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.
