    Hi scott-tweeddale,

    I took a look at your model. It had a lot of inverted normals. I took the liberty to fix it for you :laughing:

    Just upload it , order it and it's yours :nod:

    Cheers,

    Ralph

    Hi Scot,

    I used the fixed wizard and removed all the inverted normals, and some bad shells. That's all :cool:

    Cheers,

    Ralph

    No, we, at Shapeways, use Magics

    Hi Ralph,

    I saw you fixed some files with magics.
    Could you also fixe the dragonnecklace?
    How did you fix the tank without destroying it?
    Could you show the method with some screenprints?

    Greetings AO

    I'm still having problems working out normals in Rhino and i was wondering if it was possible for you to have a look at these files for me as well?

    Any further help would be much appreciated

    Thanks

    Hi Scott,

    not sure, but you're probably using the wrong mesh settings out of rhino. I just downloaded your lens2 and lens3 models,

    They both contain open meshes which is not good for 3D printing

    If you send the rhino model, I can see if it is a problem with the mesh settings or with the model itself, it could well be a combination of both. I guess that's the case, because lens2 had interfering mesh faces as well.

    Cheers,

    Hi Scott,

    I am glad you succeeded to upload your models!

    Hi AO,


    Just send the model to service@shapeways.com and we will take a look at it :cool:


    There is an Shrinkwrap option in Magics, which takes care of this.

    I will make time for this next week. Maybe i can make a simple tutorial and put in on the support section

    Cheers,

    Ralph
