    I use varicad for 3d

    I drew a manifold , and its not very watertight

    I then used various meshing programs , meshlabs, Gmsh, netgen

    I use these for Calculix ( an engineering software )

    The manifold meshed well in Netgen and Gmsh

    but in Blender if was 100 non manifold , full of problems ( 1 or 2 I can accept but this would be quicker to redraw ! )

    So it maybe the output of Varicad ?

    anyway any suggestions to produce a watertight drawing?
