Can repetier firmware handle a true delta design? Or only the rostock variant.

The math only matches the rostock design. Changing the math for an other combination may be possible, but if this requires sin, cos it might be too slow.

the code for calculating motor angles for a certain x,y,z position needs (for each motor):
6 substractions
9 additions
12 multiplications
4 divitions
1 sqrt
1 arctan
and 2 if's

Do you think that its possible to do without beeing to slow?
