Hi folks,

I got a simple stupid question, but i cant find the answer.
How do i change the way objects are printed (horizontally or vertically)
It must be a setting in slic3er but i cant find it.

You need to do it before Slic3r gets hold of it. Netfabb for instance will allow you to rotate models anyway you wish.

Slicer lets you rotate STLs around the Z axis with its Plater/45ccw|45cw|rotate buttons.

Netfabb lets you rotate around X,Y or Z with its rotate tool.

To use these tools to rotate a part from horizontal to vertical, you could open it in Netfab, rotate 90 degrees around X or Y, export it as STL, then open the new file in slicer.
