Intersecting meshes not printing

Postby rgriesbeck » Mon Mar 13, 2017 2:53 am

I've got a model that has 2 intersecting parts. On my other printers, the model prints fine, but on my N2, the printer is leaving gaps and holes around the intersection.

Any thoughts?

you need to build a proper model! Did you try the repair function in ideamaker? If that doesn't work then you need to do a boolean add of the 2 meshes in something like Blender
