#15 serveral parts oriented wrong


Serveral of the Mendel-Parts are on their side or on their head and cannot be printed as they are in the SVN.

    Given the ease with which parts can be flipped about an axis before printing, is this a problem?

    If you are printing not one parts but 94 it is at the very least a simple and effective improvement
    that help people get mendel parts out there and helps usability of the project.
    A less experienced user, now knowing about the teardrops, may not even know the best orientation
    for some of the more "square" parts.

    Because usability IS important.

    Good point. If you upload a zip/tgz of the aoi and stl files with the attached file button, I will certainly do the replacement.

    I´ll prepare it this week and also try to localize as many of the other small improvements I can find
    by scanning thingiverse.
    Like almost everyone else I know I´m not using AOI but am working with the STL-files and real software.
