Those of you that would like to build your very own delta robot and 3D printer may be interested in a new Kickstarter campaign for ZATSIT which provides everything you need to do just that. Providing a system that is “innovative in its technology, architecture, construction and performance”, check out the demonstration video below to learn more.
Unique specifications of the Zatsit include :
– It is built practically without mechanical components. About everything is made from a sheet of a special composite with polypropylene core, Hylite, engraved by Computer Numerical Control (CNC), to create hinges and folds, and thus constitute the mechanism, and all the other necessary components. The accuracy and precision are therefore those of the CNC.
– The overall architecture optimizes direct and symmetrical force transmission and minimizes cantilevers. What moves is ultra-light, what does not move is ultra-stable, and respects a very exact geometric layout.
– The hot-end is water-cooled, and never jams. It is really ultra-simple (so simple that you won’t believe it!), ultra-light, all metal, and nevertheless compatible with what already exists (Nozzles, heating blocks, etc…)
– Accessories such as extruders, fans, flystruders, are always gimballed, thanks to Hylite technology, to minimize parasitic forces on the printhead, and minimize the length of the Bowden tube(s).
For full specifications and a complete list of all available pledges which start from €300 for the early bird edition of the Zatsit jump over to the official Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign page by following the link below.
