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?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
