Hi all,

I have been drawing an adaptor for my 3D printer, that will take a Polymaker reel, rather than its built in SmartReel. I sussed out a simple way to do this without re-spooling, but when I exported into the .stl format for the slicer aka Automaker, I got an error message, saying it wouldn't print, and needed analysing in some software or other.

I thought I'd import this stl file into SharkCAD Pro again, and see what the PowerpackPro Utilities would do with it. After analysis using Verify, I had three parts and a couple of facets, but it was manifold. I clicked on the Repair functions and the facets etc were sorted. After exporting as an stl file again and loading in the slicer for the 3D printer, I got no errors, and it's printing now.

Well impressed software team, really useful toolset, and thanks for saving me a stack of time trying to find the error in the original model.
