|Short Edges [message #66167] Mon, 15 April 2013 20:40 UTC
I am trying to print a model I built in rhino, and I have uploaded it to the Shapeways and keep getting an error message without an actual description. I used the "meshrepair" function in Rhino and got this message, so i'm assuming this is the problem...but I don't know what it means... any ideas? Thanks!|
This is a bad mesh.
Here is what is wrong with this mesh:
Mesh has 4 extremely short edges.
General information about this mesh:
Mesh does not have any degenerate faces.
Mesh does not have any non manifold edges.
Mesh does not have any naked edges.
Mesh does not have any duplicate faces.
Mesh does not have any faces with directions different from the mesh as a whole.
Mesh does not have any self intersecting faces.
Mesh does not have any disjoint pieces.
Mesh does not have any unused vertices.

Have you tried netfabb yet ? I have no idea what your model should look like, but all I see is bits and pieces |
(more like points on a hook-shaped 2D curve) distributed over a huge range of coordinates, far away from the origin.
I'd say your fix eliminated both the problem and the data...
