I am trying to make an object that is very similar to a pipe “tee” fitting. Basically its two pipes with one perpendicular to the other which are joined to form a “T”.
I cannot seem to accomplish the joining of the two pipes. They connect and always look ok in Sketchup make but when exported to STL and loaded into Ultimakers ‘cura’ one can see that whole sections of the object are missing.
I’ve literally spent hours and hours on this and tried at least 15 different permutations of ways to create this object. Every time it fails.
I would just assume that such an object is not possible to create for 3D print in SketchUp since its not a solid modeler but searching the web I have seen some examples of similar object purportedly created in Sketchup… so I guess maybe it can be done?
I’m attaching my sketchup file, the STL file it produces (with the standard sketchup stl export add on), and a screen shot of what Ultimaker’s Cura is showing when reading the stl.
Can anyone assist? I’d be love it someone can fix it and then tell me how they did it so I can reproduce.
