Additive manufacturing, also known as “3D printing” keeps diffusing into many industries with a rapid pace. The greatest advantage of 3D printers is that it allows the designers to produce a prototype in a very short time that can be tested and quickly remodeled if necessary. This significantly reduces the required time to advance from the design phase to the final product. Another great advantage is manufacturing components which have very complex and precise forms through this technique. It is also possible to speed the process of manufacturing of complex parts which can be produced in a long time with conventional methods. In this paper, the design and fabrication of a large size FFF 3D delta printer, also the challenges encountered during the fabrication are presented.
