I have some old VCP files made some years ago. Now I want to slice the STL in S3D for 3D_printing, and getting a "self intersecting surfaces" warning?

Is there a way to find and correct/repair that in VCP V10? Or maybe with the V10 PowerPack, before i exporting to STL?

You can see if Verify: Check Object will pick it up.

Visually you can try the 3D Print Tools : Slices command. If you have a loop in the 2D slice you might have a self intersection in the 3D model.
