Align prints in the x/y direction?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Align prints in the x/y direction?

Is there a known way to exactly align a surface parallel to the x or y plane? I can get my parts to sit how I want in the Z direction thanks to the align to build plate feature but there is no option for a second surface alignment. As far as I know you have to try to get it close by rotating manually.

    I don't know of such an option. Perhaps you can try to align to Z, and then repeat 2 more times for all edges? There is a convenient option in the rotate menu where you can select the face to align to the build plate.

    I just tried and it seems to work.
