Final Project: Ostalab Program Fablab Egypt

Ahmed ElEraky

My idea was established up on building Delta 3D Printer
that print using ceramic clay.
Why Delta?
Faster than Cartesian & other configurations
Higher parts.

Why Ceramic?
Ceramic clay is a cheap material with respect to PLA & APS.
Ceramic has a good appearance & you can make it harder by
Color ceramic clay with a few drops of gouache colors or any proper

Idea Inspiration
Ceramic delta 3d printer project idea inspired from
watching those amazing photos from Olivier van Herpt

Design process was divided to phases:
Gathering Knowledge.
Creating design main lines.
Schematic design.
Gathering available materials to determine dimensions.
3D Modeling.
Design final editing.
Working drawings.

M anufacturing
Acrylic (3 mm Sheet & 8 mm Axis).
Wood sheet 3 mm.
Stainless Steel 304, 8 mm D, 4200 mm L.

CNC Router.
MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer.
MORN laser cutter.
Miter Saw.

3* Stepper motors Jameco 238538.
6* Limit Switches for detecting rail ends.
RAMPS V1.4 for system deriving.
Arduino Mega 2560.
ATX Power Supply for feeding electricity.

Softw are
I use Johann Rocholls modifiedMarlin firmware.
To create and edit 3D files I use Autodesk Inventor, an
open source 3D modeling program calledBlender.
To slice up the .stl file to gcode ready for the SD card
that carries the information to the printer I useRepetier
For trying I used Sprinter-master frimware & Pronterface
as a UI.

Frame CAD Design


Most of parts before



Frame Assembly

MDF Cracking under

assembly hammering.

Bearing Holder

Stepper Motor Mount

Still under construction

I have mounted Marlin

firmware on the Arduino
mega successfully but I
did not test it on
mechanism until now.

D elta-TREX 3D Printer

Unorganized Environment.
Availability of materials.
Cutting accuracy.
Stainless Steel bowing.
MDF cracking.
Machining time.
Machines Calibration.
tools leakage.

D evelopm ent
Phase 1
Carbon fiber instead of Acrylic arms.
Artilon instead of MDF for frame.
Compressor with container for feeding ceramic clay automatically.
Adjustable pressure gauge.
Heating bed.
LCD/SD Card kit.
Auto level sensor.

Phase 2
Aluminum frame with higher building scale.
Heaters around print bench for hardening printed parts.
Toolbox for switching between different nozzles sizes & material colors.
