Weird angle to sit flat?

Postby Olly Oxenfree » Fri Jul 10, 2020 2:58 pm

Hi All, I have a model with a weird angle (19.44307 degrees) and I need to print from that plane.
I have used Rotate to get it close but no way to get it to sit flat on the bed. Even defining the angle 19.44307 does not help. It looks OK but when I slice and Preview, it is either just above the bed or just below the bed.

I tried Move and "On Platform" but no help.

Is there some way to have IM to sit it flat by just clicking on the Plane I need on the bed?

right click on model, choose "lay flat" and choose flat triangle on model ;)

Ahh, I knew there had to be an easy way with IM. Thanks for that.
