Best fit parts in a coreXY

I have a doubt, in a CoreXY printer. What is the optimal way to place the pieces to be printed in the slicer?
The why of the question. In a Cartesian printer, when a motor rotates, X or Y, the head moves in that Axis, so the optimal way to place the part is aligned with these axes. But in a CoreXY, the movement system is different, when 1 motor rotates, it moves diagonally, it seems logical to think that the best way to place a piece is rotated in Z, 45 degrees.
- Is that so? or does it matter?

What do you want to optimize? If you want to use the motors as little as possible, the 45° orientation is ideal, since you then only use one motor. But mostly the artifacts in the print come from the mechanics and the weight in the X and Y axis. and for this it is better if the component is aligned straight because then only one axis is moved.

What is "optimal" about aligning prints with direction of motion of a single motor?

..........and given that infill is usually at 45 degrees (or some other angle) to X and Y, there is only one situation where a single axis motor would be employed at any given time, and that would be a hollow cube with the sides orientated at 45 degrees to X and Y
