    There is a free slicer for belt printers. I can't recall the name now. If someone recalls.....

      Here is my "new" all metal hot end builded from old hot end parts, the new all metal throat and a new hot end block. Cost? 6€

        I presume the thermistor is an m3.

          My suspicion is that it comes down to how the model is oriented on the slicer's build plate. I think it follows that the model can't be placed flat on the plate. I suspect, if the printer has the Z axis tilted over at 45°, then the model would have to be tilted on the build plate @ 45°. Also, I suspect, if the model is longer than it is wide, it should be oriented so the long axis runs the same direction as the belt.

            I see your logic. It seems there is a lot of possibility for these printers that hasn't been exploited yet. I seems they could have two or more x axes each with duel heads giving you a four or more head printer with all the variations of colour and material type.

              Cute.

              FYI, there is no such word as "builded" in English. The correct word is "built".

                  Actually is oriented flat on the bed just like in ordinary slicer. The slices are in an angle of 45 deg.

                    YW. Of course, with English, it gets ridiculously complicated. For example, when you spill something, the older word was "spilt", which goes well with "built". But, these days, most people say "spilled", which doesn't go so well. Still, "spilt" is not considered wrong; just a little out of date.

                      Modern English. Same as rest of languages.
