Had a question. Some models when uploaded seem fine. But when I would go to have it printed, it wont because of some error in the model.

Is there a way to have this checked before trying to print it ?

Usally it is a thin area in hte body of the model. But there had been som eodd errors(which I didnt keep the email of) that caused the part to not be printed. Next time I get this, I will post it here.

If you are uploading your models as STLs, I would recommend grabbing a copy of Netfabb Studio Basic (free) from http://www.netfabb.com/

It has tools to allow you to measure any part of your model, and tools to detect/repair some errors in your models.
