You got to flip 180 in x in order to have the flange in the bottom. I thought I had it until it started printing the flange in the air :/

I printed this and my probe is about 4mm too high off the bed. Probably due to my E3D retrofit. I tried modifying the carriage but, in typical Autodesk Fusion 360 fashion, I can't do anything with the file because it can't figure out how to undo the fillet geometry. I was going to just remove 10mm of thickness but now I think I'll leave it as is and just create a probe extension of some sort.

when i sliced it with slic3r, then looked at it with the visualation tool to look at the layering i noticed that the relief for the magnets is only 3 layers deep ( of 134) and the hole for the indicator probe is half filled in ( semicircle ) and the top rerief for the magnets is ~ 15 layers deep. Also the flange for mounting the dial indicator back is in the air ( on the top) So i tried to flip over the bracket by x 180 to get this flange on the bottom. The hole for the probe is still a semicircule ( it starts to open ar layer 42 till it gets ti layer 59 where is suddenly closes and the relied for the magnets is still 15 layers now at the bottom and none on the now top. What am I doing wrong or is the problem with slic3r?

Thats pretty slick simple but extrememly functional
