I am trying to make this model to 3D print.
But whilst the model in the pic looks good, Its broken and solid inspector throws up a ton of error.
In creating this, I got to this point with no issues:
But when I draw the rectangle to close the top surface this happens:
I assumed I would be able to just select each of the C shapes and delete them, but selecting them highlights the whole top surface.
I am sure this is all about “intersection”, but I have tried “Intersecting” faces over and over and it doesn’t help… I have intersected the the WHOLE model and it took about 1 hour to complete and when finished and it looked good (See the result at the very top of this post) but its still broken.
This kind of thing always catches me out and I have no idea how to fix it… How exactly can I create the top layer over this model in a way that the cutouts are able to be selected and deleted?
I have attached the file incase you want to take a look…
