Build Orientation Considerations by priority:
- Best resolution of Critical features identified by customer –OR- customer dictated orientation via drawings
- Orient for best overall resolution or cosmetic appeal as long as it is appropriate for the price.
In the event there are significant concerns with pricing, please reach out to the Xometry team via email@example.com. We can confirm with the customer if they prefer the lower price, or if they would be open to a price adjustment for optimal build orientation.
- Example : A 6 inch long hollow pipe can be built on it’s side for a low price. Optimal orientation would be standing the part with the 6 inch dimension in the Z-direction for best quality, (but it may require a higher price.)
The partner can exercise discretion in these scenarios, as needed, to avoid Customer rejections
