Perhaps I am not understanding this, but when we open Preform 1.1 and go to a Layout view, “Front” is marked to the Left of the build platform and “Hinge Side” is marked at the bottom (South quadrant). Should the “Hinge Side” not be marked to the Right of the build platform (East quadrant)? We’re understanding “hinge Side” to mean the hinge of the lid, unless this is referring to the ‘hinge’ of the mechanism that hinges the tray internally? (see attached photo)
A response from Rachel at Formlabs reads:
Thank you for writing in about this. After my colleague and I stared at PreForm and
an operating Form 1 for several moments, we concluded that the labeling in PreForm
is in fact accurate (yeah, it took us awhile). The layout in PreForm is
nonintuitive, but it is correctly labeled. The “front” of the build platform
corresponds to the left side of the PreForm grid, meaning that the hinge side
corresponds to the bottom of the PreForm grid.
I hope this makes sense!
