically by design. No need to true up, just make sure sure that the screws pull the panels tight together. An electric screw driver with adjustable torque setting is advised... We tried several carriages on the Drylin slides and the ones used proved to perform best. Pre-tension is advantageous as the standard carriages have a certain amount of play. Thanks for your comments!!!

The DeltaTrix 3D Printer, currently on Kickstarter, is now available with optional door panels! Not every 3D printer can easily be closed off and this is certainly true for the majority of existing delta printers. Have a look at my latest Kickstarter update, to check out the new, vacuum formed doors!
A high performance 3D printer of exceptional quality, to satisfy the requirements of the most demanding makers & designers.

+Richard Tegelbeckers Supposedly the patent on heated enclosures is limited to cartesian machines. Read it to make up your own mind though.
