FLSUN S1 and T1: Enclosed High-Speed Delta 3D printers
This week, I was contacted by FLSUN on the occasion of the launch of two new 3D printer models. FLSUN S1 and T1 adopt a delta design and enclosed full metal frame structure. Besides the different build volumes, these two machines have many other significant differences, which is expected as the S1 costs two times more than the T1.
Besides the smaller footprint, the most important advantage of Delta 3D printers over Cartesian-style (X, Y, Z) machines is the higher printing speed due to the smaller movements needed to create the same model.
Priced at $1,299, the FLSUN S1 is the company’s new flagship model. It promises 1200mm/s max speed and 40000mm/s acceleration. Its all-metal hot-end can reach up to 350℃ temperatures, allowing the use of industrial-grade filaments. It has a 320*320*430 mm build volume. Like most delta printers, it uses a circle print platform instead of a rectangular one used by cartesian machines. To ensure printing quality and…
