Hello,

I wonder if someone could help me, I don't know what wrong with my model.

When i slice the model it look strange? What am I doing wrong? I have done the model in Skretchup Pro 2018.

 

Regards

Daniel

Your STL file is defective.  Did you create it yourself?  If so, what CAD software did you use?  I have tons of advice but I need to know what software you used.

 

Here's a tiny piece of advice, look at it in xray mode - first make sure you are in "preview" mode (at the top center) and then on the upper left switch from "layer view" to "xray view".  If you see any red colors then that is the problem.  Shades of blue and white are good.

Hi, yes, some parts are red. I use Skretchup Pro 2018 when I did the model and exported it to stl in that program. I have done it before and it have worked.

sketchup is not great at making 3d models but you can do it if you follow these tips.  Actually #9 is the most common problem and takes second to fix but you could have issues 4 through 9 as well.   Unlike sketchup, most cad programs don't let you do ANY of these errors (#4 through #9):

Follow the above link and read all that.  It looks like a lot but it's actually pretty simple and straightforward.

 

Also in the future - for next time - I'm told that when using sketchup always use these 2 plugins:
cleanup3 (may be 4 now)
Solid inspector.

Both of these plugins remove any problems with the model unseen by the eye and turn it into a solid model.

Thank you, the problem was that the model not was solid, I added a plugin to sketchup that fixed the model!

 

Thank you again! 👍
