Summary0002091: 3D printer simulator - a new nodekit?
DescriptionI tried understanding how the robots example works, but as a newbie the number of external references is daunting.

I want to create a 3D printer model in freecad that shows a delta printer, although any other printer would help, but I'm using delta printer terms below.

Its shows its print volume - the area it can 3D print in, in a different color.
There are a couple of sliders to change:
Delta arm length: affects print volume width+height
Linear actuator length: affects print height, required linear bearings diameter
Base radius: affects print area
Delta arm distance: affects actuactor dimensions (the actuator is connected by 3 arm-pairs) which affects the print volume width

It looks like the 6-axis robot model was developed outside of freecad, but it would be great if such models could be developed, edited and shared through freecad!
TagsNo tags attached.

Something like http://www.thinkyhead.com/_delta/
but with a translucent print volume with some sliders.

@kunda1

This is not sketcher related.

Do we need a robot WB project?
