    Question Help with Kossel Delta Assembly


    I bought a Kossel 3D printer DIY kit from Amazon by AnyCubic and have been able to follow most of the instructions, however I'm confused about a few parts and wanted to seek help.

    This is the printer I bought:

    If you know answers to any of these questions, please post

    1. So, these parts came with the assembly kit but I'm not sure what they're or where they should go -

    2. This said 3D printer accessory but I'm not sure what the purpose of it is -

    3. Another part that I'm not sure how to use -

    4. I don't know how to connect the power supply to the printer. This is what the power supply looks like -, and this is what the possible connections on the printer look like -, (I can post a clearer image if needed) (will eventually cable manage better). I do have a 3 prong plug and think I know how to connect the power supply to the wall outlet - but not to the printer. These are some of the cables they sent (if it helps) -

    5. Lastly, this is the heatbed I have and wanted to know if it can be connected to the same power supply (the power supply is AC) -

    6. I am not sure what this adapter is for - I was able to connect the wires without it -

    I'll highly appreciate help!

    I'm pretty sure #1 & #3 is a stand to hold a spool of filament.
    #2 can wrap the wires (heater block & thermister, which look like the cables in #4) going to your extruder.

    #4 the red/black cables should be used to connect 12V output of the power supply to the board. Please be careful to connect correctly the Negative and Positive correctly, or else the board will burn instantly.

    The white cable with the thermistor on the end is to be connected to the head element for the temperature sensor.

    #5 the heated bed is connected to the main board the same way as the heated element of the head but on another connector. You should have on the instructions which plugs to use. That heated bed is 12V, don't connect to the AC mains!

    #6 is the connector for the display when using the RAMPS board. You don't have the RAMPS so thats why you don't need that adaptor.
