    You can use a 3d printer upside down if you want. ,,Clive

    Im no expert as I haven't even hot the bits yet but I'd be fairly certain a 3d printer does not care about orientation due to the extremely small clearances involved. It's not like inkjet where the ink flies through an air gap, the plastic extruded is sort of smeared onto the work as the gap is only around 0.4 to 0.1mm, I'm aiming for 0.2 to 0.1mm layer height on mine.

    I just thought it would have to be flat as I've not seen one in any other orientation?

    I would actually interested in this if I thought my 3020 machine was suitable.
