Build Footprint Details

Posted by DeltaMaker (Creator)

Hello Backers!

We wanted to provide a little more information regarding the DeltaMaker build envelope. Our campaign originally specified a 9 inch diameter build footprint that is 11 inches tall. Time to dig into this a little bit deeper.

We are now able to commit a larger envelope, and describe it in more detail. To date, we have been working with a round build platform. The limits of the DeltaMaker are better described with a hexagonal shape. But it’s much simpler to just describe the largest circle that will fit inside the hexagon. We have revised the production footprint such that we can now upgrade the 9 inch diameter to 10 inches!

To maximize the DeltaMaker’s capabilities, it really makes sense to go with a hexagon shaped build platform, rather than a round one. As such, we wanted to share with our backers what our anticipated final build envelope is going to be.

  • Longest Line: 11.5”
  • Largest Circle: 10” Diameter 
  • Largest Square: 7.3” x 7.3” 
  • Longest Rectangle: 10” x 5.7” 
  • Area: 86.6 square inches 
  • Volume: 950 cubic inches (at 11” tall).
