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!

Try to run the STL file trough Netfabb's cloud fixing engine: https://netfabb.azurewebsites.net/

 

This didn't work either, it just capped the lip completely:

I guess maybe the error lies in that the lip itself is not capped around its perimeter? Is there someone who could fix the file manually for me?

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

Nope, neither of them is checked.

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.

I what program did you make this model ?

it might be a non closed surface causing this problem.

some CAD programs like sketchup are not good in creating watertight models.

I used 123D Design very much. If you are a bitt more advanced, Fusion 360. But this is me, the re are many other packages.... just check the forum for threads about cad / modeling.
