This is my first post here, and first time uploading an object. Does the plane (i.e angle, rotation, layout) of the object in the imaterialise grid upload display affect how it will be printed, and thus affect the price?
What I mean is, if it is shown “standing vertically upright” relative to the grid, and was printed that way, it would be nearly impossible to print without a massive amount of padding and support layers, which would be very expensive.
Do the engineers/technicians print the object exactly as it appears, with the grid representing the bed of the printer, or will they choose the most structurally optimal and “printable” orientation when loading it into a slicer for printing?
e.g., will they lay this object down on its side, which would be best, even though it looks like it’s standing upright on a small edge/tip?
