What Orientation Should This Be Printed In?

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a little project and i need this handle to print. Seeing how weird of a shape it is, it's printing a little odd. I've tried printing it as is and upright with support, but the former lifted off the bed as it had very little holding it down and the latter was pretty deformed. Would using a brim and printing it on its side help?

EDIT: I'm an idiot. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:629694

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
