Printer Axes and Move/Scale/Rotate GUI Icons

Description

"Move, Scale, and Rotate," icons are located on the left hand side of the print page. Each of these icons have arrows that you can click to manipulate an object. The axes are assigned as follows:

X-axis to the left and right directions on the print bed, while looking at the front of the Printer.

Y-axis then refers to motion from front to back

Z-axis is up and down with respect to the print bed.

 

Move

Move allows you shift the object either to the left or right (X-Axis) or to the front or back (Y-Axis). To quickly move the object around the GUI platform without the arrows, click and hold the "Right" mouse button. 

 

 

Scale

Scale enables you to resize the object about all axes. To quickly scale or resize the object while using the same aspect ratio, click and hold the "Right" mouse button. 

 

Rotate 

To quickly rotate the object about the Z-axis on the GUI platform without the arrows, click and hold the "Right" mouse button. Known software issue:The Y-axis (roll) and Z-axis (yaw) are the same, and cannot be used to do any precise adjustments.
