    Question Which is better... X-Y on Gantry or X-Hot end/Y-Bed

    Now that I have a little experience with a behemoth printer [CubePro] with both the X and Y axis on the hot end and with direct filament drive [no bowden tube]...

    Is there a definitive study out there that outlines the pro's and con's for comparing the two different systems available where the alternative is to move X on the hotend and Y on the bed?

    Just a though experiment if nothing else.

    That is the other one... but that's Z. No I mean that you move X up high and Y down low... The difference between Cube3 and CubePro.
    Moving the hot end v. the table in Z is more of a wash. My thinking is more in the direction flying weight. Z doesn't deal with that to a great extent with the exception of Z-drop for de-stringing which can cause ringing artifacts in your prints as well.
