  1. Thanks bcd I followed your lead and went back to the basic structures, no cutouts etc and had indifferent results, as well as going back to previous version. There seemed to be no continuity of which piece was corrupt (or miss drawn...) However with a little investigation & re design within Subdivision I made it a whole piece, then added the cutouts, chamfer etc which maybe a better workflow... I will pass on to my 3D printer friends if they can make it either sold or honeycomb. Although it would be really useful to know how to make a true solid in VW. Thanks again.
  2. Hi, I am struggling to find any solution in forums or online searches...apologies if this has been covered. I'm new to 3D printing, Audio design is my forte but there is not much of that happening at the moment. I have 2x Issues: 1- I have 3 objected that I need to become one solid. I have managed to combine 2 via add solid command.I cannot get the 3rd to join in.... They are all Generic solids and I get the error 'You have tried to create a solid object which cannot be computed. Edit the geometry to resolve this condition and try again' This section started life as a Subdivision and has numerous cutouts & indents via subtract solids as well as some Chamfer & fillet edges. 2- How do I make them solid, when printed they are all hollow. Many thanks. While I have your attention, is it possible to honeycomb the inside rather than making it a solid?
  3. Think I found the solution.... Im not sure why but the green section, while it looked ok in Subdivision, when converted to a Generic Solid it lost a section/plane. After editing slightly in subdivision mode, softened some sharp edges, it was whole when converting back to a Generic Sold. I could then re apply the Subtract Solids to give me the cut away I need and have a solid structure.
  4. Hi, I have a Subdivision object that I have removed a shape with Subtract Solid. It is now a Solid Subtraction. I need the shape to be a solid shape for 3D printing. How do I fill it in or make this edit keeping it as a solid. This is a screen shot of the area I would like to fill... There are 2 parts here (green) that i 'Add Surfaced' together but I could split them and do it in 2 x parts. Hope this all makes sense. . Thank you.
