I haven't used Rhino for almost 10 years. I have a simple design but the rejection emails you get as to why the model won't print are too vague for a rookie like me (first model for me).

Here is a screenshot of the project I'm working on. I uploaded a .OBJ file that was rejected. I made sure none of the parts were touching and that the parts were also of minimal printing size, so I'm not even sure where to start.

Thanks for any help guys, much appreciated Smile

Can you share the file? Or, we would at least need to know the dimensions and what material you're trying for.

Yes, I will gladly share the file. Let me know if the OBJ isn't the format you're looking for.
I was going to try for stainless steel if possible. I am looking at Accutrans and checking some things with that in the meantime since this is my first go. Smile

Thank you!

I tried to open this in Meshlab. It is just a point cloud model.
Try uploading as an STL file

Thanks Jacant.
I'm brand new to the 3D print world. I looked at the software list and supported file types on the website, that's why I thought it would work Smile
I will upload the other file type and report my findings tonight.

Steel or other metals won't allow interlocking parts and the minimum dimension has to be 3mm

Bummer! I wasn't aware of that rule about interlocking parts with metal Sad
In that case, I'll have to abort this project.
Thanks for the info. My girl is going to kill me for not having something for her birthday present, lol.

Back to the drawing board.....
