If when I upload my design, it is shifted into the wrong axis and front is right or something where it's just off, will it be printed the way it is uploaded, or will the program search for the best position to print the object on.
I know it's a slaughtered question I'm not sure how to explain what I'm seeking. If anyone can help, thanks!

Currently parts are printed in the orientation that the printer operator sees as the best orientation.
