Layflat Feature. Bug? or Normal

Recommended Posts

Hi All

When I import an object into Cura 2.4 it is often not in the best orientation for printing. I use the rotate feature to turn it to a better orientation. The trouble I'm having, is that if I turn it in one axis, and then use the 'Layflat' button to be sure it is sitting flat on the buildplate, it is turned some random amount around the vertical axis. This is frustrating if I am trying to orient a part to another so they can share a support tower, or to make room for other objects. Is this normal behaviour?

Pete

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
