Repair the Mesh

► REPAIR THE MESH

To slice and print correctly the mesh needs to be water tight. If the model is shaded red then it needs to be repaired.

Click on the Repair Icon in the top tool bar to open the mesh repair tools. The repair tool will automatically analyze the model and show you the errors. Print Studio auto repair tools are very powerful at fixing issues so click on auto-repair.

After the auto-repair if there are any large holes in the mesh Print Studio will highlight them. You can use the auto repair tools to fill the holes automatically.

Once repaired the model will be displayed as blue and you're ready to generate supports.

Within the repair tools there are also a few model editing functions such as cropping or plane cutting. This can be useful to make small edits to the model before printing.
