"Taller printers make it harder to prevent Z wobble, though with a

Perhaps more importantly, tall, thin prints are not very strong (the
interface between layers is the weakest part) and printing very tall
is likely to increase the print time more than printing very wide."
I thought there might be an issue like this ... I wonder if
something like this would work, although not terribly elegant:
-The printing process stops at a level beyond which might cause
-The operator then screws forward built in clamps to meet the sides of
the print. Perhaps there would be a threaded clamp foot that would
approach from four directions.
-The printing process is instructed to continue...
