Your modal is not manifold - error message

Post by sapirmash »

Hello,

When I added my STL file to Cura I got this error message:

And here’s how my modal looks like:

Attached my STL file
T-02 (8).stl
(5.83 MiB) Downloaded 27 times
Is there a way to fix it?
Thanks!

I tried to open this on my Cura and it was gigantic. I used my Anycubic Chiron profile which is a 450 x 450 x 500 bed volume

I opened and in the same happened had to scale down from 100 % to 25.4% still was over my bed size so scaled the Z- to my max height 190mm.

I sliced the model while it was laying on its side at 25.4% two oval shaped orbs showed the lower third of the model and the top third.
For some reason the middle section was not there.\

Thanks!
I’ll fix the file size.
When I resized and sliced it, it looks like this:

Regarding the error message is it related to the top section? Where my Vase is open?
