I created a 3D design and began printing. The holes I created in the program will not print. What have I done wrong, or what can I do to make sketchup talk to my makerbot?
Your question is too vague and broad to answer. Please post the model and then someone may be able to help you.
Correct face orientation and one solid?
I drew a lid for a box with 12 holes through the top. I am using a replicator 2x to print and sketchup pro to do the design. I initially printed the design with no issues. I enlarged the holes and exported to print a second time. The holes show on the sketchup and makerbot file link, but do not print. The drawing is done as a single entity as far as I know.
Can you share the model here?
Your object is not a SketchUp solid (it is not even a component or group). If you make it a Component, SketchUp finds flaws that prevent it from being a “solid”. Try TT’s Solid Inspector 2 or TIG’s Solid Solver to see the problems. There are quite a few. The holes are among them.
Thank you for your input. I appreciate it
The Solid Inspector2 worked great. Thank you for your help!
