Nothing quite captures the imagination like a Delta style 3D printer in action.  The UltiBots D300VS is a fun kit to assemble and print from.  It has a 300mm heated bed with an aluminum heat spreader and Kapton Heater. This kit uses a PG35L geared motor directly mounted to the effector.  Our Micro Extruder is compact, lightweight, proven and prints flexible materials like NinjaFlex and TPU.  It is unlike Bowden tube style extruders because the filament is fed directly into the E3D Hot End. Together with V-Slot extrusion and wheels this kit is straight forward and less complicated to build compared to many FFF 3D printers.

NOTE: Due to popular demand current lead time is 2 - 3 weeks.

We recommend these other items:

*** Not all companies publish Z height correctly. Z height varies from the Peak Z to the Perimeter Z. Be sure to research and compare TRUE Z heights. D300VS Peak Z = 445mm and Perimeter Z = 385mm. Peak Z = max Z height when all carriages are in the home position. Perimeter Z = max Z height when the print nozzle is over the outer perimeter and one carriage is in the home position.

THE DESIGN IS GENERALLY STATIC BUT IMPROVEMENTS ARE POSSIBLE. PERSONAL SUPPORT DURING YOUR BUILD, LEVELING, AND CALIBRATION IS AVAILABLE. DUE TO THE LARGE SIZE OF THE KIT, ECONOMICAL USPS SHIPPING IS NOT AVAILABLE TO ALL COUNTRIES. WE ARE WORKING WITH FEDEX TO RESOLVE THIS.

  1. Surprisingly Novice Friendly

    Posted by Chuck on 13th Jun 2017

    I am new to 3D printing, owning a small budget printer for less than two weeks before picking up a D300VS. I did quite a bit of research and decided it had the best combination of components and features I could find, based on my limited experience with printing.

    When it arrived, it appeared incredibly daunting at first glance; the kit consists of an army of bagged parts and metal extrusions. Everything in the kit, however, was carefully packaged and labeled. Once I got started, I was no longer intimidated, as the instructions are clear and organized. I never found myself confused as to what to do, and only a few steps in the build were in any way challenging or annoying : 1) I misaligned the base triangle on the first go due to an uneven build surface (my fault), 2) the first belt tensioning required a lot of hand strength (I am spindly), 3) the whip soldering is a bit laborious, but reasonable. I feel going through the long build process has given me a much better understanding of how the machine is constructed, which I hope will translate into easier troubleshooting in the future.

    As soon as the printer was finished and commissioned per the instructions, it printed better than my starter printer. It has required minimal tweaking--based on the Slic3r profiles available on the Facebook group--for my particular filament to produce gorgeous prints. I am also in love with the Duet interface for managing the printer; you have all the information and control you could want at your fingertips without the possible unreliability of a direct computer connection.

    Overall, this appears to be an incredible value. As a newcomer to the hobby, I couldn't be happier.


  2. Fantastic kit, support and community

    Posted by Chris on 3rd Jun 2017

    I was going to give a very wordy, detailed review and then thought - "no one will read this." Which would be a shame as I currently own 7 printers, including 2 Prusa MK2s and this is, by far, my favorite printer.

    So here is the short version:

    I was worried that I wasn't up to the task of building the D300VS but the current build guide makes this almost as easy as assembling a lego kit. It's one of the best build guides I have ever followed.

    Community support and personal attention to users from Brad is top notch and I have never failed to get an answer within hours of asking a question.

    The components are best in class and it shows in the prints. The Duet Wifi interface makes every other interface I've used look primitive - and is something I wish every printer I owned had.

    I simply love this thing. It ticks all the right boxes for what a 3D printer and the people behind it should be.


  3. excellent printer kit, exceeded my expectations. fantastic support

    Posted by glass n3rd on 19th May 2017

    this is my second 3d printer, first one was a bare bones kit that required so many upgrades in order to work half decent it was a total rip off. this kit already has all the upgrades, it's actually a proper kit! my prior printer had a horrible system in place for leveling the bed, a junky extruder, awful controller and an array of mechanical issues. you get what you pay for, and this kit is quality!

    this printer has a 10/10 build guide, along with a forum and facebook group that provide very quick and very good support! the kit takes time to assemble, it's easy just pretty slow, a few parts are tough but if you get stuck there is plenty of help available.

    once setup correctly this printer is amazing! you get what you pay for, and this is top notch!


  4. Amazing quality, both in the build and the resulting prints

    Posted by Colin Pedersen on 9th May 2017

    Absolutely amazed by this printer. It took me a few days of work in order to get it working, but that likely would have been shortened if I had any previous experience with delta printers. Before the build guide was released I probably would have had a hard time recommending the kit, but with the build guide that was recently released by Michael Hackney, I believe that anyone could put this together, assuming they have a basic knowledge of soldering and a bit of patience.

    My first prints on the D300VS did not come out great, and I was a bit bummed after putting so much time into it. I posted about my problems on the forum and Brad was very quick in helping me figure out what the issue was. Turns out, it was completely user error on my part, I just didn't seat the hot end properly. As soon as I did what Brad told me, I was blown away by the quality of prints that I was getting with very minimal further calibration. Not only are you getting excellent quality parts with the kit, but the support from Ultibots and the community around this printer are also great. I have no problems recommending this kit to others, and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.


  5. The Printer Kit to Beat all Printer Kits

    Posted by Devon on 3rd May 2017

    The D300VS is my third kit and is far and away the most superior machine you can find anywhere close to this price point. It's incredibly fast and thanks to the motors, stepper drivers, and solid construction, it's very, very quiet.

    The packaging of the kit blew me away once I opened the boxes. Everything is meticulously packed and accurately labelled, making the installation far easier than any other kit I've come across so far.

    I'm so happy with this printer that I've stopped looking around at other ones and because the UltiBots team knows what they're doing, I'm not even having to waste my time looking for upgrades for it. And to top it all off, they've got amazing customer service.


  6. My First 3D Printer

    Posted by Matt on 2nd May 2017

    This was my first 3D printer. I was debating between this and the Prusa i3 MK2. There were many pros and cons to each, but what ultimately made me choose this was the components that made up the printer were just so much better than the Prusa.

    I put it together without the build guide, which was a little difficult, but if you have some mechanical background, it was really straight forward. First print was a little off, but a little calibrating and all my prints have been great so far. I love the huge build space and now with the forum, build guide and facebook help, getting it dialed in perfectly is easy.

    I would definitely recommend this printer to anyone new or old to the 3D printing world.


  7. Amazing Delta!

    Posted by Vic on 1st Mar 2017

    Everything about this machine screams high quality from the electronics to the hardware Brad did an excellent job at piecing together an amazing printer and it shows. As a previous owner of a Rostock MAX V2 I am absolutely blown away by the D300VS. The the days of spending hours trying to calibrate my machine only to get mediocre prints are gone, this thing just prints and it does it beautifully. If your in the market for a delta backed by some excellent support then look no further this is your printer!


  8. Amazing machine, great support

    Posted by Bill M on 24th Jan 2017

    TLDR - Get yours now before the rest of the community notices this printer and you have a 6+ week lead time like Prusa!

    If this printer had a more detailed assembly guide, it would be the Prusa Mk2 of delta's. While researching my next printer, I was ready to go with the Rostock Max V3 from SeeMeCNC, but couldn't shake the disatisfaction with the wood used in the frame. Delta's are a 'simple' design so I decided to see if I could self source all the parts, as I put together my components list, I stumbled on this hidden gem of a printer. Every component I had selected from all the top threads on delta's was already in this beast with no chance of me missing something crucial. After a couple questions, which Brad answered via a phone call, his passion for the kit and knowledgable answers quickly convinced me that this was the way to go.

    The assembly took me a couple evenings - maybe 12 hours total with only a few snags (because I didn't read the directions well enough). All issues past first print were completely self inflicted, but Brad helped with them and got me back up and printing in no time.

    My short list of changes for the printer are to swap out the extruder fan with a heatsink (also sold here) so I can software control the LEDs. And looking for a way to seal in the electronics compartment so nothing falls in there. As another reviewer said, I'd love to see the Panel Due as an option - but I'm not convinced it's worth another $100 to the price. Use any old phone or tablet you have laying around, it'll work just as good.


  9. Wow, this is a great printer!

    Posted by Steve L on 11th Jan 2017

    This was my first 3D printer build, and I spent quite a bit of time researching printers before I pulled the trigger on the D300VS. I became captivated by the simplicity and elegance of the Delta style printers, and I soon decided that I wanted to build one. I'm somewhat of a perfectionist, but I'm also budget conscious. I was torn between purchasing a cheap printer initially and upgrading it over time, or spending more up front for a higher quality printer that I knew I would be happy with. The D300VS hit all of the items on my wish list.

    The main selling points for me were:
    1) Duet WiFi controller, which has a sleek web browser based control interface and quiet TMC2660 stepper drivers.
    2) Quality (E3Dv6) all metal hotend. (I've read that the hotends provided with many cheap printers are complete garbage)
    3) Lightweight direct extruder that will allow me to print flexible materials without the issues associated with Bowden tubes.
    4) Super beefy 2040 towers, and aluminum extruded corners so that the frame is accurate and rigid.
    5) FSR system for auto-leveling the bed.

    The printer arrived right on time, 10 days after I placed the order. I was initially surprised at the small size of the package, but it turns out the printer was packed in 2 separate boxes, and one of them arrived before the other. The contents were packed well, and none of the parts were damaged. I was absolutely amazed at the attention to detail shown by Ultibots when packing the printer parts. All of the small parts (literally hundreds of them!) were grouped together logically into separate bags. Each bag came with a printed label that categorizes the group of parts, and an itemized list of all the parts contained within it.

    I assembled the printer over the course of several days, spending a few hours each day. I'm glad my son was around to help, because some of the steps are easier with 2 people, especially the bottom and top frame "triangles". All of the information required to build the printer is located in the K250VS build guide (on google drive), in the D300VS YouTube videos, or in the ever-growing Q&A document. I did have a few questions, which were answered promptly either through the Q&A document, the Ultibots support email, or via phone calls. Throughout the process, Brad was very responsive to my questions, and I really appreciated his willingness to call me up and talk through some of the questions that I had. Any chance I'd get support like that if I purchased a cheap Chinese kit? No way!! This level of support completely makes up for the lack of a comprehensive single-source build manual.

    I did have one issue while building the kit: One of the 9 aluminum carriage wheel spacers was 1 millimeter too short. I sent Brad a note, and he shipped out a replacement ASAP. It took the part a few days to arrive (I discovered the problem on Christmas eve), but that didn't slow me down. In order to continue building, I just used a couple washers to shim the wheel spacing temporarily, until the correct spacer arrived.

    The printer is now fully assembled, and is creating beautiful parts. The FSR auto-level feature on the Duet controller works like a charm! I've read that many people prefer manual leveling using a "paper friction test" at several points on the bed, saying that it gives better results than auto leveling. I'm happy to report that manual leveling is not necessary with the D300VS. After performing auto-level, I tweaked the Z probe offset with a single paper friction test at the center of the bed, and encoded the Z offset using the G31 command. I then checked several points around the bed at Z=0, and the paper friction was the same at each point!

    If I could change anything about the kit, I'd request that Brad adds PanelDue as an option (I've since added a 7" PanelDue screen to the printer, so that I can monitor prints when my laptop is in the other room). It would also be nice if the kit included a PEI sheet for the bed, as that was another one of my immediate "upgrades".

    In summary, I'm very happy with the D300VS. It was fun to build, it creates beautiful prints, it's very quiet, and it looks cools as s#$t! Support from Ultibots is top-notch, and I'd definitely recommend this printer to anyone who is interested in building from a kit.


  10. Beast of a machine!

    Posted by Jim on 5th Jan 2017

    I compared a lot of 3D printers and kits before deciding to purchased the D300VS from Ultibots.com. When looking at component selection, controller, and build volume, nothing else came close. It was an easy choice. The one thing I was worried about was the lack of a true manual. Fear not, the build instructions and youtube videos are easy enough to follow. I am a first time kit builder and 3D Printer owner and I had only a few small head scratches. Ultibots support was on top of my questions in a very short time. First few prints were very nice and I've been running it for 8 hours a day since! Overall, I couldn't be happier. Thanks Brad!!
