awesome description. you are funny...truly funny

Mr. Azuro, what you’ve just made is one of the most insane things I have ever seen. At no point in its rambling, incoherent construction were you even close to anything that could be considered as a rational device. Everyone in this room is now less-safe for having seen it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul. LOL

...dude, I love the way you think :D

I'm glad you got it to print! Mine took about that long too.

I can't imagine Makerbot having such a limited software, but since I've never used it I can't really judge.
I'll PM you my contact info and you can send me the corrected file. Then, I can just upload it here.

Or, if you wanted to post it as a remix that wold work too.

I had to adjust the PRESS BOSS file (translate/rotate it) to make the base flat on the platform (I used Repetier-Host for this). I am printing
the base now, and will attempt to print the PRESS BOSS part in a few minutes.

I am using a Makerbot and the Maker software, and I didn't see a way to do the rotation inside the Maker Software (I haven't used this extensively). Assuming others want to print this set of objects, where could I post the PRESS BOSS with the rotation present?

Hi Chuck,

When I printed it, I used RH also. When I printed the press boss, I just rotated the file until it was sitting close to the base and the clicked the "lay flat" button. For me, this fixed the problem. Also, there might be a way to reorient the part in netfabb or blender if it is still giving you trouble. I am unfamiliar with the Makerbot software, so I can't really help there. Let me now if you still need help.

As mentioned above, I think I solved the rotation issue in the model. As far as I can tell, the Maker program has limited rotational capability. I'm almost done with the base now (it is taking 3.5 hours on a mini-Makerbot). I'll start the PRESS part in about 1/2 hour and then will see how it turns out. I'll re-post when I get the final product(s). Base looks gorgeous from here (about 85% done).
