Have you tried enabling support and setting the overhang threshold to something near 90
Ã‚Â°? The support should stabilize your print. I think you can increase the support spacing for that purpose, but I never even made a print with support yet, so I don't know what I'm talking about here ;)
Also, you can import the stl into a CAD program (I would use openSCAD, but it's entirely up to y
ou) and turn it around or add your own support however you want ;)
I use Slic3r. Either the piece will bend over a little after 2/3 which means the rest will be out of sync, or it will fall over completely while printing in thin air :-(
I have ruined 8 of them already.
AWESOME! I just uploaded an MCP model @ http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... and after adding the Tron tag found your Light Cycle; man, very very nice!
Tron on baby!

All of these parts have printed very successfully for me without rafts or support. The one place on the front wheel that needs support, has it built into the STL file. After printing you just trim off the small support wall.
This kit also uses 3mm pins to align parts. Because I am still printing with 3mm filament, I just cut short 6mm long sections to use as pins. If you have a Replicator, or print with 1.75mm filament, I have provided a file to print a set of pins.
The parts for this model are separated into groups by color to replicate the design of the movie Lightcycle. The frame and wheel hubs should be gray, the windows and wheel covers black, and the wheels and body another color like blue or red for example. Of course, there are no rules.
