exploration of ideas and changes to make things work more effectively or more robust and reliable. I started my 3D printing journey last september with a basic Kossel kit printer, and I've been reworking and refining parts of it ever since. I've compiled some of the better and current modifications below, along with some tricks that I've found that make working with the printers easier.

Last up are a couple of Delta specific tips, a simple way to measure delta rod arm length and a simple add on that drastically reduces the noise generated by the printer.

the correct length. After everything had dried, I rejigged each rod and used a spare Lego brick and my 6" calipers to measure the exact length of each arm. The spare Lego brick acts as a marking block, providing a point of reference for the calipers, since the arms are roughly 8.5" long.
