I’ve yet to see/own a 3D printer myself but seen the current design, I’ve been wondering about some technical choices.
It seems like most of the current DIY 3D printers have an extruder moving on 2 axis and the heating bed on another axis.
I’m a bit concerned by the impact of having an important axis such as the X (or Y) driving the material back and forth.
From a newbie point of view, I feel concerned by getting the still hot material wobbling back and forth.
Some newer designs have the bed moving along the Z axis and X/Y are reserved to the extruder which seems more traditional (just like you would manually add matter to a still base). I assume that moving the bed along X was a cost and simplicity choice but how does the prints remain good with this design ? Is it software handled, or the curing is so fast that it doesn’t matter ?
Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge
