Model Issue Detection

Right after the release of Hard to Remove Support Detection earlier this week, we have another tool to help Hubs check the integrity of the model and find potential printing problems during the Technical Review step.

Hub operators can now find the following potential issues in the model through the 3D viewer:

  • Boundary Edges: these are the edges of topological holes in the model. They show that the model is not watertight, which can be problematic for a slicer.
  • Non-Manifold Edges: these are edges that are part of more than two polygons. This is an indication of messy geometry or overlapping faces, which is a potential problem when printing.

Again, we would love to hear your feedback! You can use the link on the bottom right of the 3D viewer to tell us what you think.

Model issue detection is currently only available for Hubs.
