I am having a problem with my models' proper orientation after they are downloaded to Shapeways. When I open the Sketchup8 file or the Accutrans file, the model is shown on the correct axis and are shown sitting properly on it's base. Only after downloaded to Shapeways is the model sitting on it's end rather than it's base. I've altered the axis configuration in Accutrans before downloading to Shapeways but the model is still standing on it's end, only now it sits on the OTHER end. The photos below show the position of the model as it appears in Sketchup8 and Accutrans with the correct axis config, only to be standing on it's side in Shapeways. Any thoughts? Thank you.
