  • Reman: Got stuck in traffic yesterday. After an hour I started using my phone (And an OTG cable) to look through the media files on a keyring of my old USB sticks. Found one that had the entire run of "Firefly" on it. I got through 3 episodes before the traffic started moving again....... God, That really was an amazing show.

  • hoverfly: I coated a couple of Slipstreams  a few years ago  It stiffened up the wing nicely .On the down side although it prevented dings when i had an high speed"arrival" it left the resin cracked. and the glass lifted slightly.  Well stuck laminate stiffens the wing and is flexible..

I think you'll need to look at what your wanting to use your printer for to get the answer you want.

both the printer designs you've listed have their advantages and possible issues.

for a simple example.

The tronxy CoreXY build has superior build width and will be better for printing items with a large footprint

while the Delta has the advantage in terms of height (and when setup correctly) speed

in other words....

If your after printing multirotor frames the Core XY Tronxy

If your after printing the missus a "toy" the Delta

you just need to decide which will better improve your life.... lots of multi's to fly or the missus pre-occupied having lots of multi's and therefore leaving you alone. ~~

nope, I'm saying each design has its advantages and disadvantages.

A coreXY & prusa style are generally easier to setup and maintain which makes them better for a newcomer, they have generally large print beds for wider/larger horizontal prints.

A detla style has a slightly steeper learning curve but when properly setup and maintained can out perform the other two in terms of speed and often precision. what they lack in print bed width/size they often make up with in vertical precision.

Just get both  ~~
I agree with shawdreamer decide by what you want to use it for
I had an earlier version of the anycubic which I sold yesterday for £100 to a member on here and I have to say for the money it was very good but,
did require more building than the current version and had rollers instead of rails but was a fair bit cheaper than the new larger version with the upgrades fitted that you linked to,
It came with every thing needed to start printing once it was built and worked very well without any problems

heres a video of it doing a test cube just skip through it if you take a look its a bit long  ::)

What are you using now for printing if you've sold the delta ? I would like to use nylon and a plastic with some flex but not too rubbery, maybe tpu.
I must remember that the build size on the delta is smaller as one measurement is a radius.
Sorry I forgot to tick box notify of replies.

you might just be making your life hard there if your new to the 3d printing world, filaments such as ninja-flex etc and tpu have their own individual degree's of difficulty and often require a greater degree of prep to get a clean print out of them, plus each has its own slicing settings in regards to retraction and speed so they can all be a little tricky to get right.

however if your set on having a degree of flexibility in a design (something like stiff rubber) such like motor dampening spacers on multirotors then a good option to look at is flexi-PLA, it essentially has very similar print properties and requirements as its hard PLA cousins but offers the "rubbery" quality most are looking for.

I found excelvan flex-pla to be a excellent option in this regard and I use it for varying vibe dampening applications.



prints as well as most PLa's with the minimum of fuss but can be a bit of a pain to find in the UK

That looks ok ! I want to make motor mounts that will slip over and glue to carbon tube that's stiff and takes a bit of bashing along with camera brackets that are softer / bendy.

I sold the anycubic because I built a couple of deltas from parts a large one and one very similar to the anycubic but with better gear  ~~

It works well for them sorta applications, Ive also used it to make a couple of protective phone covers (from when I was taking my new phones onto site's and inevitably dropping them) and a few lipo sleeves.

Thats not the same version linked above thats the more basic version with pulleys and not rails and looking at the dragon he printed Id say it did very well for $200

A lot of budget printers dont perform as well as the manafacturers claim but you basically get what you pay for  ~~  :beer2:
