Part is "laying" in cura but will printed as "standing"

Recommended Posts


i have a small problem i have a part that i have drawed in inventor. I exported it to a STL File. When i load this file in cura, than is this part "standing" so i rotate it 90 degrees so that the part is laying on the bed in cura. Then i go to print and my UM1 prints it in standing.

sorry my english is not very good, but i hope you know what i mean.

Thanks a lot!

This is my STL File:


So looks it in Cura:

Such large flat part will be difficult to print - it will tend to lift at the corners. You want it to stick real well so use the "brim" feature and use glue and keep the bed hot - maybe even 75C to keep it down.

Also those 2 mushroom shaped things will have some trouble - I think it will eventually recover and print the overhangs but it will be a bit ugly and need some cleanup unless you add support.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
