Thanks for the offer, but I can certainly "fix" this myself.

Might be a junior who rejects pretty much everything he gets.

I am mostly concerned about the number of weird rejections that we received recently ("model has holes" and alike) and the unnecessary delays that is always causes. Another 4 days lost for b*llsh*t.

2 shells means that your object consists of two seperate parts.
I've had a rejection mail on this "2 shells" once before as well, although normally they should accept that, since it's not really an error.

lol... aren't you the lucky one

http://www.stop4stuff.com/shapeways/images/1842-shells-capture.jpg

That is the only 'error' in my model... and there is supposed to be 1842 shells as the design is a chain maille style piece... from what I have found out, the error kicks up due to a relationship between the number of shells and the number if triangles.

Your rejection image there, does look like operator confusion - Did you hit reply on your email and ask why?

Yeah, I mean... it would be great if someone explained to us why now sometimes multiple "shells" are treated like an error?

I mean, you can have separate or partially overlapping objects in your STL, right? As long as each "shell" is watertight - why would multiple shells be a problem?

Some objects can have hundreds of these - I certainly hope we don't have to boolean them together from now on - good luck with that.

meshmedic issue?

Another one today. Looks like operator confusion to me.
