    Ive created something in zbrush as an experiment. Got a bunch of error emails when trying to upload. Used meshlab and got a bunch of different error messages.

    I have no idea what to do now. :confused

    If anyone could help it would be most appreciated. Ive never made anything for 3d production before so much of it is very new to me.

    hi nilbymouth, the model looks simple enough. I can fix this for you but it would be better if you post the .ztl... What scale are you trying to print it?

    I turned the notworking into a isworking.
    Its a meshlab stl.

    Thankyou so much. I have no idea how you managed that and I hope that it didnt take too long.

    Also thanks to daddymack for the offer.

    Dont know where I went wrong. I'll try some other experiments out and see where it all falls down.

    I forgotten to mention, check the size of the doll, I think became a little bit smaller.
    It might be something like 10 percent smaller.
    One of my settings was wrong, meanwhile I solved the issue for me but after I fixed your file.
    Sorry for that.

    Greetings AO

    Size was something else I had failed to consider - or rather ive only ever worked with 3d apps with 2d output in mind - so its never been an issue. Steep learning curve.

    Im using blender to size it so it doesnt cost a fortune :)

    Just excited at getting something from screen to 3d print.
