Delta / Kossel Geometry Explorer

PRE RELEASE V0.2.3

This calculator is intended to help understand Delta / Kossel geometry and kinematics. It can also be used to finalize sizing when designing and building a custom printer.

FRAME SIZING INPUTS

Length of Horizontal Extrusions (Corner offsets will be auto added)

Length of Vertical Extrusions

Length of Diagonal Rods (joint center to joint center)

Length of Linear Rails (will be autopositioned 30mm below top corners)

The sliders can be pre-set via URL arguments:
