Idea for Rotate Setting

Recommended Posts

Posted · Idea for Rotate Setting

Hi, I work at a University and use CURA myself at home.

 

I have found that a lot of people seem to have a bit of difficulty with the rotate tool as it can sometimes be a bit of a pain rotating the object with the circular grab system, I'm not sure if anyone else finds this?

I have also used Makerbot Desktop quite a lot and within that, there is an option to specify what angle and which plane you wish to rotate the object in within a text box and with the option to select 90 degree intervals.

Is this something that could be integrated into CURA?

 

Apologies if this is posted in the wrong place, I couldn't find an ideas thread.

No, without pressing Shift it rotates by 15° and with pressing Shift you rotate by 1°.

It does just the opposite if you have snap rotation unchecked. Still not as good as a box to enter the rotation amount.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
