Our Delta Printer Build

Posted by Noman on Oct 27th 2019

Hey guys, I've been getting a lot of questions on Delta builds and what we use at SnoLabs.

Ours is built off of the UltiBots D300VS Plus printer, however they're now out of business. 

I have the printer built on Fusion 360 and here's the link!
