No, Open discussion is not the right place, I moved your post to the Help forum. Here in Help forum you see an "IMPORTANT: ..." link at the top, please follow it and publish your FreeCAD info here.
To analyze your model we rather need the FreeCAD file with the extension .fcstd, not the exported mesh.
I opened your obj in 3d builder on Win and I found issues... I'm attaching what the sw has repaired...KevCan wrote: ↑Tue Jul 31, 2018 7:33 amHello! My first post, and forgive me first as I'm new to FreeCad (and Posting in Forums generally) - your patience and understanding appreciated in advance!!
I've created a part in FreeCad, and sent it to a 3D printing company. The company tells me that the part fails to print correctly, and they are not sure why. They asked me to inspect my files and see if anything is wrong there. I've done that and to me, all looks fine, but wondering if a more expert eye might notice something that I've missed. So my questions are:
1) Is this the right place to ask that question (and if not, can you point me in the right direction)
2) Any ideas as to what may be causing the print to fail?
I've uploaded three files: A screen shot of how the part should look;a photo of how the part looks once printed; the Alias Mesh file as exported from FreeCad.
If it's not clear from the pictures - the clasp in the centre of the part prints as a mess!
Any tips or ideas appreciated.
Thanks for the welcome and the tips. I didn't spot the new post in the help forum, but probably I didn't check hard enough! Either way, I see what I need to do to get help efficiently, what I need to include in the post etc. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
Thanks Fosselius - appreciate you checking for me. I'll use the new post in the help forum to add new files in case that's more helpful
Awesome, thanks for that, much appreciated. I'll download the file and check it out. Out of interest, was it clear to you what the error was, or what was changed?
Ah yes - I've found it now, thank you
