I had issues with my model (made in maya) so I export as .OBJ and into MeshLab (look good with color texture) and export into .Stl to fix in Netfabb. I was able to to correct many of the problem but once it goes out as .stl and comes back into Meshlab I seem to lose the texture mapping (wanted to export a fixed .obj in color) . I want to do a full color sandstone - Any advise on this issue?

Thanks
Orlando

.stl format does not have colour info. If you can, use a format such as those specified by SW for Color printing: DAE, WRL, X3D, X3DB, X3DV.

but Netfabb (I think) can only input .stl to fix - I was following this
https://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/how_to_use_meshlab_and_n etfabb

I did try bringing in .obj into Netfabb which worked but still not keeping texture.

I am guessing that if I messing with mesh via netfabb I need to recreate UV and reapply texture in Maya?

Polygonica can automatically heal meshes whilst retaining colour.
