BLu Delta is a RepRap Kossel made by Brandon Lu.

General Advice and Precautions

It is by no means safe to operate this delta if the user wishes to consider himself a sane and rational human being.

Operating this delta would create a situation in which the user ceases to be a sane and rational human being. The user may become a robot. Or you may lose your sanity.

Either way, ask before using. The last time somebody used without asking, the extruder was clogged and needed to be unclogged through a two-hour process.

Precautions

Do not let the extruder heat up without a powered fan. The recommended fan setting is always above 20%. The printer accepts fan commands in pulse-width-modulated counts ranging from 0 to 255. Always set the printer to a count of 51 or more counts when the extruder is heated up or it is expected to heat up.
