How do you arrange parts on the printing bed?

Thu Aug 29, 2013 2:18 pm

When I drop the parts in they automatically go in but I am unable to change the orientation. Some parts go in vertical and would be better if I could put them in laying down. But how to manipulate them?
I know “Alt-Left” rotates the model but in only one axis. How do I rotate in all axis and how do I lay the part flat on the printing bed? I am looking for some type of CAD functionality for positioning parts. Is there a step by step other than the Quick Start Guide?

Double Klick the model. Then you can change the position or scale the model.

Hold down Ctrl key then L mouse button and drag model or hit Arrange button, it's by the Import button.
