Delta 3D Printer Bed Leveling

Introduction: Delta 3D Printer Bed Leveling

This is a simple way to level your Delta 3D printer bed. ( This is made for Ø200 mm bed, but you can modify it for any for any bed)

Step 1: Supplies

You will need:

- 3 Printed parts ( see attachment )

- 6 M3x25 screws

- 6 M3 Nuts

- 8 M5x10 screws (2 supports will be fixed with 3 and the 3rd one only with 2 ( so you can remove the bed when you need )

- 8 M5 nuts ( or special T-nut for aluminum profile )

- 6 Metal sheet ( around 1 square centimeter each; you can cut it from old cd-rom case )

- 1 Super glue

Step 2: Assembly

After you print all 3 parts you need to place the M3 nuts into the hexagonal shaped holes. ( see picture ). Next you need to insert the M3 screw .

After you insert the M3 screw you need to glue the metal sheet right under it ( see picture ) to prevent the damage on the plastic surface.

Use the M5 screws and nuts to mount the parts on the 3d printer. Two of the parts will be fixed with 3 screws ( 2 on the side and one in the middle ) and the 3rd one will be fixed only with 2 screws ( on the sides ).

Step 3: Bed Leveling

After you fixed the bed you need to level the bed.

First, tighten the M3 screw until it touches the metal sheet, then tighten it 2 more turns.After that move the 3D printer extruder from side to side. Use the screws to get the bed lower or higher.

    Good tutorial. Countless prints have been ruined by something as simple as an unlevel printing bed.
