Hi all,

I came across the two plugins for Google Sketchup:

Manifold

From the description:

Quote:

When run...
It removes 'non-face/non-edge' entities.
It removes 'disconnected geometry'.
It removes 'unfaced-edges'.
It runs an initial 'health-check' and reports.
It removes face 'flaps'.
It heals 'holes'.
It removes 'internal faces'.
It orients all faces consistently to face 'outwards'.
It erases 'coplanar edges' [optional].
It 'triangulates' all of the faces [optional].
It highlights major errors.


Solid inspector

From the description:

a tool that checks if Groups or Components are solids or not, highlighting holes or areas or errors.


They both sound quite useful. Are there any seasoned Sketchup users here who could give them a try and let me know how well it works for Shapeways?

Thanks!

Bart
