Slicing at an angle (45'') with XXXXL printer

Posted (edited) · Slicing at an angle (45'') with XXXXL printer

Hi Guys,


I'm currently designing and testing (at small scale) a XXXL 3D printer.

I want to print at a 45'' degree angle (like a belt printer) but with the big size of the printer it is not possible to angle the whole system 45''.

I only want to change the hotend / nozzle in a 45'' angle. This is currently not possible with any of the standard slicers.


Does anybody have an option or idea to print with a 'normal' cartesian printer with a 45'' tilted nozzle?

Would love to be able to do this with Cura.

PS: anybody who's wondering.. the printer will have a print volume of WxHxL: 3,5 x 2,9 x 12 meters with a 10mm nozzle


Kind regards,

Sten Kluts

Finally hired a company from the Netherlands, DotX. To build the slicer for me. 


So for anyone with the same problem / questions... DotX got the answer for a good price.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
