index.php?t=getfile&id=29580&private=0Hello All,
I uploaded a .stl from Sketchup 8. It is a model of a building for model railroading. The model is not the whole building but just one wall, it has several doors on the first floor and six windows on the second floor. I view the model in Sketchup, everything is fine. I view the .stl with easyview .stl viewer, again, everything looks perfectly normal. I upload to Shapeways and 4 of 6 second floor windows are sealed over in the model viewer, their window sill which protrude are still there, but the windows themselves are gone. Does anyone know what this problem is? I tried searching but I didn't find anything. See attached photos

Model created in:
Sketchup 8

Previewed Normal in:
Easyview .stl Viewer
