I was just wondering if there’s been any updates to the 3D print prep work flow over the past few years. Currently I use Solid Inspector, but it can’t fix 90% of the issues it finds, so I end up spending hours, even days, tinkering with my models to try and fix small holes and internal faces.
Right now I’m trying to print this model:
Backstory: It’s of the mechanic shop next door to where I live. The building caught fire recently and I’m helping the owner design the repairs (for free). He’s a great guy and a very active member of our community. I wanted print him a model of his building while he’s operating out of another location temporarily for him to keep on his desk as a gesture from our block club. Was hoping it would help him remember how much he loves his shop and help him stay positive while he tries to rebuild.
Anyways, does anyone have any suggestions for a better work flow? I had made a second file of this model and spent 3 hours editing it to make it more print friendly, but I forgot to save so I kind of have to start over from scratch now so I figured I’d ask before I get started.
