A noop question related to working with 3D models:
I imported a model from SolidWorks and it appears to be a combination of 3D and 2D geometry, including a great deal of internal 3d detail. It is an airplane with the seat… in the cockpit and a very thin surface for the canopy. I’d like to 3D print the model, but the slicer ignores the canopy data and prints the seat… Is there a way to just get the ‘outer shell’? The SketchUp outer shell command doesn’t seem to work, since I am selecting more than just solids. I tried to use some Ruby to just select the solids but that didn’t seem to work well either.
Any ideas on how to tackle this (even if I have to resort to Blender or some other tools).
