How to rotate files and adjust supports.
We do our best to share files that will be easy to print, but sometimes some files just don't seem to play nicely! There are some variables at work. We've occasionally found that different filament colors will behave slightly differently. Every now and then we get a file that does better printing at a different resolution. The more your play and print the more you learn! Here is a quick guide to rotating files and adjusting supports if you've not yet played around with these! We will demonstrate with the Mini Beth and Curtis Passengers for the Safari Car using our Flash Forge slicer (the software that came with the printer.)
The resulting print was of good quality. I popped off the supports with needle nose pliers and had no trouble getting the passengers to fit into the car. Good luck! Let us know how it turns out for you!
