I have imported a .stl file and want to work on it with my Cura.

When I import it onto the program it is a a steep angle to the surface and not laying flat. How can I rectify this.

The orientation depends on the orientation when the files was exported as STL. So if it is not laying flat it was also not in the right direction in the CAD software.

 

But it doesn't matter, you can freely rotate your object in Cura as you like and also push the button by the rotate tool in the left menu, to put the model flat on the bed.

This is what I mean. If you don't have that menu, then you should consider reinstalling Cura, because it should be always there.

You have to select (click) on your model first, but I guess you already found it 🙂
