I am trying to print an STL file that I downloaded it and whilst it looks good, when sliced there are some missing details. I have seen this many times before and when I encounter it I usually move on… But I NEED this file as its part of a wider project, so would like to try and fix it.
I loaded it into Sketchup and it looks fine, but after re-exporting I have the same issue.
Looking at the model, there is a ton of internal geometry and I just wonder if there are any essential tools I should be using to help with this kind of situation…
Does anyone have any general recommendations/advice as to how to clean a model to make it printable? Or is this an impossible question?
I could certainly zoom in and manually remove all geometry and re-draw anything broken (and will if I need too), but I just wondered if there were any helpful extensions that I should be looking to use.
