I am modeling a Ladder Back Chair found in Dave Richards SU Guide for Woodworkers Advanced Techniques book. I have my parts in place and I am trying to do the joinery in the back legs. I use the Trim and Keep Plugin. I did the joinery related to the back splat and rear rungs first- that went OK.
The problem happens after I do the joinery of side rungs to back leg. When I complete the trim/keep of the 1000x scaled up components, things look fine. I delete the scaled up components and zoom back to the regular size model and things still look fine. A check with Solid Inspector2 and the back leg is still “shiny”. However, when I do a File->Save, some of the geometry of the rear leg is removed. File->Save does a validty check. See attached screenshot. The green section is where face geometry was removed after the File->Save.(validity check)
I attached the .skp file below at the point where the side rungs and back leg are scaled up by 1000x. This is the step right before I would perform the trim and keep between each rung and the rear leg.
I also ran cleanup3 prior to this stage.
Can anyone please
provide some guidance as to what I am doing wrong ?. I am at my wits end.
