Adding thickness to a subdivision

Recommended Posts

When you add thickness with Shell Solid, the created surface can not be self overlapping. i.e. If you have a 4" half tube and you tell it to have a thickness of 2" or more, then the created surfaces will overlap and it will fail.  


Try with a very small value and see if it works from them and then work up from there.

Ah yes ill give that a try. It is a covid-19 mask. I am 3D printing them for a hospital in NYC. I found some on Thingverse but id like to make changes base on availability of materials and speed of production. When i bring the STL file into VW. it is very difficult to manipulate and really slows down processing.
