Abstract
Delta 3D printer is a kind of 3D printer with parallel structure. It is easy to print and has wide adaptability. However, the complex installation, plugging of print head, surface quality of printed parts and quality of printing head limits the development of its application. This paper analyzes the thermodynamic characteristics of the nozzle by using Ansys Workbench. With simulation results, the printing nozzle and head is redesigned and tested. The results show that the installation of print head is more convenient and the printing quality is improved after optimization.
