|Another non-manifold question [message #3632] Mon, 30 March 2009 05:00 UTC
Hi. I'm trying to upload a file created in Sketch Up, then saved in Meshlab, but I keep getting the Non-Manifold error. I have saved it in .stl and .dae extensions. |
Now I know there are lots of questions regarding this same topic, I have gone through all of them and as far as I know I have done all recommended. But I keep getting it. The error may be there, but I just don't get it. Could I get someone's advice so I can keep uploading? Thanks!

I was able to upload this .stl with no problems.
I don't know what I did that you didn't do. All I did was:
1) Export the model from SketchUp in .dae format.
2) Open the .dae in Meshlab
3) Save the model as an .obj
4) Close Meshlab
5) Open the .obj in Meshlab
[Check for non-manifold]
6) Save the model as an .stl
7) Upload to Shapeways
I don't know if saving as an .obj helped. I do know, however, that saving as an .obj triangulates the model. *shrug*
(Also, I uploaded the model with dimensions in mm and the model was going to cost $0.08. Either those weren't the right dimensions or there was some scaling problem introduced in the process.)
