definitely depends on budget, but i think creality has some pretty decently priced printers with larger print volumes (CR10 Series, Ender 5 Plus). There are certainly some much larger printers from the likes of modix but they are quite pricey.

I set up a long thin(ish) print diagonally, it's weird watching the printer put the layers down at right angles to the print as opposed to the norm which is diagonally.

Does anybody know if that affects the strength of a part? Strength is not going to matter in this case, but seeing it do that got me wondering if having the interior layers laid out diagonally against the walls has an affect......

Won't affect strength at all.

I was just taking a look at this and on that link the guy says he used PLA, so it doesnt necessarily need to be on a resin machine.
