    The attached file is the design As of now it isn't quite finished and needs some revision. For some reason when I upload it to shapeways the two rotating connectors (the ones that look like a beam of steel cut in half with a raised dot in the middle) don't show up on the preview page.

    I'm not sure what is causing this so can someone please point me to the problem so I can fix it? I went through a lot of troubleshooting on my last project and this didn't happen to me in the process.

    This is what it looks like Link!
    The two poles to hold the device and the two connectors are missing in the upload but they are there in the file.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Kyle,

    Please have a look at this topic:
    http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=6780&a mp;start=0&

    If I'm correct, you are having the same problems as this customer did.

    By extruding the parts in each other they will be unified by our mesh medic upload system.
    Currently your model has overlapping faces which is why parts are getting deleted.

    Please know that I cannot guarantee this above 100% as I do not have Sketchup to check the original model.
