Delta width rods + carriages
January 21, 2021 11:44AM

I've recently rebuild my kossel (anycubic linear) the original design was 240mm bed diameter, 267mm rod lenght and the effector and carriages had 44mm distance.

I'd mod an effector with width 51mm and use carriage of 51mm too, to accomodate all my needs, have use the same rods 267mm center to center.

Now I think the nozze doesnt reach the full bed size. I think I lose some mm's of my bed.

The increase of width of rods width could possible reduce the motion of nozzle? Or is just because some misalignment of angle's or somthing else in my design?

The distance between arms change alone shouldn't change the printable area. But effector offset can, did you change that? I think the stock effector is 31mm or 32mm. [reprap.org]
Even though it has a 240mm build plate my Anycubic Kossel Linear Plus was advertised as having a 230mm build volume and in my experiance was a mm or two less than that.
