Model rotation too big.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Model rotation too big.

There are two things you can do...

The easiest thing is:  Within the Rotation Tool dialog you can turn off "Snap Rotation".

Next is to open the model file in something like MS 3D Builder and rotate the model there (it's a more precise rotation useful for rotating a model something like 22.5°).


A third option is to open the PY file C:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 4.11.0\plugins\Tools\RotateTool\RotateTool.py (in Notepad or the text editor of your choice) and alter this line:

"self._snap_angle = math.radians(15)" into something like "self._snap_angle = math.radians(2)".  Save the file and re-open Cura.  If/when you update Cura you would have to do that again in the new version.


The py files have been carefully written and checked so making any change can result in effects that aren't obvious at first.  The angle number displays in a Toolhint box that appears to be configured to displaying integers.  If you require an angle of 22.5° you can tell when the angle hits 22 and then again when it hits 23 but you won't know when it is at exactly 22.5°.

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
