California-based startup Blue Eagle Labs has launched a new and improved version of their 3D printer – the Metal Delta – on Kickstarter.
The Metal Delta is based on the company’s first Kickstarter campaign back in 2013, the successfully funded Kossel Clear 3D printer. The new kit incorporates strategic bends and cut patterns that make the assembly much easier for the user. Slots have been designed to easily mount various parts and holes are pre-tapped so that other parts can be bolted on precisely.
The rigid steel frame allows users to print designs with higher accuracy and precision in a build area of 250 diameter x 304 hight mm. The printer also incorporates many updated design improvement from the open source community and has already been profoundly tested by 20 experienced 3D printer owners.
Additional upgrade options can be attached, including a laser engraver and a dual extrusion print head. Moreover ultra-precision magnetic ball joint, a Gecko Tek Bed and high resolution motors are available.
The Metal Delta comes with a free 1-year commercial subscription to Autodesk Fusion 360, allowing you to design and print your 3D models.
While the printer has already been sucessfully funded the campaign still runs until September 3rd. Early bird kits are available from $ 499 for the Metal Delta PLA Kit.
