The Legendary Octosniffle Lives

After months and versions of prototyping, the Legendary Octosniffle is finally printing. I printed the main components in wood PLA and applied stain and polyurethane to achieve a nice wood-like appearance.

I designed the Legendary Octosniffle around the basic Delta 3D printer geometry, with the following modifications:

  • Lead-screw drive vs. a belt drive.
  • Magnetic effector joints.
  • More printed structural parts vs. purchased parts than in a typical delta printer.

I’ve very happy with the printer’s:

  • accuracy
  • aesthetics

And I’m satisfied with the printer’s:

  • speed

More to follow.
