Orientation to print the metal motor shroud

Post by SteveNZ » Wed Nov 21, 2018 5:23 am

I would like to print the Metal Motor shroud (Metal Motor Mount Shroud - Body r2.stl) from the GITHUB repository. https://github.com/MakerGear/M2/blob/ma ... y%20r2.stl

but I can't figure out the best orientation to print it. Can someone please advise.
Also for the lid.

its printed exactly as its shown in the animation with support material below, so that the ugly surface will be facing the motor and will be less visible

Thanks, I'll give a go that way, I was thinking maybe standing up with the cable outlet holes on the build plate, but that might be a little ambitious.
