Advantages of a timing belt driven Z-axis:
Most 3D printer systems use a lead screw or a threaded rod as drive for the Z-axis. Backlash and imbalances causes errors in X- and Y-direction when moving the Z-axis. These errors are visible as a vertical pattern on the printed object.
When using two timing belts as attachment for the Z-axis these errors can be cleverly avoided. Consequently the Z-axis is nearly error free, thus the layers of a printed object sit perfectly on top of each other.
Advantages of a DualX 3D printer:
In many cases dual 3D printers work with two printheads on one carriage. While one nozzle prints, the second print head might scratch on the freshly printed layers or drop unwanted plastic into the printed object.
DualX allows to handle this problem very smartly: Using two completely independent X-carriages allows this 3D printer to park one printhead besides the printbed, while the other one is printing. As soon as the first printhead has finished its layer, the printheads change their positions and the second prints, while the first one parks. Poor scratch marks or plastic drops don't even occur.
