    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 Still, "spilt" is not considered wrong; just a little out of date.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.

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

    Cute.

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

    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.

    I presume the thermistor is an m3.

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

    Mechanicaly looks identical and use the same mechanical principles. They surely add many other functions and this is evolving.

    I'm not sure Vassili Finellis literally meant a true clone: more of a case of cloning the concept, rather than the actual physical details.

    The Creality belt printer is definitely interesting, but I think they'll have to work out some kinks before it can go mainstream. As for clone, no it's definitely a brand-new design. There have been other belt printers before using the same principles, but if you look at the blackbelt and others, they're not the same at all.

    That machine needs dual heads.
