I want to modify a 3d SU model from Thingiverse, then get it 3d printed.
I’ve never done any 3d printing, but I figured I needed to make sure the object to be modified was a solid.
I used the clean-up extension which fixed some things. I also had to close a small open face manually. But, I can’t fix the 313 short edges Solid Inspector is complaining about.
I saw a thread that suggesting scaling the model by 1000x. The info button associated with the errors also suggest scaling the model
If I scale the model by 1000x, the short edge complaint goes away. But, they just come back when I scale it back down again.
So, I’m missing something. Is there something I should do when them model is scaled 1000x so it’s still a solid when I shrink it back?
