Tweaker - The Auto Rotation module for FDM 3D printing

Hi repetiers,

I've working on an Auto Rotation module which positions 3D models into an optimal orientation to print:

It supports both a fast operation mode and a reliable mode.
The fast operation mode makes sense for using it in a GUI, like Cura's  Orientation PlugIn.

The reliable one however, is great for the use as webservice in the 3D Webservice toolchain. In Austria and Germany we are running it already as REST API in a python flask framework, invoked right before slicing.

If you are interested on how this module works, here's the link to the functional whitepaper.

I hope it will help you!


  • Nice algorithm. Will see if I can use it or a derivative. Will read the article when I get the some time for reading.
