Can anyone help me out?

I can't seem to upload any models now with the new Shapeways checker, seems to say 'non-manifold' solid no matter what I upload. Just wondering if it is because the model is too small.

Can anyone have a look at the attached file and tell me what is wrong?

Hi Madox;

Checked your model and you just had a few extra edges between some verts that were causing the problem. I removed them and did a test upload and this one works.

Thanks for that! Now I know what to look for, I'll see if Meshlab has a builtin filter for duplicate edges...

Which program did you use?

Just want to reiterate my original thank you for the pointer to the problem source.

I've been able to fix the issue with Meshlab now by running a couple of extra filters without resorting to the my personal nightmare Blender Smile

Thanks again! (I just don't like Blender... Razz)

I hear you, Blender can be more than just a little daunting to get a grip on for the uninitiated. I like Meshlab as well for a few of it's functions (filters) I just wish there was better documentation on it. Glad you figured it out! Very Happy
