Is a 5-Axis Prusa 3D Printer on the To-Do List?

Is a 5-Axis Prusa 3D Printer on the To-Do List?

Are there any plans for a 5-axis printer, where the bed can tilt on 2 axes? Such a printer could eliminate any issues that currently exist with overhang or bridging.

Some time ago, I read an article about someone who made a 5-axis 3D printer as a thesis project, so it is doable.

If a 5-axis printer is not yet on your list of future Prusa printer projects, please add it to the list.

This is a users forum, very few of the Prusa devs ever visit.

To make suggestions go to Prusa's github page.

Going to go out on a limb here...

I don't think betting the company on a one-off thesis project is the best strategy. It would be interesting to see, but I personally don't think FFF printing will be the leading tech in a few years.
