Is there any other software available out there to check for non-manifold errors?

I have tried the one available on this site and also blender. But is there anything else??

Greetings;

Have a look at this tutorial:

http://www.wikkid-widgets.com/RepairingNon-manifoldmesheswit hBlender.pdf

If you are still having issues, you can post an .STL and one of of will take a look for you.

Is there anything else other than Blender for checking non main folds? Blender has been driving me crazy. There must be an easier solution to find non-manifolds.

I don't have any free applications to reccomend, but DeskArtes 3Data Expert and Magics 13 have come a long way in making these sort of errors easier to spot and rectify. Though there aren't any that will automatically fix it.

Z-Corp's ZEdit would also be able to do it (it contain tons of code from the DeskArtes program).

If the Tutorial wasn't able to help, upload an STL of your model or PM it to me and I will take a look. There are so many different situations that can cause a non-manifold issue so I can understand your frustration.
