The most common errors in 3D models
Holes in the model
If a 3D model is in a good state it exhibits no “leaky” spots, i.e. it is free of any holes. Unfortunately, these leaks often appear quite easily. In this case, the 3D printer has difficulties to distinguish between inner and outer parts of the model. This has consequences: misprints, crashes of the printer and/or wrongly printed models.
Our repair service automatically detects such holes. Depending on their sizes, it creates one or more triangles to fix the model as good as possible.
The surface of a 3D model consists of a number of triangles with edges that are shared with other triangles. Often unconnected edges and complete free planes appear inside a 3D model file. This can confuse 3D printers and lead to erroneous printouts.
Fix unconnected planes
Free floating, unconnected planes are detected and removed by the repair service.
A normal vector defines the orientation of a triangle's surface. It may point in- or outwards of the model. The normal vectors can be visualized as arrows pointing away from the surface in a 90° degree angle. In many models, these normals are oriented wrongly what causes the printer to interchange inner and outer parts of the model.
Wrongly aligned normals are automatically flipped by the repair service what enables the printer to distinguish inner and outer parts correctly.
