thanks Daid for the help !!
so would this be the right process.
(1) make model in 3ds max
(2) open 3ds file in MeshLap and check that every thing is closed up and working.
(3) Then save as STL and bring it into Netfabb or Replicator.
(4) Then print from ReplicatorG.
is that right ?
Meshlab can try to fix the model for you.
Skeinforge will throw a lot of fuss at you for having a model with holes, but still will try to slice it. Results may vary.
SkeinPyPy might help you to identify the holes with the X-Ray feature.
3D studio max has a "STL check" modifier, which shows a lot of problems, including holes, double faces. But not intersecting faces, which are also a problem.
ReplicatorG... won't do you any good.
And I don't think any software allows you to split up a single model into multiple prints right now. You'll have to do that manually.
