    All,

    My first model upload attempt failed so I used Netfabb to make repairs because it would not upload. The model then uploaded. I have since ordered the model.

    I just sent it to a friend at a local college mechanical department who said he could print a few samples today. He said it still has errors.

    Should I use meshlab also or what else can I try. I used the tutorials section to make the repairs as I am new to this.

    My friends last day in this department is Thursday and he will print a few for free. Any help or another forum on this topic would be great! Have to keep confidential for customer so I can not post model to public. Thanks for any help!!

    Just to clarify, it meets thickness, and is an stl file.

    ok...my friend told me the model has unsmooth edges on the curves. I used google sketchup to draw this. How can I make the curved edges smooth? Thanks!
