Orient the Model

► ORIENT THE MODEL

The orientation of the model needs to be adjusted to fit it in the build volume. With the model selected, click on the move icon in the left toolbar.

You can translate the model in the X and Y by clicking and dragging on the model.

In this case, we need to rotate the model about the X axis to fit in on the print bed. Click on the X axis rotation tool to open it, then drag the red icon to rotate the model. In this example we rotate the model 60 degrees.

You can also use the translation tools to center the model or move it to the print bed.
