The Auto-Rotate module for FDM 3D Printing "Tweaker"
The efficiency of FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) 3D printing is influenced by the orientation in which the printed object is positioned on the printing platform. The Tweaker is an open source python module which finds an optimal orientation for an object on a 3D printer's printing platform. The Tweaker can be regarded as an auto-rotate function, invocable from software as well as from a web-service to facilitate the workflow in a cloud-based manufacturing scenario as 3D Hubs is.

Thanks for the tip. I’ve forwarded it to the development team working on this part as part orientation is definitely important to us.
