strange problem with part file

Post by stillcool40 »

This file comes up in rephost "flat side up" as if it's standing on one leg. No way it would print like that so I rotated it in sketchup and exported the stl. Now fails to load at all, although you can still import it back into sketchup.

can anyone turn this file flat side down in a loadable condition?

What's wrong with rotating it in Repetier-Host? Load the STL, in the placement pane enter Y=90 for "Rotation", then click the "Drop object" (down arrow) in the toolbar located above the list of loaded objects, then slice.
