THIS IS THE CHEAPEST and probably BEST solution to replace a print surface on a large Delta printer.
This is a pretty simple fix!
To do this, you will need:
1 EA 2 PACK 12 in round glass – about 305MM or right at 12 inches.
3 EA 40MM Buttonhead M3 Cap screws – Here’s a kit
Some Masking Tape
and a razor blade
My friend’s printer arrived with broken glass. HE3D told him to pound sand. I wedged a square mirror in for a few months and got by until it broke.
Step 1: Prep the bed
Get your screw kit out.. you need to lower the profile of the existing bolts just a bit..
Replace the silver with the black..
Add 2 layers of masking tape to the bed.
Cut the holes out to let the new bolt heads through.
Step 2: Prep the Glass!
Scrape the rubber nubs off with a razor.
Scratch it up real good with sand paper, install and level.
Step 3: Finish Prep.
Calibrate your printer..
Step 4: Lube it up!
Heat it up and lube with some Elmer’s Glue Stick https://amzn.to/2ndUig6
And get printing!
