Constant Print Direction?

Tetrahedron Shape.3mf

I am attempting to print the attached file with all depositions in a single direction (I understand this is not what is normally done for structural reasons, but it's what I'm intentionally trying to do), and scaled 50%. Below is a screenshot of my setup, I was specifically wondering if the software includes any control over shell direction. As I have already customized top/bottom pattern, infill direction, skin direction, and top/bottom line direction; those are all the features relevant to this print I could find directional controls for at https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/52343-shell.

I am using version 3.6.0, if that is relevant.
