Hey all Im new to 3d printing. I bought a cheap printer clone (prusa i3). It actually prints surprisingly well for most small prints. I asked a couple days ago about printing out a full 6 hexapod and downloaded the files from thingiverse.
I am using cura 15.04 which I believe is the newest cura software. My question is , can I change the orientation in which a part is printed. For instance when I try to print six's feet they want to print standing up. About halfway through the print they fall over and if not watching on a regular basis I waste a bunch of filament. I tried the gluestick on blue painters tape but it ended up still falling over. Is there a way in cura to lay the part down (more horizontally) and try printing it that way? Thanks for any help. BTW I am trying to do this with PLA if that makes a difference.
