First go at printing this was OK. The problem I had was the item wobbling. I've seen comments about adding supports (which I can do as I'm running Simplify3D) and a larger raft, but I'm quite sure that won't help 100% as the item needs to keep really still due to its height, otherwise the top will look uneven, and in my case an entire layer had gaps and was weak. I'm considering adding some brace support into the design, e.g. like a buttress. But surprised no-one has suggested this already, so unsure if that's the way forward.
When people suggest turning it 90 degrees, do they mean printing it flat, e.g. the 4 land gear feet will be the first layer ?
