Mesh Medic: automatic 3D printing file repair


Display comments as (Linear | Threaded)


That is great news, a real time saver! I tried the upload with a rather mangled STL ("non-manifold", "inverted normals", "open edges") and it uploaded without any problems.

Thanks for this major improvement

A real time saver. Now we can focus more on creativity and let mesh medic make the cleaning job. I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of my files that I knew had non-manifold misbehavior, was accepted by shapeways and became printable. I had been searching for soooo!!! long for a program that would do that for me and never found it. Now I don't have to search anymore.

Quote "For Rhino users it will take away an extra step in checking and converting their models" Are you accepting native rhino files without having to convert to stl?
