Hi,

I am having an issue with a model upload. My model called 'MoirePattern Chassis' is showing a triangle prism missing from its geometry. I used COLLADA format exported from Google Sketchup v8.0.4811. If I import the COLLADA model into Sketchup, it looks like the original file before export.

The first two images below are renders from Sketchup. The last image is a screenshot from the website, how Shapeways has rendered it after upload.

The model is here online: http://www.shapeways.com/model/358725/moirepattern_chassis.h tml?gid=ug

Please let me know any thoughts!

Best,

Ted

It looks like you have overlapping geometry in there. seeing those two faces are overlapping, shapeways removes them. I'd extend one face a little into the other, shapeways will automatically fuse the 2 sets of geometry that way

I removed the shared edges and the model renders correctly! Wonderful, thanks for the thought, Youknowwho4eva

Below is what the model looks like now, and how it renders on Shapeways. woohoo!
