I'm wanting to know how a LENS printer moves to create 3D prints.
Whilst this is not a definitive answer, if you watch the video on their website, LENS 450 Systems, it is the bed that moves in the X and Y axes - the head remains static. The bed also appears to move in the Z axis, after each layer (as there is noticeable bed wobble).
However, the head is on an armature so it could be that which moves - it is not entirely clear.
Note that the MR-7 system appears to be similar to the 450, with its "3 Axis CNC Control System". However, the 850-R differs, inasmuch that it has:
- 5 Axis CNC Control System
- XYZ gantry + tilt-rotate table
which are not mentioned in the specifications of the 450 and MR-7, so the 850-R could well differ from the video.
