MicroDelta Rework 3d printer

Here our new 3D printer, a MicroDelta Rework from EmotionTech, a Toulousain firm.
It's a different kind of printer, with the delta shape.
It's robust and easy to calibrate. It is also quite cheap!

Here the first print with a PET filament!

-External size : Hight : 530mm, Lenght :261mm, Depth : 285mm
-Print volume : Ø 150mm / 200mm high
-Layer thickness : from 100 to 350 microns depending on the print settings
-Material : Nozzle heat up to 270°C so PLA,  ABS, G-Fil, M-Fil, flexible filaments, PET. 1.75mm Filament
-Nominal print speed : >80mm/s
-Max movement speed : 200mm/s
-Heating bed up to 100°C
-Auto-calibration system
-eMotronic electronic board, and micro SD card
-Compatibles OS : Windows XP, Vista, 7,8,10, Ubuntu 12+, MacOs
-Repetier firmware, preconfigured for the MicroDleta Rework

To use this machine, the easiest way is to use the dedicated Reptier-Host from EmotionTech. You can download it here:

This sofware is a slicer (like Cura). It's a modified version of Repetier with the thing alreday preset for this machine. You can also launch a calibration sequence if the machine is plugged by USB.

If you don't want to use Repetier-Host and stick to Cura, create a new Printer Profile and use those infos (See the original version from Human Kit wikilab here):
