Help with STL model needed

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I have this funnel model that I've been trying to slice, but I get a weird issue. The funnel is as pictured below (it has a slight lip on the inside, on the point where the cone and cylinder meet):

And while it shows just fine when imported in Cura...

... it does't slice correctly (there is a gap where the lip should be, and a round part is shown in the middle):

Could someone tell me how to fix this? I only have the file in .3ds format (https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=8EA4064156DCB145!16863&authkey=!AJJ57nA7-20esrY&ithint=file%2c3ds) and I converted it to .stl. Thanks in advance, guys and girls!

Maybe one of the "Fix Horrible A-B" boxes it ticked in the expert menu ?

 

I don't think this will actually do what he wants, as it will probably just close the hole, as netfabb did... worth a try...

Maybe it's even easier to re-create the thing in the application of choice. It does not look to complex...? Especially if you have the measurements, it might be better.

But besides your main model, there is more needed to get your idea across vividly! An architect regularly uses various entourage sets to help bring these ideas and models to live.
