Questions tagged [belt-printer]

Belt Printers, aka Printer Mills differ from normal printers in their geometry and functioning: The bed of such a printer mill, the Y direction, does move in one direction only during printing, while the printhead moves on a tilted plane in both X and Z. Models need a special slicer to be made for Belt Printers and design constraints are different due to the non-cartesian coordinate system.
