I have a design that the file format I have for it is the STL file and I'm having a hell of a time getting Shapeways to make the part for me. Several of the details on the model were too small to print so I was able to figure out how to delete those details using Meshlab .... but now I am left one last "error" that I cannot get past; The trailing edge of the wing is too thin,,, of course it comes to a sharp point as all wings should ... but Shapeways refuses to run the part as long as that's the case.

I am out of solutions as to how to make the wing thicker at the trailing edge. Any ideas?

If the trailing edge of the wing was thicker I could get it printed and then sand the wing back to it's proper shape after I get the part.

STL file is attached, the file is in inches.

PS, I know if this was a part that I designed from scratch I could simply edit the solids file in Autodesk Inventor ... but obviously that's not the case. ... and I'd rather not recreate it from scratch if possible.

Thanks.
