I use varicad for 3d

I drew a manifold , and its not very watertight

I then used various meshing programs , meshlabs, Gmsh, netgen

I use these for Calculix ( an engineering software )

The manifold meshed well in Netgen and Gmsh

but in Blender if was 100 non manifold , full of problems ( 1 or 2 I can accept but this would be quicker to redraw ! )

So it maybe the output of Varicad ?

anyway any suggestions to produce a watertight drawing?

Hi Stephen,

it's hard to tell from an image - could you send the file to service@shapeways.com? We'll see what we can do for you.
